With 1 shunt I would assume you "fail" the main alt by turning off the field and seeing if #2 is outputting amps into the system during run-up before takeoff.

I opted to use 2 shunts for my Plane Power/SD8 since my amps are nil below 1800rpm. Easy to wire in a second shunt and configure the G3X to display both Amps.
