Default WTB: 3 1/8" electric turn coodrinator

The Falcon turn coordinator in my RV-9A gave up the ghost recently and the time has come to replace or rebuild it. I figured my first stop should be to reach out to the VAF community. Anyone done a panel upgrade recently that is looking to sell a gently used 3 1/8" electric turn coordinator? Thanks!

Have you considered a TruTrak ADI?? http://www.trutrakap.com/product/adi/

They come up here every now and then, might be something to look at.

Jeff there is no such thing as "genlty used TC". I am on my 5th instrument and I had them all from a garage fixed to a brand new unit (shelved some years though) and they don't last long. The shortest lifespan was 20 hours for new and the longest 650h for the instrument I assembled from three donors. Get yourself a solid state you save money in long run.

Thanks for all of the replies. I am taking the suggestion about solid state equipment being a good choice going forward, which brings about the conversation about going entirely glass. I appreciate the advice and the two offers. I think its time to start saving for a panel upgrade in the future.
VAF is the best forum out there!
