    3521s work pretty well. 352s not as well. The smaller ones can't be closed so my airplane was a home for insects until I replaced them.

    The hole diameter is critical to make them work well.

    I turned the old Inreach on this afternoon and what appears? A "premium" weather report that I requested yesterday. The latency in my unit is really, really bad. That alone may make an upgrade...

    Jerry,

    You get METAR and TAF info to your Inreach, right? I would be interested in that. One of these days Iridium will turn on their new constellation but their faster service will come with a...

    I noticed his motor weighs nearly double mine, and my motor is moved back and the airframe is extended. It isn't enough. Just my experience. Y'all can reflect on your own experiences.

    My Inreach Explorer won't support weather anymore but I always thought Inreach weather was crap so I can't see upgrading to access it. Has their weather service improved?

    Wing loading, power loading, and balance. That's what makes them work. That much weight on the nose will be a challenge. Extending the fuselage aft isn't enough to solve the problem.
