Default Dynon ADHARS Installation?

Hi Folks, Looking to find someone that has installed the DYNON ADHARS. Iím a first time builder. I recently purchased a -7A Kit from an estate sale. Has a QB fuselage. Wings and empennage are mostly finished. Thinking I want to focus on the fuselage completion. I intend to use a Dynon quick panel, so I thought, now is a good time to work in the aft fuselage. Many Thanks, Ken

Default ADHRS

Hi, I mounted the ADAHRS in top of fuselage behind the bulkhead. And I installed Dynon Quick Panel. Everything seems to be working, but I'm not flying yet. Also if you want a backup you may want to add a remote compass. I ended up doing that later. Better to do it now while you are adding bracket for ADAHRS. Bracket for remote compass needs to be angled so it is orthogonal to the panel. ADAHRS doesn't. You can see it here.

There are a lot of ways to do this. I recommend you mind the guidance provided in the SkyView install manual on location. I tend to make a shelf between longerons (RV-8) or hang from the top of the fuselage (RV-10) and attached to the adjacent rib. One option if it makes sense for you mount is to get the Dynon plate so you can stack one ADHARS module on top to the other. If you plan on IFR at any point, recommend you get both the primary and secondary ADHARS modules.

Iíve never had a need for a remote compass for any SkyView install.

A common backup is the Dynon D6 and it needs a remote compass.

Sure - I had a single SkyView install with a D10A backup. The remote compass was not necessary but did make compass calibration for the D10A easier. Of note, just finishing an upgrade to this specific install that adds a second SkyView display. The D10A is being sold.

For a dual SkyView install the need for a backup is builder choice. I design with independent power for each display so a backup is not high on my list.

Ken,
I installed a quick panel in my -7 slider, and mounted the dual ADAHARS units piggyback in the center of the rear fuselage just aft of baggage bulkhead. I used 2 aluminum angles bolted to the longerons. There is no magnetic interference from the slider, but I did need to remake the shoulder harness cables out of stainless. Static ports are nearby, and system has worked very well. Search posts for various installation photos.

Carl, I read the manual and will do as the “Borg” say: “I will comply.” ��
