Default iPad question

Which nav program are you using in the iPad? I don't recognize it.

Thanks,

Hi Pierre, i am Alpha testing it for a local guy, he most probably will release it early in the new year. So I cant say too much at this stage, but it will be irrelevant for non South Africans. We battle in South Africa with decent aviation maps and aps on the ipad, he saw the gap and took it. I am just helping to sort out the bugs...maybe if it is really successfull will he expand but i am speculating...

Default Why do I think.....

That if South Africa ever develops a Space Program, Rudi will be involved in some form or fashion?

Honestly Rudy, I get a kick out seeing what you do and in the time that it takes to do it. Truly inspiring in what you build and the quality associated with it.

Default So started to put things in my panel today





I still need to add some backup instruments to the right of my screens. The hole in the radio stack is for my yet purchased GTN 750.

Default Thanks for posting!

I'm truly thankful for all of you who post these pictures of you panels as they are inspiring. However, for the first time today, browsing through them a fear came over me because I saw all the wiring behind the panel in one picture. I know I'll figure it out when I get there, but man it looks like a daunting task to get a panel that looks as good as what you all are posting! Really makes me appreciate the handiwork.

Ken,

Like everything else with building a RV-10, start at step 1 and then move on to step 2. If you dwell on the fact that there are thousands of steps, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Wiring is the same way. Start with your schematic and check of each wire as you run it. You'll find that you'll be done shortly.

One process that I highly recommend is to NOT rivet the Upper Fuselage Assembly when the plans call for it. It can be riveted way later. I set mine on the dining room table upside down to wire my harness. It made working on the harness very easy.

Default Yep

I echo Bob's advice...my building buddy on the -6A was petrified about wiring. I asked him one day, "Didn't your dad build houses for a living?"...."one brick at a time, no?"

He never again fretted the wiring...it all eventually worked and the smoke stayed in the wires!

Best,

Default N541RV is almost ready to go.




3 screen AFS system (two 4500's, one 3400 mfd)
AFS Pilot (tru-trak) autopilot
Dual GNS-430 W
PS eng audio panel
327 transponder


Fiberglass panel started life from Accuracy Avionics of many years ago but was completely reworked, added black powder coated aluminum masks that cover most of the instrument screws.

And of course, a full suite of TCW gear hidden behind the scenes.

Nice Bob! Love the fit and finish. The glare shield lip looks great too.
