    RV-10 Front Seats

    I phoned a few times to try to get an idea on timeline for delivery. Nothing was committed to on the phone, but a few days later I received the email confirming shipment of the b/o parts.

    RV-10 Front Seats

    I was informed by Vans last week that all my backordered parts (excl AeroLED wingtips) were being shipped (incl seats). Wing & Finish kit order date was July 2021, shipping date April 2023.

    Time to claim: Backordered parts not being honoured

    Update: in fairness to Vans, I received a mail today offering to credit my account with the full amount paid for the AeroSun VXi Wingtips. Thanks for the mail Greg.

    Time to claim: Backordered parts not being honoured

    This morning I received a mail from AeroLEDs stating 'Vans is not transferring any deposit money or any payments to AeroLEDs so all customers that have previously ordered directly through Vans will now need to place a new order directly from AeroLEDs.' These parts form a small portion of the...

    radio stack cutout width

    Another q regarding cutout dimensions: the Garmin manuals state specific heights for the cutouts (I'm using option 3 - installed from back of panel), but those cutouts are for a single unit. Is there any deviation when stacking multiple units on top of each other. My radio stack will consist of...

    LEMO Wiring - duplicate shield termination

    Thanks all, I'll go ahead with the Garmin suggestion. For interest, here's my audio wiring. 18 shield terminations on the GMA245!!

    LEMO Wiring - duplicate shield termination

    Apologies I wasn't clear; if you look at the RHS of the diagram, you see Headset L and Headset R (pins 3 and 4) go into a 2 core shielded wire, with the shield floating on the LEMO side. However, the diagram calls for a shield drain wire to be created on the LEMO side, and run along the length...

    LEMO Wiring - duplicate shield termination

    I don't understand the Garmin wiring diagram for LEMO connectors; they show you running a separate wire from the wire shielding LEMO side, which in turn is terminated to the GMA back shell. This is in addition to the wire shield that is also terminated on the GMA back shell. What is the point of...

    Confused by lemo jack wiring

    Hi G3X, I am doing the LEMO wiring now with existing GA jacks, and am still confused about the Garmin diagram. It shows the Mic GA wiring with a floating shield at the GA jack, but not shield terminated at the GMA side. Is that intentional, and if so, why is it done that way?

    MGL Avionics N16 navigation receiver

    I'm thinking of the same setup; has anyone ascertained if this scenario is supported (2x GTR200, plus 1x N16, plus 1x Razor) into a G3X system?

    LCP and Quickbuild Kits

    Even if the full extent of the items that need to be replaced are not known, with the current advice indicating that, among many other items: - the spar in my flaps needs to be replaced - the 10 inboard ribs in my flaps need to be replaced - the spar in my aileron needs to be replaced - the nose...

    LCP and Quickbuild Kits

    Here's another thing that bugs me: I have untouched and boxed Ailerons and Flaps, and am now told I need to replace the Spars on both: A-1003-1L SPAR T3 .040 - Replacement Recommended A-1003-1R SPAR T3 .040 - Replacement Recommended FL-1003-L FLAP SPAR T3 .040 - Replacement Recommended...

    LCP and Quickbuild Kits

    It doesn't look like we're asking for anything unreasonable, or even unprecedented. In 2021 Vans had an issue with the QB vendor applying primer incorrectly, and their response was For category 1: Offer clients to take 'affected kits' + $2000 stipend, wait for new QB or change to SB For category...

    LCP and Quickbuild Kits

    Here is what I ordered (and paid $$$ for): 'QUICKBUILD WING panel approximately 80% completed at the factory. All parts primed before assembly. Fuel tanks finished, ailerons, flaps ready to install. Builder must rivet one wing skin, install wingtip, controls, fairings. Lights, fuel senders not...

    LCP and Quickbuild Kits

    Starting a new thread to discuss the needs and expectations of those of us that have QB kits that are impacted by the LCP issue. It seems there are 3 categories of impacted groups, namely 1) At Vans but not shipped 2) Shipped but not installed 3) Installed I fall into group 2), but have no...

    Continuous duty vs Crossed contactor

    Hi, I am planning a dual battery system that is intended to run both batteries as standard. I see BandC sell a Continuous Duty Contactor, and a Crossfeed Contactor. Which is appropriate for my setup, because the way I see it both batteries will be continuous duty and crossfeed. Links:

    Bridging EarthX Batteries

    My setup is intended to be similar to Dan's: 2x ETX900's working in parallel but with separate contractors providing a degree of resilience in case of 1 contactor failure. Normal operation will be to operate both together, thus both will have same/similar charges. The batteries will interconnect...

    Bridging EarthX Batteries

    Hi, I intend to install 2x EarthX ETX-900 batteries in my RV-10, and want to have separate contractors to allow the electrical system to be fed by Batt 1, Batt 2, or Both. When selecting Both, Battery 1 and Battery 2 will be effectively operating in parallel. EarthX notes that 'When connecting...
