Cool! Your gonna love the G3X... I would however get the GDL39 and don't waste money/time with the XM. Unless you want to listen to XM music, save the money and get the GDU370 instead of the GDU375. Even if you don't have ADS-B out, the FIS-B weather works great. The North East is covered with groun...

If you have a NAV or GPS source that provides vertical guidance, currently the Skyview's autopilot will not couple to it. That means if you plan to use the AP to fly IFR approaches, you will be forced to hand fly the vertical portion. Dynon is claiming that they will have vertical coupling for their...

For me it came down to what features were available now and how they were implemented as well as how well the user interface and buttonology was designed. The fact that Dynon still does not have vertical autopilot coupling was also a deal breaker. (I know they say they are releasing it shortly....un...

Bob,

Very nice.

Your gonna love the GTN. You almost don't need a manual to learn how to use it.

I am sure the AFS stuff will be equally as amazing.

Mike, It is a major rush to do it for the first time as you now know. It is a blast to do it over and over again. You will find that it takes practice to get it super smooth, stay on heading and altitude. The more you practice, you will find you don't need so much pitch up in the beginning. I had a ...

I saw this over on another forum... Hopefully this is not true unless he wants it to be. If it is true, it is a loss for the EAA: "[QUOTE=ccsmith51;753276]I just saw this on Facebook?

Hey Brantel while the carnivores discuss eating raw meat at the Otter can you tell us why you picked the G3X over AFS, GRT et al. Pat Oh it is not raw, only mostly raw...I have to honestly say however that is the best Prime Rib I have ever had! I am ready for mine again this year right now! Dynon i...

Mike,

Sounds like your well on your way to a fix.

In my case my 430W antenna would kill everything else.

I am starting to think that the engine compartment is not a good place for these antennas....

Let us know how it goes....

I think that on my Lycoming cylinders, there is a screw that goes in there to the cylinder head. I think that is the one I ended up putting a washer in between the head and the baffle for more cooling.

Where the Black cleco is?
