RV-4 also uses the same motor, but different transmission configuration.

The RV-10 uses a different part #, not sure about the -14.

Of course, we have no way of testing in the actual airplane in cold weather here in Florida. We would be delighted if you would purchase one of these and take it with you on your next adventure to the far north (and west) and let us know! We suspect that it would operate just fine! Good question!
If you really want to get one of these out in the wild and get it abuse tested, send one to Vlad. He'll put more cycles on that thing in all conditions and in a quicker timeframe than anyone else possibly could.

Default RV-10

Any chance there will be one available for the RV-10?

Having an internal position sensor would be really nice...

Bob: Yes, we're looking at it now. I have an RV-10 customer here locally who is installing one of our relay boards--he's working on his flaps now. Stay tuned.

I looked at the installation instructions but they do not mention how many positions you can set or how to set them. Does it just have a position sensor that you hook up to your EFIS and hold the flap switch down and release it where you want flaps to be at?
