Default New ADAHRS/Magnetometer brackets for RV-7/9/10 builders

Van's has released and is now shipping a new mounting tray option for RV-7/9/10 builders who need a place to install common ADAHRS/magnetometer units from Dynon/AFS and Garmin.

These mounts provide the RV-7/9 or RV-10 builder a convenient, pre-fabricated option for installation of common AHARS/ADAHRS components from Dynon and Advanced Flight Systems (SV-ADAHRS-200/201) as well as the Garmin?s GMU-11 magnetometer. When a builder is not using one of these common components, holes may be drilled in the flat support face of the bracket to accommodate other devices, if/where necessary. Determination of suitability for use with other components is the responsibility of the builder. When installed, these brackets are attached in the upper tail cone. Stacking of two Dynon/AFS ADAHRS units is supported.

Detailed information can be found in the OP-60 optional plans drawings, located on the Van's web site at https://www.vansaircraft.com/service...visions/op-60/

The Van's part numbers for the kits are:
  • RV-7/9 ADAHRS bracket kit
  • RV-10 ADAHRS bracket kit

Default Thank you

Greg, I've put this off for literally a couple years because I didn't want to take the brain power to make my own design, while covered in dust from sanding and shaping the cabin top.

I know this is a simple "mod" for builders, but thank you for giving us an easy button...and at an affordable price $20.

Just placed my order.

Sold! I was just about to start one! So glad I waited now.

See you tomorrow! You must work upstairs...

I?m thinking of using this to mount a gmu-22 after cutting a hole in it.

Any Thoughts?

Default ADAHRS shelf

Amazing how much it looks like my home brew design.

The magnetometer seems to fit real nice under the tail fairing. I am going to be running a G5 backup so still need to plumb the static lines to the front ; so i will put my ahrds there.

I guess maybe this would be a good place for the gmu22 since it allows the elt antenna to be under the tail fairing.

Those are my thoughts. But now you got me thinking to put my GMU11 here. And elt antenna in the tail fairing.

Glad to hear it helps you ? and others ? with your build! Trust me I know how customizing brackets can take time - I?ve just about finally finished adapting a RV-14 fuel valve/pump/filter system to my RV-8A build while moving things around to make it all a bit easier to maintain over time. But that custom bracket stuff... let?s just say I?m nowhere near as smart as all the engineers I work with!!

We hope to keep brining new ideas like this to the RV world here and there.

I do but I?m the non-engineer who sits amongst the (much smarter and more talented) engineers! I?ll be embarking on a RV XC journey on Tuesday but do ask for me and say hi if I?m still at the office and haven?t left by the time you?re there!

Of course, a week after I finish installing my own homebrew ADAHRS mount...
