Re: Black Otter Tease

I believe it is Tuesday. Those that leave the show Thursday need the extra day to recover from the “meat over” on Wednesday. :lol:

Re: Black Otter 2018!

The Queen of the Fleet has 6 open seats. Six *legal* seats that is. Bullock can ride in the cargo area if need be, and as a favor to my other passengers.... :P As for Erik, he may not have any open seats as he may be bringing guests. So don’t count him as available. It’s getting to the point where w...

Re: Black Otter 2018!

So has the date been officially changed? I just realized that I have another dinner to attend on Tuesday. I may have a major decision to make.

Can’t help it that I’m so popular........ 8)

Chad? Never heard of him... :grin:

Tuesday works for me. Adding excess protein/fat to the mix of beer from the tasting and beer fairy parties should finish me off nicely.

Re: Panel Upgrade

As others have noted, including GRT, the fact that the image is not at infinity makes use of this particular hud limited. Having said that, I do li...

Re: Panel Upgrade

Quick progress update The GPS trouble was indeed a TU antenna connector. The antenna I was using had a threaded connector on the cable, and then an adapter that converted it to an MCX push on connector. The problem was with the crimp holding the threaded connector to the antenna cable. When I pulled...

Re: Panel Upgrade

The beat goes on. Still troubleshooting. Had a setback, so haven’t been in the air much until lately. I’ve gotten the EIS programmed and now seems to be behaving itself. Nice to see that dang red light go out now! I am having trouble with the HUD crashing on me. Starts up great, shows proper info. T...

Re: Panel Upgrade

A quick up date: The Trio EZ pilot is now playing nice and is tracking a flight plan. Solid as a rock I can now set up and follow a fight plan after entering the settings I posted earlier. Still need to do some homework and tweak the EIS. After I acknowledge a messages that a value is out of paramet...

Re: Panel Upgrade

A quick update regarding the upgrade. I’ve flown the airplane and really like the presentation of the GRT Sport SX. The 8.4” screen seems to be a good fit for me. I can see that it will be some time before I am utilizing all it’s functions. Need to learn my way around a bit yet. Some squawks still a...

Re: Panel Upgrade

https://i.imgur.com/JMX45Hm.jpg Houston, we have GPS! Switching the GPS to serial port 4 (getting it off serial 3) did the trick. I set the baud rate to 38400 as instructed by GRT, but no joy. So I did the Bullock and went back to 115200 and voila! Long Live Mikey! Now I suppose I'm going to have t...

Re: Panel Upgrade

Yeah, I saw that Mike. Can’t figure why GRT is having me use 38400 baud. Talked to them today and apparently since I have an internal GPS that is designated at serial port 3, I can’t use that port for Rx/Tx of my Safefly. Who knew??! Also confirmed with them that I am to use 38400 vs 115200. I’m goi...

Re: Panel Upgrade

It was good to see that screen flicker to life, that’s for sure!

Going to do all the calibration etc tomorrow (1/20), and if I get it done, may get a flight in as well. Just want to get everything “sorted” as Ed says on Wheeler Dealers.

Sure is great to see 782P back in one piece!
