Good thought Mike. It really would be best to fix the problem than allow it to degrade. If I let this go by, probably get into habit of letting other small things go and soon many are out of whack.

No real trouble just a high reading from Dynon SV. It was reading about 41 lbs. and we put another meter in the system and it was read about 29 lbs. So I figured it was the transducer and not a true value. I am not sure if I will put on the transducer or just leave it alone and understand the differ...

I put some lights on the "post" that comes upward from the spar carry through. I like those that Bruce used. But mine work well too! There are various possibilities. Best to you

Guys, Only a thought, My 7A has both fuel senders that won't work. The fix is to remove the sender from the tank. I read about a builder that had to remove the fuel senders and they were installed with pro seal. It was a very tough job. He said that he had to heat the sealant with a heat gun to soft...

Just to give another view. True if you are IFR then maybe you might want the Garmin. I chose the Dynon not IFR, add 530 if need in future, probably not. I installed twin Skyviews, not a single problem. 25.6 hrs and counting. System works as directed. One very positive aspect of Dynon, support is sup...

In my situation, I bought two kits from another person, he transferred his kits to me at Van's, I ordered two more kits, and then when I began the registration process, Van's issued me the paper work to get the registration.

Capt. John and All, Thanks for the words of congrats. I did paint it in my paint booth I made in my barn. I would do it the same if I built another. To say that the paint is perfect would be a stretch. But I really did not scratch it during the assembly, the parts are light weight and easily moved. ...
