Even said any conflicts, please advise before popping the chute. Not sure what else I was supposed to do.
Hi, I am selling this exact knife.
As per the link, it's a standard model that has been modded to have a purple handle with a subtle fade to a green-blue towards the clip. There are some scratches on the blade and like two dings on the handle and clip, which were how they came to me. I hardly used this if at all, but the actual knife itself is amazing. It seriously closes amazingly well for what is a factory knife. I'm selling for the exact same price I bought it for, shipped to CONUS for $139.
It's a fairly little-known knife, so if you want to watch a video on it, here is a great one.
Even though this was over 2 years ago when I bought it, I'm still impressed by the mods that illestvillains did, and they're a great member of the community.
Thank you for your time.
Also, sorry to the guy who responded on a previous post about this, I didn’t get a notification until I checked this morning and couldn’t reply because I deleted the post
I found this community hugely helpful as I researched buying a plane, so I wanted to share my experience with buying my first plane last summer and owning it for the first ~9 months. I know this is not comprehensive, but it’s a start, and I’m happy to answer any questions!
I got my PPL in 2016 and my Instrument Rating in 2017, and had been renting since then. Last year, I had some life changes that meant I was likely to have a lot more opportunity for flying, and I wanted to make the jump to ownership. I had initially set myself a purchase budget of $150K, but as everyone says these things tend to creep…helped by the very low interest rates available last summer.
Settling on and buying a plane
My primary mission was <500 nm weekend trips in the Northeast with my wife, and shorter day trips with friends. I also intended to take 1-2 longer cross-country trips (e.g., to the West, or the Bahamas) each year.
I narrowed my list down early to a Cirrus SR-22, a Mooney M20, or a Cessna 182RG. My favorite from the outset was the Mooney, but after flying all three, I pretty quickly settled on the Cirrus. The combination of modernity, performance, safety features (I hugely value the parachute), and passenger comfort were the differentiating factors to me.
I eventually settled on a G2 SR-22, which seemed to strike the right balance of price and features. I shopped around a bit, got pretty good at reviewing logbooks, and ultimately ended up making a deal with the first seller I made an offer to. After some negotiation we settled on a price of $230K.
The plane was (and is!) in beautiful shape, with some upgrades. Beyond the typical specs of a G2 SR-22, the plane had upgraded nav/comms (2x GTN 650s), FlightStream 210 (wireless flight plan uploads and ADS-B In on Foreflight), GTX 330 Transponder with ADS-B in/out, non-FIKI TKS Anti-Ice, and STEC 55X autopilot (fully coupled incl. glidescope for ILS/LPV approaches). It had also been brilliantly maintained – the pre-buy turned up $500 of minor discrepancies, which the seller covered.
Finding a home
I live in Boston, and it was important to me not to have too long a commute to the airport (to make sure I actually got out to fly whenever I could), which basically left BVY, OWD, and BED as the options. Winters can be tough outdoors, but the hanger prices were still too rich for me: the immediately available options were shared hangars for $1K+ per month, and the ~1 year waitlist for a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been looking at planes on Trade-a-Plane and Controller, and I've noticed something that surprised me.
Early SR22s (~2001-2002) seem to be going for around $180,000. Meanwhile, a cessna 182 from around the same year won't be much cheaper than $250,000 (and often times much more expensive).
My understanding is that SR22s have more features and go quite a bit faster, so I was surprised to see 182s going for so much more. Anyone have a clue why that might be?
why do so many of y'all enter the pattern at maximum speed?
I live almost exactly 3 miles from my local county airport, 1 mile off the centerline, and throughout the pandemic, every time i hear plane over my house, i look on ForeFlight and see that it's either an SR-22 doing 175 kts at pattern-altitude, or an SR-20 doing 150 kts at TPA.
Almost without fail, in both instances, the plane in question will fly a 1-2 mile wide downwind, and finally turn base about 3-4 miles past the perch.
why? Why entering the pattern at max speed? why fly such a wide pattern? why carry all that excess energy in and then have to fly such a long and flat final?
EDIT: i regret asking this question. some of the people defending this behavior are showing such an appalling lack of understanding for things like risk management or basic aerodynamics that i'm genuinely worried that i share the skies with them.
Lots of feelers! Also have offset kit I'm willing to part with. Blues Jr and a few guitars if local to Detroit, Michigan-ish too!
Mainly just looking for: Chase Bliss Thermae (or others), Meris Mercury7 (or others), OBNE Dweller or Alpha Haunt, CIOKS power supply (DC7/DC10 probably), interested in various dirt pedals. Maybe Keeley Hydra.
Hello everyone, hope you are staying safe. I was recently given these controls when I purchased a Thrustmaster T500RS completely racing set up. I am not into flight sim, not does my desk have any room for this. All equipment hooked up and was recognized by my computer, but I did not tests its functionalities, don't know how to. They are a bit dirty in the picture, but have been cleaned and sanitized since (picture was taken when they were given to me). I would want a flight sim enthusiast to enjoy these more than I will, so I will take reasonable offers, I know these controls are almost 2,000 NEW, but they are used and due to the ambiguity surrounding their functionalities I will take offers above 500 for the set. Would prefer pickup in Los Angeles, but will ship at buyers expense! Thank you! Selling as a set or will piece out if the price is right :) Thank you!
There are some great Garmin G1000 videos and a great simulator available, but I can't find anything comparable for Avidyne Entegra - just pdf manuals.
I just got access to a Cirrus SR22-G2 with Entegra Avionics, but Avidyne doesn't offer any more support for these very common instruments. Irritating!
Does anyone have any good tutorial video links, or a simulator for the Entegra system?
In the toll, chapter 48, cirrus is explaining the plan to the small group of adventurers. He says that the dead are dead, and that they cannot be resurrected, because that would be "fundamentally bad". However, they choose some people to be implemented into the corpse. And from what I understand, these people are dead. And because the only way to die is to get killed by a scythe, it should be impossible to resurect them too ? I can't get other this problem and understand why they can be resurrected that way. If you have any guess, feel free to share.
Ciao a tutti per la m stagione estiva mi devo comprare una tenda nuova. Non ho un budget molto alto, purtroppo ho anche altre cose da comprare e devo cercare di tenermi basso con i prezzi... Il budget è di massimo 130 euro. Ho adocchiato i prodotti naturehike, che hanno una qualità prezzo molto buona e inoltre ormai sono stati testati. Parlando di tende, della marca naturehike di solito si sente parlare solo del modello Cloud up, mongar, tagar e vik. Non ho mai sentito parlare della cirrus che a me sembra una tenda molto valida.
Che dite voi? Secondo voi resiste meglio al vento della Cloud up e delle altre? Userei questa tenda in estate anche in alta montagna e non vorrei trovarmi a prendere acqua per colpa di un temporale che rompe la tenda. Che dite? È migliore della Cloud up in termini di resistenza al vento? Che mi dite invece della altre elencate come resistenza al vento? Grazie a tutti!!!
