Default Design1 Programmer

Barry has just been finishing the software to drive the new Design1 programmer features.

Several people had asked if the LOP feature could still be activated with an external switch so we made selectable menus in the programmer to either use an external switch or the on-keypad switch. The answer is now yes.



Here is the screen configured for LOP keypad activation.

We'll have a few production Design1 programmers assembled next week for those who've asked for them and they will start going out with new EM-5 orders mid-month.

Again, we appreciate the input on what features people desire on the 6th gen system.

Default Design1 Video

Short vid showing the first production Design1 programmer.

I'll do a more in depth one showing the new screens when I get more time. Busy filling as many orders as possible before year end.

Default Mounting?

Hey Ross, color me confused here. How does it mount to the panel/radio stack? I see the front side mounting holes but is it designed to sit behind the panel, on top of the panel or is there some sort of bezel that attaches it?

Never mind...its hard to see the raised bezel on the programmer but once I put my glasses on it showed up. :-)

The first three Design1 programmers shipped last week, 2 with new EM-5 orders and one to long time SDS customer and friend Rusty Crawford who is doing a panel upgrade on his 7A. Rusty is our high time Lycoming (Subaru previously) user with over 2000 flight hours who has given us lots of feedback and good ideas which have found their way into our new products.

Rusty, hope you will post a photo of your new panel.

I finally figured how to cut a nice, crisp round hole in Carbon Fiber to fit the old programmer in my panel.

Looks like I cut too soon.

Ditto. Fortunate for me it was just a AL blank...

Never buy anything until the last minute...something new or better always comes out...

I just received the new programmer, thing of beauty for sure.

And going to be much easier to mount in the panel than the round one was going to be.

I got mine a few weeks ago and I'm chomping at the bit to install it. I've got quite a bit of flying planned for the next couple weeks, and then I'm going to take my plane down for annual and start turning wrenches, including the SDS install.

When I got my programmer I couldn't help but hook it up on my dining room table, very nice indeed.
