New service bulletins from Vans

Who - Wrote earlier

RV-9A builder here breathing a sigh of relief that I'm not affected. I will definitely be keeping an eye out on these areas in the future.

Take it back now and get the GPS included unit, you will want to pick up your iPad and use it without the hassle of the extra receiver, later by all means get the extra receiver (with GLSNOSS) if you have trouble recieving a signal in the cockpit

In addition - you are so lucky over there, this side of the 'pond' we no longer have a Plymouth (EGHD) Airport, which closed last year due (so they say) it could not support modern commercial operations (runway too short for jet commercials - turbo-prop -8s being the biggest flown there) - the flyin...

AE FUEL GUARDIAN

Hi Guys

I'm thinking of fitting the 'AE Fuel Guardian' - what have you who have fitted this device used as their safety margin, and can you please give me a verticle measurement, rather than me playing around with the recommended water and tube

Battery Tray - which one?

Fibreglass tips - spanwise rib W-931

Hi Guys

Anyone got any tips (or photo's) of fitting the span-wise rib (W-931) to the -9 wing tip - do you use a 'POP' type rivet or 'buck' a solid rivet

EGT & CHT gauges

Hi Guys

When you fit your EGT & CHT gauges, wether steam or 'glass panel' do they need calibrating, I'm a bit naive on how these devices actually work.

Wing conduit

Hi CJ

I'm sorry, you have got me at 'cross purposes', - what I want to know is how people have cut into the black conduit, part way along part way along it's length, so as to get wiring out, for (as I said) the AP servo

Wing conduit

Hi CJ

Slow build wings, but now up to the QB state ie ready for the botton skins once internals and wiring completed - we put the holes in the ribs as per 'Vans's' option for the conduit

Wing conduit

Hi Guys

I'm using the 'standard' black convoluted conduit tubing for the wing wiring on out -9a: what's the best way to make a neat (non-abrading) hole part way down the length for routeing (for example) the wiring for the AP servo.
