    Like most businesses I'm struggling to find new hires. A buddy sums it up well. The guys you want are already working. The guys not working? You don't want to hire them.

    #5 cylinder baffle is part #1250134-1 or -2 for serial numbers 18502311 thru 18502392 and 18502825 and up respectively. I don't see such a part for the 180 but I didn't look very hard.

    I'm playing with Caltopo but it isn't intuitive on a smart phone. I'll try later from a desktop. I agree that in a scale less than 2 miles GP topos aren't good. When I do ground-based stuff I've been...
  9. Caltopo, Geospatial PDF's, and ForeFlight

    Good info! Topo maps were one of my biggest disappointments in Foreflight and one of the reasons I kept GP.

    For comparison, screen shots from my iPhone.

    Don't care about warranty so not a problem. I'd rather have a GDL-82 than a Tail Beacon so finding a way around the Garmin install requirement is appealing.

    Thread drift. Whew knew, right?

    If I buy a GDL-82 outright it's sold for experimental use but the box is TSO'd. Garmin certified boxes MUST be installed by Garmin dealers. Not interested. Why...

    The GDL-82 uses the existing transponder antenna for out and a WAAS GPS antenna for position. You shouldn't need a big ground plane to receive GPS. Since the shop wants to add the ground plane on the...

    Plot where you'd like the pawl to stop, remove the arch, cut a ramp using a fine wheel (square shoulder) on a bench grinder, reinstall. That's how I've done my own.

    My Alaska-based 180 liability is over double that. Total premium is $3900.00. My policy went down $1000.00 this year and the only difference I can think of is it's now in a hangar.
