Re: Siezed low-time neglected turbocharger

What you missed Robbie is that you do not have to do a thing! Awesome! So it IS free for current Turbo owners? Because I recall being told face to face the turbo was tested. I have previously asked for a refund. I was told no. I bought Service Bulletin parts and was assured that fixed the problem. ...

Re: Siezed low-time neglected turbocharger

Hmmm

Let me see if I got this right.

It has not been flown.

Re: Siezed low-time neglected turbocharger

...It is encouraging that Mark and the factory are looking at a cooling solution for the turbo as that is probably part of the problem, but I am speculating like the rest of us. As another disgruntled ex-turbo owner (mine is in a box in my garage now) I am going to comment on this. I am not at all ...

Re: Stratux to GRT Mini

There are power options for the Stratux, but it's either ships power via USB or a portable battery pack.

For ADS-B in flying day VFR in a Sonex, it is a great solution

I have a USB power source in my panel. I use that.

Re: Carb Ice Questions

Getting the thread back on track, I am also curious to hear of the experiences of others. I am well aware of what we have been told regarding carb ice and the AeroInjector, and I have a cowling installed. That does not mean I cannot get carb ice, and it certainly should not prevent the conversation....
