Canít say Iíve had a problem BUT anything electrical does generate heat. And where its at there isnít a lot of air circulation.

Bought my 8, similar set up as some of the others. The PO wired a kill switch under the panel that must be one for the HOTAS start button to work (top left). I like not having a hot starter, so I am leaving this as is. I was concerned about the flaps switch getting bumped. It is a three position. Up springs forward, there is a neautral position in the middle and from there press down for flaps to extend, but is spring loaded back to neautral. So youíd have to go from up to neautral then bump down and hold to extend them.

Default Ignition points

I have been routing through my drawings and cannot find the layout for the ignition switch in my RV8. I have the standard ignition sold by Vans. Which terminals on the switch do I want to land the wires from the Infinity Stick Starter button?
