Default AFS5800

Anyone equipped with AFS5800s in the Delmarva? I'd like to get a gander at the hardware, maybe take a few real world measurements if thatd be ok. Dont need to fly it but would like to do a look see/lessons learned from someone who is currently flying it. Running hard on my panel build, and was gonna wait for Sun n Fun but things are moving faster than I thought.

Thanks for any help.


Wow 60 hits an noone using this. How about 5600 or 5500 screens?

Default 5600T Pirep

Installed mine this summer and have been flying a lot to get familiar with the system ------ hangar neighbors, and friends have 5500T and 5600Ts. Without exception, everyone really like theirs.

The extra buttons and knobs provide more flexibility than the "menu driven" systems I have flown with. Customer support is outstanding, and, as an added benefit, all of the Dynon accessories work with the AFS stuff.
