Re: SureFly Electronic Ignition

I installed a SureFly about a year ago and also experienced some sudden loss of power incidents. I replaced my fuel pump and changed all my plugs to fine wire but the problem persisted. Yesterday during a 3 hr. flight I had two "burgles", each lasting only a second or two but upon landing...

Re: G1000 Legacy & NXi upgrade program

Do you think the KAP would fly a hold post WAAS upgrade ? I didn’t try that It does not. Will it fly holds with GDU15 when it becomes available for GIA63W and KAP140 equipped DA42TDI, as DAI promised? My apologies on the previous post, I didn't realize we were talking about a DA42. As the owner of ...

By the way, I have two A600s and the power supplies. They are left over from converting to the Orions, if anyone needs some parts.

Re: What to do if strobe light is inop

Specifically, if the strobe light is inop but the front and back position lights work, can you just replace the strobe portion? Is the strobe a plug-in bulb similar to what you'd find in a car? Or do you have to replace the entire combined assembly even though the front/back position lights work? T...

Alternator slow to wake up

I was wondering if anybody has seen this before - 2004 DA40 with the IO-360. Alternator was refurbished over a year ago at annual. When I fire it up and switch on the alternator, the current sits at +1 and the voltage ~24+V for about 2 minutes and then suddenly springs to life - ~+15A and 28+V. I wa...
