    Big TV vs small TV

    If you want new, affordable, and reliable instruments you might take a look at the MGL velocity singles. I flew to SnF behind a very nice dual Dynon set up but my budget won't ever see such in my plane. My MGL singles have been a good choice ...

    Big TV vs small TV

    I would guess somewhere in the 2' range.

    Big TV vs small TV

    As copilot on our recent SnF trip I sat behind a 7" Dynon screen. If I were to install one it would be a 10" like the pilot had. Great system with tons of information but a bit hard to see some of the small stuff on the 7" screen. For the time being, in my plane I'm satisfied with my MGL singles ...

    Sun n Fun 2021

    Actually got back this Monday afternoon. Went with a friend VFR and seen the rain coming. Got out Saturday afternoon but the rain across the upper part of the state was too daunting to fly through VFR so we stopped for the night. Got stopped again on Sunday as going through the storms ahead...

    Valve Problem

    I remember my father's 1951 Plymouth Cambridge with a flat head six. Great car and neat engine although I was quite young and I just marveled at it. As to the bottom exhaust exit idea ... yes the Corvair heads use a "crossflow" design with canted valves.

    TONS of low cost King Mode C's out there... opinions?

    Yep ... I took mine over in November and they did the deal with the altimeter, encoder, and transponder. Took a few guys and hour or so and the cost was $125.00. I was impressed with the accuracy of my MGL Flight-2 instrument:

    TONS of low cost King Mode C's out there... opinions?

    With most used transponders like we are discussing here being in the few hundred dollar range I believe I'd look to buy another instead of sending one for repairs unless I could get a guaranteed quote up front that made the cost of repairs reasonable and worth it. The repair might be a better...

    TONS of low cost King Mode C's out there... opinions?

    I have a Garmin 320A transponder. I believe (I'd have to look at wiring schematics to be sure) the wiring connector is the same for the Garmin 327 transponder. If so, there is a lot of easy replacements that can be had if the one I have should die. Along with that I installed the uAvionix...

    Current state of Great Plains Aircraft?

    V-dub engines fly a lot of planes. We really need them to be successful ...

    Home Depot Plane

    I scanned through the video and heard him say "lightweight" as I looked at what appeared to be a 2X4 rear spar ... :fear:
