  2. Painting almost finished on my XLB
  3. I have wired up my com radio and everything works except when I connect the mic socket to the metal dash I get a hum( grounding feedback issue) ? If I hold the socket in the air, nothing I hum, If it touches the metal fuse then the hum. Somone told me to isolate the socket by heat shrinking the threaded part and fiber washers on each side of the nuts.. Never heard of this before.. Is that the normal installation or will it be just hiding an issue.

  5. Hi all I have a Garmin 495 and I know that if you have a Garmin SL 40 radio that you can transfer the radio freq and preload the radio from the gps. I have an icom 210 and it also has a RS-232 serial input. I connected the gps data out to the radio serial input but no luck. It would not interface. Has anyone done this successfully Chris.

    CH650 build cost

    Hi I am currently building 601XL / 650 Depending on the value of the dollar kit about $35,000 depending on options, Engine new $25- 30000 depends on what you want, Avionics. Depends again,$10-15000 on what you want. Paint and seats, up to,$10,000 So you have about a $80-90,000 brad new 2 seater, that you built and can maintain. Buy a second hand XL or 650 for around $50-60000 and you need a Lame to maintain. Chris Are you in for the build, the fly, both or just because it's cheaper to operate at first glance..?
  7. If you go to the Jabiru website they talk and show pictures of the new jab engine 2200 next gen. Chris
