Red face Why not both plugs?

Just a silly question: why don't you install both types of plugs, LEMO and regular dual plugs? Suppose in the future yourself or a passenger brings in a conventional headset, or you want to sell your...

3. Doors sealing

I don't know how wide are the gaps, but the solution I have seen in a friend's hangar might work for you.

Talking RV-8 or -8A

My mission is similar to yours. I'd consider a discovery flight on a RV-8 or -8A. 2-seat tandem will likely be more comfortable for you and fast enough.

In favour of mogas

Most Rotax 912 operators in Brazil (and there are many here) prefer using Premium 91oct mogas instead of avgas. My own engine is relatively new at some 350 hours, so there's not much I can say, but I...

Just found the answer. GTR200 is not a direct replacement to SL40. It needs a new installation, per AircraftSpruce.

GTR200 vs SL40 harness and tray

.
Will the GTR200 fit in the same tray and connect to the same wiring already in place for the SL40? If affirmative, then I will consider replacing mine, though it is in good working order.:confused:
