Re: Utility of second G3X?

My previous plane had the G3X units side by side. Loved it. My Tsi has the conventional G3X over each seat. Although I miss the closeness, I do need the GNX375 and prop controls close by, and that was not possible with the G3X screens side by side. I normally set the mfd to traffic and moving map, a...

Re: Kit configuration: Parachute pros and cons?

Re: 912iS Engine Pre-Heat / Cold Start

I use a twin hornet. Long, flexible cord, and you just set it in the cowling with a blanket over the top. Very happy with it.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone on this board. May a quick build kit appear under your tree this morning. Or that delayed part stuck on a cargo ship for the last 3 months. :)

We are a fortunate group to have the ability to build and fly this wonderful little airplane.

Merry Christmas!
