Default Boomtype

I am still very, very curious for your answers to Tim's question #42: what about the Dynon ..532 boom type probe?
I myself am just working to this stadium. Haven't build the engine in yet, but I didn't buy the RV-pitot tube for this reason.
It sure saves a lot of plumbing and trouble. The boom works as a stall warning as well, so I intend not to bother for that one either when building the wings

I have to disagree.

If a full wing mounted pitot/static/AOA probe is used, you have three lines that have to be disconnected/reconnected, and never get mixed up.

The standard pitot works very well and never has to be disconnected.... the standard static lines are short runs to the ADAHRS, and that leaves only one line for the AOA to be dealt with if a wing is ever removed.
Any opinions expressed in this message are my own and not necessarily those of my employer.

Default Proposed AOA settings

Under the "Audio Setup" I was thinking of changing the :

"AOA Volume" from 90% to 60%
"AOA Tone Start" from 50% to 70%
"AOA Tone is Solid" from 70% to 90%
"Inhibit AO Below Airspeed" tone from 20 to 40 KTS
"Alert Volume" from 100 to 85

See anything wrong with this?
