We won't be. Unfortunately we are so busy we can't afford the time to attend any Fly-ins, even on this side of the pond at SNF or Oshkosh.

The only event I regularly attend is Reno to support the multiple people running SDS there. That's often my only "vacation" for the year.

We did have a rep at Aero in 2018 showing our ECUs at his booth with his Wankel engines but not sure if he will be there in 2020.

A number of folks wanted to see more basic information on the system so there is a new video up showing some system components, basic programming theory and examples of how values are changed with the new Design1 programmer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6CbQ86J3x0

Let me know if you have any specific things you want to see about the system.

Default Thanks!

A thank you to all the folks who've placed orders with us this month. Very much appreciated that you chose SDS.

With that, backlogs have built up a bit and we're getting out to over 2 weeks build time at the moment with that likely going to over 3 weeks with the number of quotes I did last week.

We'll do our best to fill these in a timely fashion.

Work is still proceeding on new software development but that will be slowed a bit due to all these orders.

A thing to note on the fuel pump modules- we don't tighten or seal the black pipe plugs when we send out modules. This is to allow customers to choose alternate plumbing solutions for restricted spaces. We usually put a note on the modules to that effect but may have omitted to do that in some cases.

Check these before you power up with fuel in the lines.

Just uploaded a short video showing the different options we offer on coil pack and fuel block mounting. Not too exciting but hopefully informative: https://youtu.be/_C2CDbznQVY

So I had a thought this morning while reading through the install documentation again (getting ready to put in the injector bosses)...

I noticed an RPM switch function in the ECU. I know it doesn't do anything on a Lycoming, but what about using that signal to automatically trigger the O2 sensor power?

With some form of latching relay (looks like the timer relay posted earlier would work) you could set it up on the RPM switch, and the first time the engine goes over some value (e.g. 2000RPM) it engages the relay and powers on the O2 sensor. It would then stay on until power off.




Also... is there a recommended lube for o-rings on the injectors and other parts? EZ-turn fuel lube?

The RPM switch might work for that. I would try to set it lower than 2000 RPM though.

I use regular engine oil on the O-rings or a high temp grease should be fine too.

You may have older instructions. Be sure to use Locktite 246 on the adapter threads.

Default New Page on Website

I just created a new page on our site showing some of the options we offer with our systems. Hopefully this provides some more clarity. This is a sub page, link can be accessed from the main Aircraft Page:

Nice

This is a really clean installation, pretty sure I will be copying most of it.

That's Marvin McGraw's RV-14. We share lots of his installation photos with customers on how to do a clean installation. He does super nice work!

Wish I had known about the through the baffle setup for the injector lines----looks like a cleaner setup than what I have. Three less lines on top of the engine.

Got any close up shots of the bracket holding the injector lines and the ignition wires? Looks like a slice of alum angle sandwiched between the Adel clamps.
