an ECI electronic tack in my Beech 33. I have had the fuse come
loose on a couple of occasions, causing at minimum a delay in the
flight. A few days ago, just after take off from KADS, I noticed
that once again the ECI tach had gone blank. I reached into the
seat back pocket, whipped out the trusty PROPTACH®,
put it on the velcro pad (which I had previously set up) on the
glare shield and pressed on, safe in the knowledge that I would
not over speed my engine..."
used my PROPTACH® for
the first time yesterday... I put the unit up on the glare shield
because I did not have any velcro. It was great! I found it much
easier to use than looking all the way across the panel where the
installed tach is. And no parallax. It felt like a HUD. Now if you
could just find a way to put a remote manifold pressure gauge up
on the glare shield too, you'd have another big winner..."
a PROPTACH® at Sun &
Fun in Lakeland, FL in April of 2004... Anyway, I thought I really
didn't need it but after using it I wouldn't go flying without it.
What a great gadget! My tach off??? Never!!! Or so I thought. When
PROPTACH® read 2400 RPM,
my tach read 2250 RPM!!! 'Nuff said! Thanks again..."
I love this thing! Bought one in Aug 1991 for my Mooney 2001. Used ever since. Still going strong after 22 years. Mooney's original mechanical tach is terribly innacurate... So what else is new? I would never fly without this. Well Done Guys!
