Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Scott- you can also sign me up. I would like to think that Diamond would support continued upgrades to our avionics but it appears that for many years Diamond had been holding on by a shoestring while sales declined. I remember when I bought my DA40 in 2006 how the factory was buzzing and then going...

Re: Rear window adhesive

I’m pretty sure it’s just 3M 5200.

Re: ForcedAeroMotive: SuperCharged DA40

Congratulations- I can’t believe how such a long and painful process that was. No DA40 for me any more but I hope a few people take advantage of this. Looks like a great performance upgrade. The ability to fly higher and faster will be great.

Re: Ice Protection!

Some of the earlier pre2007 aircraft were sent out without the FIKI certification as it was not yet approved by the FAA. You may be lucky enough that you don’t need a new placard ( some went out with the correct placard even before the certification) or equipment and it will just be a functional tes...

Re: Jeppesen Chartview to Flitecharts

http://thinkaviation.net/difference-between-jepp-and-faa-charts-part1/ This is a good comparison of both charts. After using the Jeppesen charts for about 7 months now I really like the layout of them over the Naco charts for a few reasons. The briefing strip is easier to read and it's easier to pic...

Re: Borked the Wingtip - new strobes?

I have a great carbon fiber repair guy in Rhode Island. PM me your e-mail and I'll send you his contact information. If you are still flying the plane then it's repairable.

Re: Time to start a DA50 forum again

Who picked out the color scheme for this aircraft? It's not one that jumps out at me as colors that would sell well. Gold with pink and black striping. I would really like to see the performance numbers for this. If it was the right price point it could be a real Cirrus competitor with the right mar...

Re: Adding WAAS?

I would say after having over 2000 hours in a non WAAS DA40 and many approaches that if there was one upgrade that I would get before WAAS it would be Synthetic Vision. Having had SV in my DA42 which is also non WAAS having guidance of SV is far more beneficial in hand flying approaches than WAAS wo...

Re: Location of GMU44 & GRS77 in a 2011 DA40-XLS

I had my magnetometer in the wing replaced once under warranty early on due to the HDG Xing out while taxiing and the issue went away for many years. Then I would get intermittent issues of the same thing. Not wanting to spend the money on a new magnetometer under my own dime I just ignored the nuis...
