Re: Path to ADS-B & WAAS for older DA40s

Regarding your second question Bryan: As discussed in a previous thread on this forum, the FS210 is compatible with the GTX345R. As I’ve had this combination since the winter of 2016 and most likely I am not the only legacy G1000 / Diamond owner who is flying with this setup. Though this may requir...

Re: Da40 Gtx 335R install

Do any members happen to know whether the da40's that dont have a gdl69 still have the shelf that is used for the antenna in the tailcone? I don't remember the specific details on the "shelf" but IIRC, for my GTX345 install they said they installed a GPS antenna in the position that the GDL69 anten...

Or you have a slipping belt caused by a broken or cracked alternator bracket. I just had this
Thanks. Did you also have the annunciator light but with no indications of volts/amps issues or did your volts or amps also show a problem?

Alternator Annunciator but Volts/Amps normal

On the past two flights, I've had the red "Alternator" annunciator appear on the G1000 PFD but the amps and volts remain normal with no discernible dips or oscillations. (28.5V & ~+11A) The issue first occurred on a flight in cruise. No circuit breakers were tripped and cycling the alternator master...

Re: Corked Nose Wheel

that is the standard nose wheel pant. I will make a fin for that fin if I can get one to laser scan. The rear of this fin is much slimmer than the earlier models and requires a redesign of the mounting lip. If you can part with your wheel pant for a few days I will scan your pant and return it to y...

Re: Corked Nose Wheel

Haha. For sure. Just excited and hopeful. Bret sent me a fin for a trial run on my 2004 and it was quite a bit different in curvature of the fairing and mounting screw placement. I would have offered up my fairing for drafting but I have a partner in the plane and we fly a lot and didn’t want to go...

Re: Replacement of rubber t-profile connecting wing and hull

Does anyone know if there is a procedure anywhere for replacing this wing gap? I need to have mine replaced and have the part from diamond in now. I thought it would be a simple process but from this thread it looks like there may be quite a bit of labor involved. Is there a specification for the gl...

Re: Airventure parking DA40

Perry,
I'll be at Airventure camping in GAC. Also, I have gone the past 3 years with wheel pants on and had no issues. I did do the boards under the mains last year as Dave suggested and it was definitely easier to pull out when departing.
