Re: ADS-B options

Here is a link to a form to use to get your unit proved out once it is installed. This is not the right place to check for a rebate report. For those needing to do that it should be done from the rebate site.

After a closer look you are correct, I was looking at the general testing form. Anyway the Echo is still a great buy.

Paul,

The only Uavonix ADSB I see approved on the FAA site is the SkyBeacon. Where do you see the approval for Echo? It would be nice to get an additional $500.00 off.

Jim, I just checked the FAA rebate application site and it appears to me that the Echo will qualify. I know Uavionix also had a rebate program of their own but that is something different.


Re: ADS-B options

Jim Patillo
 

Hey Paul, nice to hear from you!

FAA Rebate on Uavonix Echo and GPS SkyFyx doesn’t apply. Manufacturer says rebate only applies to wingtip version.

Trying to find a good location to install components. Maybe directly behind seat back bulkhead. GPS antenna needs to face up. Transponder Wifi interrogation antenna needs to point down like transponder antenna.

Regards,

Jim

Nice Jim, did you get it installed and apply for the rebate yet? That is the unite I installed for my friend.

As I understand it the FAA can fine you but they have no way to collect the fine.  My plan, if I ever get fined is to just ignore it. 

Fly Safe,

There are a lot of good options out there now. If you have a legacy transponder Uavionix has some options for less than $1500. The Echo bundle which you can get into for under $1000 with the rebate. Their Skybecon is another option. Trig avionics has a bundle that includes TT22 mode S transponder 1090 ES, TN 72 GPS and TA 70 for under $2700 if panel space is limited this one is the best option. That is what I installed in my Avid also installed the Echo in a friend's plane and both were easy enough to install and program. The Echo is 978 UAT. WITH BOTH of these you will also need some way to see the ADSB in. Just having in will not allow you to see a lot of the traffic by the FAA's design. These are just the ones I have experience with there are many options out there. Just being able to fly into Rule air space is not the only reason to install ADSB. Being seen is top on my list. Just having the in only saved my bacon twice and convinced me to take the plunge and that happened out in the middle of nowhere. There are also some downsides, the FAA will know if you violate airspace, TFR's , NOAA sanctuaries (hope you guys on the coasts know about those, BIG fines) and plans on sending out tickets in the mail.

Here in the midwest it's pretty easy to stay out of rule airspace, so I don't plan to install ADS-B  out in my Q.  But I feel for you guys that don't have a choice!

Hi Phil,

I chose the Stratux ESG.  It replaced the AT150 that was in my panel for 20+ years.  Fit in the same hole.
2020 is getting real close!

Gainesville is about 50 minutes north of me.  It was a beautiful day tho 60F in the morning with light winds and no clouds, going up to 80F.  We fired up the Q200 and headed north.  Nice flight altho the ADS-B did find a guy coming straight at us but then he turned as I was turning... did he have ADS-B also?  I kinda bet he did.  Then up north away from all the class B and stuff a twin and shortly after a single flys by with no transponder.  Oh well, gota keep the eyes outside.  We get to KGNV and the tower there is going nuts.  So much traffic calling in and asking to land.  Twice the tower told everyone to stay out of the Class D.  They were having a bad day.  I've noticed the air traffic picking up as the economy improves.  Add to that a nice day and a Fly In event and you got a real mess brewing.  We circled the swamp a while and then decided to just go home.  2 hours and didn't even get to land anywhere!  The Q200 performed flawlessly.

Re: Luck of the Irish

Other than it goes up and then later comes down, probably not. Hey, I can even speak from personal experience now 😊 

 

That said, I always did enjoy flying my 235 Cherokee for a BFR. It had power to spare and was pretty light. Once, the instructor said, “let’s do a full power stall”. I just looked at him with a little smirk and said OK. Pulled the prop to fine, shoved the throttle all the way in and pulled the yoke back to the stops. After about a minute of climbing, he said “OK, I guess we will try it again at a lower power setting”

 

Cheers,

Jay

I did my BFR in a Cherokee 140 yesterday. Flies just like my Q-200.

 

You think? 

 

Got the Quickie out today and now all is Wright with the world.

It's been a long time, but I finally got my Q-200 airborne today!  The ice has finally melted (even though it snowed again last night).  I had ice blocking the hangar door as well as ice on the taxiway getting to the runway (the wide gear on the Q-200 can be a problem in the winter).  I didn't actually go anywhere, but it was just nice to get it back in the air.

 

We'll see how the next few months goes.  One of our runways is closing tomorrow for repaving.  To quote Roseanne Roseannadanna - "it's always something".

I took a BFR in a 140 once.  I almost aborted the takeoff because I thought we weren't accelerating right.  Nope, that's just all there is to a 140!!
