Steve Melton on VAF designed this fuel drain valve fairing and sent me the file. The boys got a new printer last week so Matt is printing a couple of these!
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.
I’ve been doing tons of wiring, so far I have 5 Garmin plugs fabricated many more to go…
James Below came over with my modified panel. I was then able to start installing the center radio stack and auto pilot. Looks incredible!
From bottom to top is the GMC 307 autopilot controller, the GMA 245 audio panel, and the GTR 200 com radio.
Installed the oil cooler and ducting, still need to order the oil lines. Also installed the bus manager and did some other wiring.
Nothing too exciting tonight, completed the rudder cable linkage. I now have two control surfaces operable, the elevators and the rudder.
