Cranking Her Over…


It’s been a fun week down at the hanger… Finally pulled her out, gave her a prime, and w/ 1/3 of a turn she came to life. Was exhilarating to be behind the yoke and feel the engine go. Sure is damn quiet with all that Selkirk foam. Way quieter than before.

So far it’s only ground runs to check eng performance, avionics, and the MVP-50. Talked about it a bit on another thread, but that MVP-50 is the cat’s ass. It’s gonna take me a bit to really get used to the information at my fingertips, but the combo is sure a mind-blower.

430 talks to the MVP, MVP takes the course/flight data and adds magic then sends info back to the 430. 430 talks to the 796 and populates all course data on the big screen. 796 sends touch screen freq data to the SL30 and populates automagically. 330 sends traffic info to the 430. Nutty!

(still more polishing to do…)
