I saw an early preliminary design. It really wasn't applicable to my setup which will incorporate VPX and have dual alternators and batteries. I've come up with a what I think is a good design but am trying to get it onto a decent CAD format so that I can ask for a critique.

I have a general layout I can send you for a dual alternator setup. Will email that Tuesday to you.

Default Fuel Flow Measurement

We get the question about fuel flow transducers when using our EFI fairly frequently.

If you order the FF option, you can negate the old Red Cube or FloScan mechanical transducers entirely.

We just have a one wire hookup directly out of the ECU to your engine monitor.

Be sure not to use one of the old transducers on the return line from the regulator as the restriction may cause very high fuel pressures which can't be properly regulated.

This old tech stuff is not applicable with EFI any more and you don't need to spend all that money on these parts or the plumbing for them.

Default Wiring Harnesses

A few people have asked if the engine builders have to use the wiring harnesses we supply for the aircraft to run the engines on their test stands or dynos.

Aero Sport has harnesses to run both 4 and 6 cylinder Lycomings. Barrett has harnesses to run 6 cylinder engines at this time that we supplied. This will leave your airframe harnesses intact, without FWF connectors installed, so you can tailor lengths and have easier firewall and bulkhead passage.

The engine builders will use your crank sensors but we supply a second connector with the kits so you can cut the test one off, route and tailor lengths in your airframe, then install the new connector.

Ross;
Do you have any SWAG on when you will be ready to start shipping systems with the new computers.

At least a year from now. Pretty huge task with the new CPU, display and features to develop software for. We also won't release anything until it's been well tested and flown for some time.

Not officially, but you can learn more at two tech talks:

Marvin McGraw will have his award winning RV14 at Osh too and you can ask him about his SDS EFI installation.

I have a list of people that want to see the installation. I plan to remove the cowling one day for those interested PM a phone number.

I am currently waiting out the weather in Waukesha WI. We plan to arrive Sunday midday and stay all week in HBC. The tail number is N829MS

I should hopefully be arriving Friday! I would love to meet up with some other EFI folks to chat it up.
