  1. Sure! 3 items: ETX680C Custom fit C case battery box #151124 12V 5mm LED RED light - 48" wire Total $462 with shipping. You’ll need that battery box. Flight design can provide you with an MRA for $60. www.earthxbatteries.com
  2. I recently switched to the Earth-X lithium battery and I’ve been very happy with the insane starting power and the ability to finally leave all the lights on as I fly at night. I couldn’t be happier with the upgrade. My CTsw has amber fuel sight tube lights interesting Kent
  3. I think it’s people accidentally pushing that button as they are scrolling. Flyers here are pretty friendly.
  4. When calling, just don’t call it an LOA. Officially, it’s an MRA.
  5. The other option that works well with the 796 is of course a Garmin GTX345. I had to get the WAAS version though.
  6. Two or three more in Connecticut, including Andrew who is on here. Heck, we could have a fly-in! Message me and we could get together! kent
  7. I talked to Sensenich and they told me that, with some lead time, you can special order it with the tips in different colors. I thought that was pretty slick. They sure are nice looking.
  8. It’s a must do for anyone in the area!
  9. Poughkeepsie, NY. Just 75 miles north of NYC (pictured in a bit of clouds).
  10. Can you tell us more about the process? Did you have to make up a pdf for the shop to use as a guide or did they just copy from the existing markings? Does it seem scratch resistant? What is the black? Powder coating? Beautiful! Now you have me thinking. Kent
  11. As I remember, I tried stereo and it only came through on one side. So I selected mono and it works perfect.
  12. I’m excited about it. Panel mounted airbags standard is a first for any airplane. And an electric option? Yes!
  13. Nice bird, Andrew! i got to play with the triple HDX displays on Andrews airplane when he gave me a ride back home and I just have to say... WOW! I was surprised at how crisp everything looked and just how intuitive the Dynon setup was. Such a nice flying plane, too! Kent
  14. The sad part is, that was the first time I flew a CT as I had to get 2 hours of time in it solo for insurance purposes. Five years later, I bought the plane from my friend Russell Croman and have now flown it for 200 hours and I still can’t land it as well as I did that day! Glad he got proof in the form of video. Kent
  15. I’m happy you posted about your project, and I’m looking forward to getting mine. Wait until he sees the price for a new set of seatbelts I’ve found. But that’s for a later post... Kent
  16. This is great! I’ll be following along via instagram and Facebook and YouTube (don’t want to miss a thing!) Kent
  17. I did a Garmin 345 WAAS with antenna and had it professionally installed. Total was $7450. I absolutely love it. Works well with multiple ForeFlight devices and Garmin Pilot and Garmin 796 all at the same time.
  18. Once they’re verified, I’m in for a set! Kent
  19. On a CTsw, it's tough. I managed with a smaller roll-aboard once and then switched to some nice LL Bean duffle bags.
  20. Hi Andreas, Sure hope you find someone to fly with. I’d love to, but I’m a ways away from you (New York). Two things you might want to pass on to any instructor you fly with: Flight Training Supplement: http://documents.flightdesignusa.com/flight_training_supplement.pdf Aircraft Operating Instructions: http://documents.flightdesignusa.com/SW-POH.pdf Great reading. Don’t give up, it’s an amazing airplane with fantastic performance and efficiency. Kent
  21. That’s fantastic! I was just there a few days ago for lunch. Love the pic! Kent
