Default Dynon Pitot Tube Cutout Drawing

Does anyone have a CAD drawing of the cutout for a Dynon pitot tube? I bought mine from private party and it didn't have the cutout template. Plus, I'm preparing a waterjet cutting job and would like to add a router template for the cutout.

Thanks!

Holger

The cutout would be for the mast or mount. The Dynon pitot doesn't come with the mount. Safeair and Gretz provide compatible mounts. I used the Safeair mast and it came with the paper template. No need to water jet this. Just drill a couple of holes and use a file or dremel. Ten minute job at most.

Thanks, Bruce. I didn't know the template wasn't supplied with the unit from Dynon.

I know, it's easy enough to hand cut the skin, but I have space on the plate I'm sending to the waterjet shop, so I'd get a free router template out of it. With that, it's a 2-min-can't-mess-up job.

Actually, Dynon sells a pitot mount kit now (about a year now) and it comes with a template:

Here's the template:

Thank you, Dynon Support! Good to know. Coincidentally, your pitot tube fit exactly into a hang glider downtube I had laying around, and I'm going to use that. You don't happen to have the template available as PDF, do you?

EDIT Oh, just seeing your link to the PDF - PERFECT! Thank you so much!

Thanks,

Holger
