Looks good. Isn’t it too shaky ?

Re: iPad in DA40

This is my present setting. I use two adhesive RAM bases. Everything is out of the way and I can grab the iPad mini out of its support if I want to read an approach plate closer e.g.
I can still use my paper pad on the knee.

Re: Broken HDG knob on G1000 MFD

It’s not the plastic knob but the rotating switch that’s broken, so you need to remove the screen and open it. But I don’t believe that replacing a rotating/pushing switch would take more than 1 or 2 work hour for a technician. I still find that pretty expensive.

Re: Broken HDG knob on G1000 MFD

I have been quoted 1800€ + worktime. That’s expensive considering the value of the broken switch.
Garmin has a monopolistic position.
Glad to see contenders like Dynon reaching certified aviation.

Broken HDG knob on G1000 MFD

Hello,
We have a broken HDG knob on our MFD. It looks like the only way to fix it is to exchange the whole MFD.
Did Anyone have the same problem ?

Re: Hairline crack at wing root

Hello,
Yesterday I also noticed paint cracks for the first time on the root of left wing, but parallel to the fuselage. Has anybody already seen such hairline cracks ? I guess they are also cosmetic.
