+1, I have the AOA sport version mounted on th top of my RV-8 glareshield. It too has been running great for 5+ years. I would consider an AOA to be a must have instrument for any RV.

I installed an AFS Sport AoA system in my Lancair and it has saved my bacon numerous times in the pattern. I would be very reluctant to fly without my AoA now.
