Matt helped tremendously at the hanger today, he almost single handedly ran the fuel lines from the right tank to the valves. He also helped install the red/white LED strip for the cockpit lighting. Mike Hilger of SteinAir was a great help with the Garmin setup. Today I brought online the transponder and com2
Last night Cheryl assisted drilling a couple gussets. Tonight I routed the Pitot lines and made final connections. Also installed the tank bracket bolts and safety wired them.
Cheryl and pulled wires from fuselage to wing and made several connections. This brought online the wing/roll servo, landing lights, pitot heat, outside air temp, magnetometer, and transponder.
Matt and I connected the OAT wiring, shortened the pilot stick so it didn’t hit the panel, did some other minor wiring, and installed the two main displays. Everything powered up!
Cut down the control stick to install the grips. I went with the Tosten CS8 grips that will control the trim, push to talk, autopilot disconnect, transponder ident, and radio flip flop.
Wired up the majority of the GAD27. This device controls the flaps and the landing light wigwag function.
GTN650 mounted, no wiring yet. Did fabricate two more plugs… Many more to go! GTN650 is the large touch screen at the top of the stack.
