Re: DA42 vortex generators

Thanks for sharing data but I still miss to see benefits. On the other side, people spend thousands of dollars to get few knots of cruising speed. For example such gain you get by changing standard props to scimitar.

Bartek, I assume Scott can add your name and aircraft on the list.

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

This issue has been brought to the attention of Diamond management and I got confirmation that we would get sound proposal by the end of the year. Let’s see what will happen in next two months. However, I’m encouraging everyone to join this petition to justify the need for resolving this longstandin...

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

G1000 software development and certification for TDI DA42s could actually require a $million investment.

No way but let’s not waste more space on this and let’s agree that we don’t agree. It’s not development from the scratch and all components in DA42-VI that exist in DA42 have the same interface.

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

Where does the $1 million cost come from? It comes as weak attempt for justifying neglecting customers by impressing them with 7-figures numbers. BTW Mr. Crosby spent less for certifying CD-155 engines for DA42 (including all accessories and aerodynamic changes), new exhaust and Scimitar propellers...

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

Assuming that 1,000 airplanes buy the update Unfortunately it’s much less, I would say that even 100 is quite optimistic. It’s not easy to estimate number of man/days needed for development/testing of software product you’re not familiar with in details but having working product certified for the ...

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

Since this seems to be directed at me, I'm merely questioning the economics that would permit a manufacturer to provide a software-only upgrade for an 11+ year-old aircraft running discontinued avionics. What's the business model for this that would allow the manufacturer to recover its development...
