Default Serial number

Excellent I'll pop by and see what else there is if it turns out to be a write off.

Serial number is 102591, don't know how old it is, the plane is 8 years old but not sure if it was new then.

Heard back again from Corey and I need to fly to find out if theres anything I can provoke it do do or not do. Tomorrow hopefully, he'd like a video if I can get it failing regularly.

I opened the unit, checked all connections, D connector soldering etc nothing obvious though.

Thanks, Clive

Like some other folks said, my screen also failed and had to upgrade to the Vizion. That was about two years ago and I think then the cost was about $800 for the upgrade. I also had them install the auto wings level button at the same time.

Default Flew today

So after finding all the hardware looking spot on, wiring, soldering, earths etc. Flew briefly with the unit in charge and it was working OK. The heading number displayed by the unit was 50 degrees off which I've not seen before but I need to give it a bit more time in the air and read the book again.
I'm off to Germany when I get back from SnFun so that'll be a good opportunity to watch what it's doing and note down it's characteristics.
Will have at look at SnFun and see what I can replace it with.
Regards, Clive
