    I use the ifly 520 and also their Android version. Nothing better than having both units share a subscription and I can carry the android with me every day. They also have an Ipad version that can share the subscriptions. Despite comments ...

    BTW, I recently wrote a review of the Foretrex 401 on this site. Check out the comments section of the 401 picture in the photo gallery. While the 401 is a great backup device for longer NAV flights, (I use a 7in Nexus with Avare for those), it is ...

    The best GPS depends of course, depends on how you will use it. If you mostly keep within 50 or so miles of your home field, then any GPS with a pointer, including the ones you download to your smart phone for $5 will work perfectly well. If you ...

    Ipad w/WingX. I like the "radar altimeter" function that uses the GPS to tell you your current elevation over terrain. Not sure if this still holds true but it also seems like WingX comes out with new features and the Foreflight follows.

    Foreflight on your phone or ipad is wonderful GPS. I like that it shows you gas prices and weather. Consider using foreflight and get a cheap ebay gps just for backup

    I love my Garmin GPSmap 76CSx. It's no longer made, but you can buy them on e-Bay for $100-200. Features I like: 1) It's bright. 2) It's big enough to show the arrow pointing to the next waypoint. See picture at ...

    My experiences echo those of Paul and Roger, the safer envelope of flying conditions give you much greater enjoyment and peace of mind. A few months back, I flew in conditions the Revo with Sports wing thought quite fine, but two Airborne trikes ...

    jeff jolokai Just wondering if anyone knows what lead to the fatal crash of Craig Ewing here near his home base of Hastings Michigan on the 11th of this month? l had taken a ride with him, as well as did my g/f, last summer. l was looking forward to purchasing an intro-flight with him also for my two children. So tragic a loss. He was a good man as was well respected.

      Steve Beste I called the FAA about this last month (AFS-610) and was told that the NTSB had delegated the investigation to the FAA. My translation: the NTSB neither knows nor cares much about trikes. The local FAA FSDO was handling it. They brought the manufacturer into it (Larry Mednick), and had concluded their findings. They sent these and pictures to the NTSB. I suppose it will be a year before we get the official report from the NTSB. In the meantime, the FSDO gave the wreckage, their pictures, and their findings to Larry. As the manufacturer, it's up to him to decide what to do next. If there's a structural problem or a maintenance problem, he may issue a Service Directive. Obviously, the stakes for him are enormous here. We'll see what he does.

      Lee Schmitt Hi Jeff, according to the my research on the internet, he crashed in Casco, MI on August 11 at around 12pm. A google search of the weather at Casco on that day says overcast at 11, rain at 12 and thunderstorms at 1 pm. I believe the prevailing "rumor" is that he was scud running and struck an obstacle. I have no first hand knowledge.

    I agree with you Paul, I started out with an Airborne and Wizzard wing 16 years ago, I the changed the wing to a Streak and then again to a Streak 2 all the time trying to increase the "weather condition" flight envelope that I was "happy" to fly ...

    I use the similar ifly520 works great. I use the ifly 720 on another trike. Ditch the old Garmin 3 or donate it to your local aviation museum.
