Default Gemini ADI Pirep

Has anyone received their new Gemini ADI?

If so, how about a Pirep. Photos of it would be a welcome bonus!

Regards,

Lucas mentioned on another forum that five were ready to go out the door today.

Now we just need to get the PFD shipping.

Saw it today. Very light and good looking that's the PIREP I got. No, it's not mine.

As Bob mentioned, due to another snafu with parts we can't build any more at this time. I've shipped out four of them, and not all may be members on this board. We're expecting the parts shipment hopefully by the end of this week or next and then we will be able to get started with production quantities.

I have one installed.



So far I have made one flight with it. WX has kept me grounded or I would have made others.

From my one flight experience, it's awesome. You can hold altitude extremely easily with this instrument. It's almost too easy. The pitch display is waaay more sensitive than you get from a traditional attitude display. This level of sensitivity allows you to hold altitude easily. Forget AOA and airpseed -- if the horizon of the instrument is on the line, you're holding altitude. Period.

I hope to have more useful information to report after future flights.

Please keep me posted as you test fly it further.
I would really appreciate it.
