Re: AK950 annunciator panel stolen
We had considered the Dynon second time around. very nice piece.
However decided against putting that much in 1 instrument right now.
We were fortunate that we paid less then 10grand for the BMA.Itwas
sent back to the company many many times for different repairs. It
never worked out of the box and like you sat for awhile before being
installed. We were the very first ones to buy one so was alot of
repairs and it was the guiny pig. On the last repair when it was the
motherboard (actually this was the 2nd box BMA sent us) Greg tried to
talk us into purchasing a new one for 14,000. we told him the first
2 did not work why should we buy another one that was not guaranteed
to work. The panel is very nice now and now we can get in the plane
and actually go somewhere. I dont know how many trips got cancelled
because we would go to leave and the efis would not work. I agree
the local police are no help at all. We finally got our replacement
from ameriking so cant wait to fly again.
