Default RV-6A Victoria, TX 219PB

I purchased a RV-6A kit that was started by another builder. It is about at the quickbuild stage and I am plugging along with the build. So far it has been enjoyable and am having a good time. I am documenting my build at

My plans for this plane is to install a constant speed prop, full Dynon Skyview system with dual panels, autopilot, convert my O-360 to fuel injection and electronic ignition by EFii.

I have gotten with the EAA group here in Victoria, TX and found great help from fellow RV builders. This forum has already been helpful as well.

So with an all-electric airplane, mind telling us what your electrical system will look like? Multiple altenators? multiple batteries? Essential power bus?

I am thinking dual batteries and a single alternator but have not worked out all of the details. It will be a VFR ship and I am still researching. As far as the essential bus alternatives I am waiting on a new product that Dynon is working on. It is not published yet but I spoke with one of the designers about EFii's bus manager and he told me that they plan to announce a similar product early new year. That will fit my timing.
