    I'm looking for a small com/transponder setup and am wondering what
    suggestions you guys have? I have a Terra, but they were aquired by Free
    Flight and do not support my models any more. I though I would sell them on
    ebay since they work and then get something that will be supported if it
    breaks in the future.

    A very small digital would be great.

    Jim!

    Jim-
    Becker Avionics makes a small, digital com and transponder, each of which fits in a 21/4" inst. hole. The com is model# AR 4201, the txp is model# ATC4401. They aren't cheap, at about 1200-1300 each, but not outrageously expensive, considering their small size. Check Spruce, Chief Aircraft, Eastern Avionics, the usual suspects.

    I am very happy with my MicroAir 720. Fits into the standard 2.25" hole, lots of features. Runs about $800 or so.

    Their corresponding transponder is great also, with altitude encoding, pressure setting, etc. Fits in 2.25" also. Not cheap, but most transponders aren't.

    Think about a VAL-Com 760. Anice radio and a little less than Becker or Micro-aire. I have one in my Cessna 150.

    It is larger, 12 inches deep 6 and a 1/4 wide and an inch and a half thick.

    If you are looking for any electrical components I use aerco. They supply thousands of parts, you should be able to find one that suits your needs here
