  1. Okay, I have both (replaced with Whelen) and someone else here was looking for a green. The plane is a 2010 with 700+ don’t know the time on the lights. PM me.
  2. I just replaced mine with Whelens. Both are available. From a 2010 CTLS with about 700 hours. Can’t tell you the hours on the lights. Make an offer. PM me.
  3. I was fortunate to attend their last class in Oshkosh. (No, not during Airventure.) Great stuff.
  4. Last time I drove to St. Paul and delivered my chute. Not a bad drive and I have kids in the Twin Cities. I understand that the company moved to North Carolina.
  5. I have had two flat tires in eight (roughly) years. One was about 1500 ft. Down a 9,000 ft. Runway where my hangar was about 9,000 ft. away. The other was on an approach to single runway and about 3,500 feet from the FBO. For some reason I could not talk either FBO to hand tow my plane!😎 Neither had a tube or tire to fit, and, in the first instance they did not want to leave me on the main runway. So I have violated the rule twice with no ill effects. I did emphasize that they needed to go slow, take wide turns and be very careful over bumps. Sometimes you can’t follow the rules.
  6. I ran a not this last year. It came down to three things. 1) A CFI who did my BFR telling me to carry more power — FD says 10-20%, 2) watching my speed from downwind to short final (looking for -500 ft halfway through base), and 3) I had lost the habit of looking down the runway as I look to round out (flare). I have been very good at go around. So I have not had a many bad landings but still had frustrations with long landings. I figure the 10% based on max 5800 rpm = 580 added to 1800 = 2380. I use 2400. Works for me. Power off over the threshold.
  7. My guess is the hole for the flap control arm.
  8. Is it possible to soak it in a bucket of water to disable it?
  9. I am surprised... you can get it at Walmart. https://www.walmart.com/ip/airgizmo-panel-dock-for-garmin-aera-795-796/811692460?wmlspartner=wmtlabs&adid=22222222223312530776&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=e&wl1=o&wl2=m&wl3=74354587194621&wl4=pla-4577954131695435&wl5=&wl6=&wl7=& wl10=Walmart&wl12=811692460_10000000931&wl14=airgizmo&veh=sem
  10. I got the okay to put in an Airgizmo iPad Mini dock in place of my 696 dock at the center of my panel. It works very well.
  11. PETG would stand the weather better and is stronger than PLA. It also does not give off fumes like ABS.
  12. FWIW - I have a lot of Harbor Freight stuff but they tend to wear. They give a lifetime guarantee but I decided to get hex with hardened ends so I don’t have to keep bringing them back. (Three hex wrenches and a Phillips screwdriver.)
