YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. LOOKS GOOD. THE EXISTING RV10 TRAY IS 7 1/2" lONG by 5" deep. I GOT THIS INFO FROM VANS BATTERY THAT HE SELLS. IF YOU NEED A MORE PRECISE DIMENSION, I WILL NEED TO OPEN THE TAIL CONE AND MEASURE. YOUR CALL; NOT TOO MUCH WORK FOR THE BEST FIT. I SEND YOU N INSTALLATION PIC THAT I FOUND ON THE WEBSITE. I MAY HAVE TO SEND YOU THE PIC DIRECTLY TO YOU EMAIL UNLESS I FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT HERE.

Just measured mine.

7.50 x 5.063 with a rounded inside bend radius on the long sides only.

what do you guesstimate the size of the radius on the long side?

STEVE,

I MEASURED MINE AND I AM GETTING 5"X7" TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE RADIOS. DON'T KNOW IF THE FLANGES ARE BENT GIVING THE FRACTION MEASURED BY AZ_GILA (THANKS FOR TAKING YOUR DIMS AZ_GILA). I WILL SEND YOU A PIC TO YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL AFTER TGHIS EMAIL. THANKS.

don't worry about the radius at the bottom. we will take care of that with a chamfer for clearance. we want the measurements of the top edges. seems like we lost 0.5 inch going from 7.5 to 7.0.

Let me verify the 7.5"

I might have just assumed the previously stated dimension was correct and that I had it on the major markings on the ruler.

Gil, I'm trusting your first measurement. Print underway.

Going out in the heat to check the dimensions, :) but this pic shows the radius at the bottom of the tray -


az_gila 05-07-2018 06:22 PM

Steve, I just checked, it is 7.5 inches on the long dimension.

A 3/8 drill bit fits nicely inside the radius shown on the bottom of the long sides of the tray.

Steve Melton 05-07-2018 07:21 PM

thank you. we are good to go. the print is almost done. I've been out flying doing a check flight after my condition inspection. the only mod I made was to drill off the seat back hinge upper adjustment to allow the seat to go fully back. small change but I like it.
