Hi Mike,

A lot of the bare-bones functionality crosses over between the HXr and the HS/WS, such as loading approaches, entering flight plans & waypoints, airport/facilities info, and autopilot controls and indications. Your AHRS and power input wiring are also the same. So, if you have the time I think you'll probably get a lot out of it. You might walk away wanting to chop a bigger hole in your instrument panel, but that's OK.

We're really excited about Widget's presentation. If you've always wanted to know how the pros fly, Widget is the guy to ask. If there's one place I have to go all week, that's it. Well maybe Ben's presentation too... He is doing a presentation on GRT Avionics Installation Tips on Thursday, same time, same place. Oh, and I can't forget our date with the Beer Fairy!

Been wanting to do that for quite a while now, just hard to justify the $$$ when the old stuff is working just fine.

Besides, need the spare change for the S12

I tried to record Widget's forum, but it was an epic-fail on my part. He is working on a voice-over for his slides.

Thanks.

Please let us know when that is available. I have a feeling that I am using only a portion of what my HXr could be doing....

A huge THANK YOU to Widget for all his hard work on this! I finally got the slides converted to something usable for YouTube.

This is an hour and 40 minutes of pure knowledge from a guy who uses the HXr alot for IFR. It's split up into 5 parts on our YouTube channel. Here's the link to the playlist. Take notes!
