Re: Ceramic coating and stripes

You might want to check out this website Neema. After several collaborative brainstorming sessions / drafts with Jonathan McCormick, I was very happy with the final design he came up with for N189Y: https://www.planeschemer.com/blog/ I can vouch for Jonathan, PlaneSchemers and his other company - E...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

It's amazing to me that you have to go through this to get Diamond's attention. When Peter Maurer told me almost 10 years ago that it was unreasonable to expect Diamond to support my (then) 11 year old out-of-production DA20-A1, I saw the handwriting on the wall. I sold my ownership stake in a beaut...

Re: 90 deg. Oil Filter Adapter

Something to consider with the 90 degree adapter - as you said, the oil drains back into the engine. So yes, oil filter changes are less messy. It also means the oil filter needs to be refilled with oil (if you have sat long enough for it to drain) every time you start. I have one on my RV-7A with a...

Re: What comes after a DA40?

I went the experimental route and built an RV-7A. Also building an RV-10, which really is the replacement for the DA-40.

The -7 is a lot of fun and is a greenhouse like the DA-20 and 40.

Re: DA20-A1 battery low volts after 6 months

Unless there is a PMA'd battery or there is another battery specified in the IPC, I believe the answer is no.

Re: How do I upgrade 912 80hp to 912 100 hp

Unfortunately the ULS is not a certified engine and can't be used on a K100 conversion - unless you want to convert your airplane to Experimental category.

Re: Pilot performance ups and downs

Hope you bring your DA40 down to CCO. It will be right at home with Falcon Aviation Academy and their fleet of Diamonds of various flavors. Maybe I can talk you into a ride? I miss our DA40 sometimes and really liked the way it flew. I'll trade you a ride in my RV-7A.

Re: Mini Dart

Not certified, but an RV-7A has two seats, is aerobatic and can be IFR certified. You can get (or build your own) for less than $150K. Many have the bulletproof Lycoming IO-360-M1B (virtually identical to the DA40 M1A).

Re: High CHT and EGT on one cylinder

If you are running ROP and you have both high CHT and EGT, you might have a clogged injector.
