Default RV-12iS KAI update

lots of updates out for the 12iS

Section 1, 2, 3, 5 and 28 (rudder pedals mislabeled & F-1289C-L tubing length change)

Interesting things in Section 1:
  • There is a "Section 35GiS/U Premium Brake System" optional kit.
  • The "Section 41B: Canopy Glare Shield" is in grey (not available yet), but I'm sure I have the glare shield in my finishing kit (?)
  • New "Section 42PiS: GTN650" - so that's an option for E-LSA too i guess. gosh i wish IFR navigators didn't cost an arm and a leg.

A Grove magnesium wheels kit. Slightly lighter, better brake disc wear, etc.

occasionally, I'm pleased that I'm being a slow poke with my build.. this weight savings will compensate for all the primer that i've shot inside the plane

I assume it'll be possible to get the parts and install the Premium Brake System on older, non-iS RV-12s?

What are, or were the weight savings you mention?

“Premium Brake Kit”, I seem to have missed this. I don’t see it on any of the order forms, where can I get more info?
