Jon... those are some hot temperatures! Usually a little cooler here than Phoenix but it's 108F now and should be 113F this afternoon... I'm planning on an early flight tomorrow as the heat is supposed to be more intense here tomorrow.

Thanks for the replies. I fly mine weekly so I donít see battery drain being a big issue. Yes, I do believe youíre still supposed to have a panel mounted clock for IFR. Iíll hook it back up and see how it goes.
