Re: Refilling TKS

I tried the put the 10L container on top of the fuselage with a cloth underneath and a bulb siphon to fill the port. All was great until I overfilled the tank and had tks dripping from the plane for the next 10 minutes

Re: Would you buy another DA XX?

The fuel burn is better than advertised (7.2 gallons per hour per side at 75% rather than the book value of 7.4 while still delivering the advertised TAS). Try uploading your G1000 logs to flysto.net. They have a great section called "Cruise Performance" where it will compare your TAS,Fue...

Re: Built in O2 cylinder

My DA62 had a leaky regulator/valve assembly so a new cylinder and valve assembly was ordered on warranty. They ordered part number 4110-122-03-11.
