Re: Would you do it again?

Can’t complain, but I have never had in issue with the FADEC, or anything for that matter and I quite enjoy how it flies.

Re: CS prop

Sounds great, but at $20kAUD PLUS, it would be somewhat prohibitive. Shame, because sounds very promising.

Re: Tow Bar with wheel pants

Personally, I find it way more convenient to grab the prop at the root of the blades. I know they say don’t do that, but the acft is so light it’s easy to move about...bit more tricky in reverse but you can turn it on a dime so I drag it into the hanger forward and pirouette in situ.

Re: Fuel pressure issues causing Fadec Warning

Do you know the filter part number by chance? Is it TCM FILTER - FUEL 656077-1??

Re: Dual Garmin G5 Install

$8500 is insane. My LAME in Oz said it was very straight forward and would be half a day. The only caveat was the magnometer as he recommended that be installed in the wing tip, but his thoughts were that it would not be an issue for the Liberty given reasonable access. Why does it make any differen...

Re: RE: STATUS OF DISCOVERY AVIATION

I’d also be happy to forward what ever email is decided upon to owners on the Australian register, however I am still unclear what the implications are if they have folded and what we expect to achieve by writing to them? If they have succumb to financial pressures as I suspect they have, then what ...
