Wink Dynon Skyviews 10" models

Those are 10'' Skyviews...Look carefully at the picture and you will see that each screen has 3 screws per side to hold them in place...The 7'' in my -4 has only 2 per side...

Ray,
What's under the hood? Do you have the SJ plenum to go with the cowl? My 6A has the SJ cowl and plenum - along with AFP fuel injection...I needed turbo vents to go LOP with that setup... Let me know if you have questions on that....

Ralph, Ray does have the SJ plenum. IO360, AirFlow FM150, Vertterman trombone exhaust, 1 Pmag, and several other goodies.

Nice looking bird, Raymo! Love the looks of that SJ cowl.

Here is my slow built RV-7A. I got it flying back in October 2015, and just got it painted this month. It only took 15 yrs to get to this point, but it is such a joy to fly that the time was worth it! I assisted John Stahr with the painting where I could, and had him add airbrushed art to the wingtips, and the tail which is of Yosemite and Mt Hood to reflect on my other hobby, mountaineering. Fuel stops are taking a bit longer now

Very nice panel!
They are 10" screens. I cut the panel myself and each has about 1/8" at the top to clear the left and right supports behind the panel.

Under the hood is a O-360-A4M upgraded, as Tom pointed out, with AFP fuel injection and a P-Mag. Once I am comfortable with this setup, I may go to dual P-Mags or a SDS CPI to replace the left, non-impulse mag.

I am having some trouble with CHT on the #4 cylinder but so far manageable. I've already backed off the timing a bit on the P-Mag a couple degrees to manage temps. LOP ops are not a problem as long as I stay out of the power (<23 MP). We'll see how it does in the summer heat here in southern Georgia. The SJ plenum seals the top of the baffles well but there is room for improvement around the cylinders.

What a joy to fly!


James,

That is a beautiful paint job!
