Looking good AJ!! You've been working hard. I hope to be starting on my canopy in the next few weeks - I've chucked my job in so I can have a bit more time working on the 8. Talk soon, Hugh.

Thanks for the nice comments guys
I'm hoping to get her flying this summer (Dec) but maybe that's a bit optimistic. next step is to get my panel painted and try out the decalpro system

still waiting on the pitot Dan, but I'm only expecting it on Friday.

Cheers AJ

What's the reason for the 5 holes in the brace under the canopy rail?

Just wondering,

Mike

Default Side rail hole

Great question Mike, I asked myself that when I bought this project unfinnished 2 years ago. Maybe the previous builder had fat fingers??

The entire interior is actually for a RV7A because Ifound a great deal, but ir needed to be modified a fair amount.

Did my first set of electrical fuctional tests this weekend. I first spent a good ammount of time checking everything with a multimeter with the power off. I then powered the system (no avionics connected) and check everything to make sure the power was going where it should when it should.

Only ran into two issues, niether are hard to fix.
1: I had swapped the coil connections for the Bat and Start relays (woops), easy to correct.
2: There is a short in the pilot PTT circuit. I'll have to dig into that.

Otherwise everything worked as it should. I have more testing to do, but it is getting there.

I spent a few minutes wondering what the big "E" in the upper right corner of the EFIS meant. Was it a warning or connection problem...couldn't find anything in the manual. I then realized that the "E" is on the plastic screen protector...haha
