3 cents (hey everything is going up).
Hi Dave. I really take issue when I'm accused of a misdeed. I posted to help save the OP and others some cash.
Considering I gave first hand experience
stating "no problems", your point is moot. I have to assume you believe I'm lying? You can also find others using the same adapters with their Skyview systems.
Further, the USB wifi adapters are powered by regulated power provided by Skyview. Did you know that Dynon sells off the shelf wifi adapters with the same chipset? They just print their name on the case.
Finally, your concern is completely apples and oranges. It's in a similar stance as saying "My O-320 dropped a valve today, so you should avoid running that Rotax 912 until you pull the heads. After all, they're both engines!".
Except in the case of the wifi adapter vs a 12v-USB power adapter, they don't even provide the same function. Completely different.
Now, if you would like to provide evidence to your concern, instead of posting based on fear
, that might be more productive. I'm all ears. Just how will this adapter somehow back feed through Dynon's hardened internal voltage regulator's circuit? And just what are you seeing on the oscilloscope? Please post a snapshot. Tell me about your firsthand experience on this wifi adapter plugged into a dual Skyview system?
