I have a sigtronics 2 place intercom so I don't have separate jacks . I just plug into it and at that's where they stay . I found I like it better on the floor against the seat support on the passenger side . The wires just come up and done . Plus for the price I got the headset and intercom for I can't complain , it's also nice having the 3.5mm jack to plug in to . It ended up being clearer then my old icom intercom ?
What I do is just pitch to get 6100-6200 on climb with my 582. That way I get great overall performance. My temps stay good and I get the best of both worlds. I was hoping to fly today and shoot some video of my dash during climb and cruise buuut my wife and I had our anniversary party / Halloween party last night and I'm way to tired to go out. Can't complain I've been with my wife for 11 years married 9 and have to of the best daughters you could ask for . Hopefully I'll go up this week and get some video of my dash during take off and cruise .
Mines on the floor tucked under the passenger as close to the middle as possible. I figure the wires coming almost directly up keeps them free and clear of everything. I had it in the back but got sick of reaching back to turn it on .
Wow that sucks . My tank was not covered at the end of it social it makes seeing a little better. I have a strip on top without fabric and epoxy over it but I believe it could be bigger . For now the leds are making it a little easier to see .
I like visiting snow but now all the metal in my body from way to many surgeries doesn't help. I had a couple plates and about 20 or so screws added to the list 3 years ago . I was at my brothers last year when the big snow storm came through and dropped the temps to the high teens. Wow my arm was killing me and I swear I could feel the metal freezing haha.
I used a super bright white for mine . It's not the greatest solution but it helps enough to where I can see my fuel slosh around. All I know is when I can't see the fuel from my seat I'm at 3 gallons left. I posted pictures somewhere on here but hell if I know where they are .
I just run the standard handheld antenna and a ptt off that . It works way better then my external antenna. When I was hooked up to my external it was always noisy . With the rubber handheld antenna it's really quiet and I can still hear about 35 miles away.
You never know . In my 20 years building and flying experimental aircraft there's a lot of stuff I've seen go wrong that shouldn't have . Not necessarily to my aircraft but others. I go by a thinking of if it doesn't need to be done don't do it unless you're willing to pay for the consequences. It's not my plane so it's not my business just putting my 2 cents worth.
I have a yaesu ft 310 in mine . I have the option of rechargeable battery or using AA batteries. I also have the cigarette lighter charger too . It seems to work great , I can hear my home airport 35 miles away using just the rubber ducky antenna. Here's the link , I only use the radio feature I haven't figured out the vor or nav stuff yet. http://www.yaesu.com/indexVS.cfm?cmd=DisplayProducts&ProdCatID=204&encProdID=927B36CBFD3D43A47096EC06CD910A48&DivisionID=2&isArchived=0
Regular clear packing tape on the top and bottom . make sure you deflect the stab each way while installing so it can attach in the middle . It's the one thing I've been meaning to do but keep forgetting.
Remember to check that rpm on climb . All my temps were high because it was pitched for climb and it made it run higher rpms for everything resulting in higher temps. Not sure if I'm making any sense but that's what happened before I re pitched for cruise.
