Default Update

Barry has devoted a lot of time lately to new software destined for the EM-6. He knocked down one of the major projects on that front yesterday and will start on the last major software project next week. That could take 2-4 months depending on our workload here.

After that, it's on to an improved variation of closed loop control we flight tested in an RV-10 back in 2008 so we're hoping that project won't take too long. This will apply mainly to operation on unleaded fuels- Mogas, Swift or the 100LL replacement in the future.

Our present order backlog has now stretched out to around 6 weeks for full systems. Most smaller and parts orders can go out within 1-2 weeks. This is the busiest we've ever been in 27 years. As a result, I'll be taking the occasional Wednesday off starting in May to avoid burnout. I still usually work one of the weekend days but the phone is off that day to maximize productivity.

Thanks to all the folks choosing SDS and thanks for your patience with these longer lead times.

There must be a lot of people building RV-10s as those now represent about 75% of our RV system orders!
