Re: Aspen Max Upgrade

My unit was installed with the latest software version. S/N 0115 is good to go.

Re: Aspen Max Upgrade

Bigphoto - Did you wire the Aspen Max’s audio output into the audio panel?

I had them do that while they had it in the shop. I like that it warns me +/- my target altitudes. If you have the terrain feature it announces collision warnings too.

Aspen Max Upgrade

I pre-purchased the Aspen Max upgrade 16 months ago. It was finally installed yesterday. I had a chance to fly it for about 2 1/2 hours and I’m very impressed. I also had the audio panel interface connected so altitude and terrain alerts come through the headsets.There are other features that give i...

Re: Oil Drops

Sounds like the oil breather tube doing what it does. I cut a 3/4” hole in the cap of a small Gator Aid bottle and hang a Remove Before Flight streamer on the bottle.

Re: Washing your XL2

Fuel Flow and Totalizer Built into FADEC

Learn something new every day. Today was my first ever use of the original Continental FADEC software to trouble-shoot the engine. Turns out I may have had a fouled spark plug that cleared itself on the last flight. So Could Not Duplicate and all's well. The big thing I learned is our FADEC system h...
