SMS & Data?

So I was browsing the Diamond website and noticed this statement in a testimonial on the DA42 page: Data link is great. Weather and sending emails and SMS at altitude. http://www.diamond-air.at/en/twin-engine-aircraft/da42-vi/ Is data and SMS part of the G1000nxi package? This is the first I've hear...

Re: Main Battery Lasted Over 3.25 after Main Tie Trip

Sandy, I'm curious why your battery required such a high current to charge. It seems that even without a battery minder connected, the battery voltage on a new battery shouldn't drop that much even if it was sitting for a couple of weeks. Had you been using the avionics in the hangar assuming that t...

Re: Weight & Balance App?

I like "Gyronimo" on the iPad, it gives you a graphical display with sliders to easily adjust all parameters. I also use the W&B feature in ForeFlight, although I'm not sure what subscription level this requires.

Re: Slow Landing Flaps Deployment

I would suspect that one of the flap limit switches may be sticking or starting to fail. I had some limit switch failures a while back that prevented the flaps from moving. Before they completely failed, I experienced delays prior to flap movement similar to what you described, although the length o...

Re: DA40 Rentals in Hawaii? (Oahu)

Hey Adam. No, I did not find any in Oahu. I did talk to a flight school that had other types of aircraft for rent but didn't get to work a flight into my schedule.

Re: Tiedown for DA40

Dan,

I was thinking about buying a set of these Slidedowns. What do you think of yours after having them for a year now?

Re: Rudder cable replacement requirement changed

How would you know if you have stainless steel rudder cables or not? Was there a certain year that they started being used or was this a factory option?
