Re: The New Garmin GI 275 Attitude Indicator (AI/ADI)

This webinar provides a good overview of the GI 275: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdA9_5ODACY&t=2062s To skip ahead, at 32:56-35:50 it talks about compatibility with legacy autopilot systems, including the KAP140. That's what got me thinking I could replace my TC. But, but I think (in the case of...

Re: The New Garmin GI 275 Attitude Indicator (AI/ADI)

So I did a little further research and according the the DA40 AMM Dwg DA4-9222-10-03 Connector J3492, the only inputs from the TC to the KAP140 are roll rate +, roll rate - and rate valid which match up with the KAP140 installation guide showing those inputs for pins 3, 21 and 10. So...if the GI 275...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Re: Any value of XM weather?

Re: Da42 flight school in ga/al/tn

I realize these folks are not in GA / AL / TN, but they are a top notch group of guys and very reasonably priced. I got my ME here and was VERY satisfied:

Re: A flight to nowhere?

I made a quick hop over to my mechanic (located at a different airport) for an oil change. He had a skeleton crew. Normally his shop is very busy, but today is was very quiet.

Re: Austro flywheel/TVD failure rate

For the uninitiated...what is "failing"? Is it cracked or out of balance or....?
