Re: FS 210 follies

FF support asked me to perform some additional FP transfer tests. One of them was this: Create a route from KAUS to KCHS and then add the RNAV (GPS) Y RWY 21 with the BAMDE IAF. I think they expected it to fail and, indeed, it did. They continue to investigate. I'd like those with Connext in whateve...

Re: Kick the Kneeboard - Something Missing?

I've done some experimenting with using the keyboard in the scratchpad. Given I use an 11" iPad in landscape and my questionable penmanship, this really looks promising for certain stuff, like frequency, altitude, and heading changes.

Make sure you save the old ones for flashlights, etc. They work fine...
That's why they're free , except for the little bit of dielectric grease used. I put 'em all in a plastic bag and use them as needed. They still have years of shelf life.

Re: Kick the Kneeboard - Something Missing?

I had a thought I'll be trying out. Because it's somewhat inconvenient to jump to the scratchpad screen while enroute, just try writing the change right on the chart. For example, near CLARA, I got a clearance Direct JJETT. Just write "D" and an arrow to JJETT. After (or later in) the flight, I can...

Re: Which update bundle should I get from Garmin?

Having just GNS units, my choices are more limited/simple. FWIW my obstacle database is dated 2007 :roll: . I'll update it one of these days. Meanwhile, I still get incessantly nagged when flying through the Columbia Gorge :scream:

Re: arizona baffle

My DA40 has had a hotter #1 cylinder (anywhere from 10-30 degrees from the next hottest) for years. I recently put on a new #1 cylinder and the problem, if anything, gotten worse. (The new cylinder has 45 hours on it and the temp is 20-30 degrees hotter than the next hottest cylinder across a range...

Re: SureFly Electronic Ignition

Rich, Brian, Steven - Are you still happy with your Surefly ignitions? My right mag has gone bad (after less than 200 hours) so I'm considering adding a Surefly. Like Rich I have the VM1000 so as I understand it I have to switch the RPM sensor from the right to the left mag. Rich, I know you ended ...
