Default Well...

Well, I was going to stay out of it...but...that last comment about poor design and materials was it.

I have been very happy, overall, with my EFII experience.

I was an early customer of the System32, and although there was some frustration at times with the delivery of the new hardware, my experience with Robert has been excellent. I have NEVER had an issue contacting him or him replying to my questions or concerns. When I found that the new harness would not work well in the place of the Legacy, due to the way I routed it, Robert made it right. He has answered questions and phone calls at times when virtually no other company would have even been available. I have NO complaints with his customer service.

As far as the design and materials go, I have seen nothing in my System 32 that is less than top quality materials and construction. I had no issues with my fuel pump mount or anything else, for that matter. The ECU's are beautiful, the new harness as well.

My only frustration was the delivery schedule...but that was rectified as well.

Keep doing what you are doing, Robert!

Question Question about 30-day lead time.

Thankfully it's here now, fully functional and shipping. Now we have to scale to meet the need. Hopefully we can work back to the 30 day time frame this year. Our production runs 7 days a week, if we had 9 days a week, we would gladly use them.

Mr. Paisley,

On July 8th you said you'd begun production of the 2nd batch of 50 System 32 components that will "clear out all the back orders" (Including mine) and those 50 are still in process. When will you finish that run?

I ask because it looks like close to 90 days for you to complete a run of 50 systems. Given that, how will you get to a 30-day lead time for someone who places a new order with you sometime this year? That seems to indicate you're going to more than double your rate of output in a short period of time. (Less than 100 days left in 2019.) I'm no manufacturing expert, but that sounds hard to believe. I'm sure you've heard the maxim that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof". Is there anything you can tell us to make that seem doable?

Data Point(s):

1) Ordered (and paid) for 1/2 system in August--received all items I needed to facilitate build process immediately (all items received within 3 weeks);
2) Ordered (and paid) for remaining system in September--received items needed (as needed/requested) and final system items received last week.

I have NO ISSUES WRT delivery or service!!

Bottom line: IMHO be reasonable/prudent/rational/pragmatic and communicate your needs and the response will be as expected.

Default EFII on my RV10

I have 913 Hobbs on my RV10 which took to the sky 09.15.2015 using Robs original system. I finally received my new system 32. I cannot imagine going mags and mechanical FI, and I have always received good and most times excellent service from Robert.

I am very happy with this system.

I have 110 hours on my System32 and it runs great. My hanger buddies are jealous of engine starting after 3 or 4 blades every time.

Default FWIW

I always received prompt and informative replies by Robert either by mail or phone.
Top notch !!
AerosportPower built my engine and installed the System 32 items that goes on it.
The rest of items are currently being installed/connected.
High quality parts all over.

One detail though, I made a small bracket and installed a small spring to counter just enough the one in the supplied throttle body that closes the butterfly if no cable is linked on.
This way, if (and yes, probabilities are low) the throttle cable or its hardware breaks or disconnects in flight, the throttle will be WOT instead of idle...
Aviation world v.s. automotive world...

Needless to say, the spring will be checked regularly!!!
