Hi Bruce.
No writing for Kitplanes since my Lancair mods article. Lost it in post-landing
Incident after 350 glorious hour in the
Sky.

How would you guys recommend me supporting the fuselage while removing the engine without the tail on?  Should I simply just put the tailback on for the meantime and remove it again once the engine is back on?

Will do.....but is that the PVC structure to hold the tail?  If so, I built that last summer and the tail is on it now.  If something else then I will check the blog.

Re: GPS Dimension

 

A single 10.5 landscape screen will just fit yop to bottom with decent edge distance. I have a cad drawing based on the one from the q-list archives. It fits inside the edges well although slightly inboard. Copilot side would have a panel mount transponder with ads-b in/out for traffic. Lit rocker switches for all systems, (probably aveo rockers) as well as the Aveo Andromeda wing tip lights for nav and strobe. Landing light location and type undecided at this time. The G3x radios would be installed behind the seat back bulkhead. Which makes ample room for header tank up front.

Jim,
Not sure I’ve had it long enough to test it thoroughly.  I have it under the glare screen so it usually doesn’t see direct sunlight.  All it takes to remove it from the harness is push one button and you can “put it where the sun don’t shine”.  (Don’t take that personally).

I assume the 496 power cord is the same as the 296.  If so the 660 is a total different animal.  But with only 3 wires to hook up it is a piece of cake.

I spoke with Trio and the guy said the back d rate in the Trio will look at the baud rate of the gps and automatically go to that baud rate if my unit is new enough.  If not he said I could send it in and they could change it for me.  It’s just a firm ware thing. 
So I can use and drive the two different auto pilots with the same Aera 660 gps.  I just need a hard wire harness and the 3 wires hooked up to gps signal, positive and ground.
No reason to wait if the 296 is quickly becoming obsolete.

Hi Dave,

I thought I would wait until the dust settled but you did an admirable job saving the airframe. Thats one of the reasons I don't like taking long trips and possibly stranded several states away from home. Did you have to clean the seats? Ha Ha. I've been there and done that and it was very scary. I dead sticked into Livermore a few years ago during one of our airshows. It puckered my butt real good. Are you putting a Revmaster back in it or exploring options?

Dave I wish you a quick return to service. Sorry to hear about your mishap.

Best,
Jim
