    Need new gyro's for my Beechcraft Sport. AH is bouncing around, DG needs resetting every 5 minutes. Thought about going all glass and junking the vacuum system, but the $10,000++ price tag scared me away.

    Anybody upgrade to glass and want to sell your good AH and DG, let me know.

    Thanks,

    How’s about the Aspen VFR unit?

    I like it, the Aspen E5 for $5000. But it requires a panel mounted WAAS GPS. Not many inexpensive choices that I know of. I would love to hear from others about this.

    Sounds like you are stuck..... try Texas Air Salvage or Wentorth for a used set. I’ve bought from Texas a few times, and Dawson in Arkansas. There is always eBay too, but that’s more of a dice roll than dealing with a legit company if it’s DOA.

    You try giving a shout out on beechaeroclub? I bet someone there has one or two rolling around in their shop.

    Before you spend a lot of money on the gyros, did you check the rest of the system (vacuum pump, regulators, filter)?
