    Anyone catch this video on YouTube? Gonna make some of you mad for sure. One glaring error is he features POA’s very own YouTube celebrity in his Grumman Traveler and calls it a Tiger. Sheeh- can’t get the basic facts straight. But it still out scores a Bo according to Mr. Doodles

    Mr. Doodles should have flown my Bonanza and it would be #1 over the ugly Mooney :) I am glad he had a Super Viking up at the top. Bonanza M35...jpeg

    I felt he short changed the comanche but I'm biased.

    Whoa. I thought he deleted the videos and started fresh. Was it a channel rename? LOL.

    Good on him. Has a damn stroke and can’t fly so he hits the beach with hotties. LOL. Clearly the man wasn’t going to let it slow him down!

    Never mind. Stupid YT made it a slide down action to “reveal” the stupid button now.

    Because you know, you want to hide useful things in user interfaces. It makes users happy and shows off your leet JavaScript skillzzz.

    LOL.

    He did make the mistake of the Traveler/Tiger, but other than that, I enjoyed his video. That's his opinion of the planes that give you the most value. Every single pilot on here may have a different opinion. But that's okay.

    He seems to have carved out two very good niches for himself on YT world.

    I've always said nothing gives bang for the buck in GA like a Mooney. Glad to see discerning individuals agree.

    To be fair, he said "and variants"

    Agreed. I did not catch that part when I watched it the first time. But he had a big caption that said Grumman Tiger. Then he talked about a cruise speed of 120 knots and a purchase price of $40,000. It's my understanding that a Tiger is several knots faster and quite a bit more expensive than that. But he still had a good video in my opinion. He does far better than I could ever do!

    Apparently he's only interested in 4 seat certified singles.

    Yeah, I don't think you can touch a Tiger on 40 large. I don't think the cruise speed is that far off, though.

    15 knots too low, I’d call that a fairly significant discrepancy.

    All his prices seemed low.
