Default RV-10 Airhorn

Had a chance to wire up the airhorn I bought for the plane. Sorry for the shotty production quality, just thought it would be fun to have the kids help with the test. My daughter almost dropped her phone....

I think that's hilarious. But I don't understand why. To scare the deer off a runway? Wake up the NORDO J3's?

Default Installed a horn

I use it to honk a couple of times after yelling "clear prop" ------ also to say "hi" as I taxi past folks on the ground!

Not an airhorn, but loud enough.

I loved hearing the callouts from your "systems engineer" inside the airplane. "Check!"

I actually thought about installing one back in 2008 when I was finishing up my airplane. Just never got around to it. I can imagine having a bit of fun with it from time to time.
