Re: Flight Report KMDH - KTOP & return

I have a Skyview, but I use Seattle Avionics for my raster charts. They are compatible and reside on a thumb drive that is plugged into the Skyview. Skyview reads the charts directly from the thumb drive. You do not need to upload them to the Skyview system.

Hi Jay

I was curious, trying to find someone who uses the Pocket FMS update system on their Dynon to understand how good it is and if I need to have a raster map or not. Its not many weeks ago I too said "what is a raster map" ?

Do we have anyone on the list who has a skyview and uses the Pocket FMS update service ?

Hi Richard,


The D180 does not have a nav screen. They did not add that until Skyview.

    Its the base map that the rest of the layers get laid over.

    Do you have a Nav screen on your Dynon ? If so does it get all the input from the Garmin ?

What is a raster map?  I use my old Garmn GPS map connected to the D180 and I also use Avare on a cheap tablet powered by a Stratux.

Here's a picture of my setup.

Thanks Sam, Interesting report. Makes me glad I fitted a second pump when I read it. Got any findings yet ?

Do you use a raster map on your Dynon, what Nav data do you use ? Pocket FMS ?

I made a little trip to Topeka this weekend to see the grands. Nice time was had by all. Non-eventful weather and the winds were okay in both directions, but sometimes I do wish I had cabin heat.  As long as the sun is shining in lower temps, I'm good. My old Dynon is showing everything in the green.

My route of flight takes me just over the lower end of Whiteman AFB, which is the Air Force's main B-2 bomber base.  Sometimes I'll see a billion dollar bomber on the ramp, like today.  The top of the control zone is 3,500 feet and I was heading east at 5,500. It always seems a bit strange to fly over Whiteman, feels like maybe I'm being watched?

As you may know I have an electric fuel injection system and have two Walbro pumps to deliver fuel at 40 psi. When I fly West, I'm on pump #1 and East I use pump #2. Both pumps are on for takeoff and landing phases. About an hour from home I noticed my mixture getting very lean.  As I was fooling with the mixture I suddenly got a LOW FUEL PRESSURE warning. I flipped on pump #1 and things went back to normal. Not believing what I was seeing I tried turning #1 off, and the engine just about died.  

Okay, I get the hint. Turn #1 back on and #2 off, just in case it is spewing parts. Rest of the flight was uneventful and I didn't touch a thing until I got on the ground. Looks like I'll be ordering a new pump and a new 10 micron fuel filter.

All in all a fun day.
