Something very simple with a single sensor DIY is OK -
2. ### Battery Temp monitor

Very low current drain - Mini X EFIS and MGL v10 comm radio. LED strobe and LED nav light - battery is mounted in a wing locker set up with plenty of air circulation. Voltmeter on the comm radio so far never has shown less than 13 volts. I bought the dedicated SHORAI charger for the battery - it...
3. ### Battery Temp monitor

I have installed a Lithium Iron battery that is very light weight but my concern is that it is mounted in the wing and from what I have heard is that these batteries sometimes overheat. It would be nice to know if the battery is overheating before my wing comes off ? I have no generator or...
4. ### Vacuum venturi

You can get a larger venturi - 4 inch - and then you could use a regulator for the 2 inches you need. That should work or just try the 4 inch venturi without the regulator to see if it is in the 2 inch range.
5. ### Battery temp monitor

Does anyone know of an inexpensive battery temperature indicator that can be purchased? I have an wood wing aircraft with a battery compartment in the wing. The battery is a light weight lithium iron battery that I would like some way to know if the battery is hot before my wing comes off. I...

I have been doing research on this subject as I plan on buying a GRT Mini X and connecting with the TRIG transponder to have ADS B output on the 1090 Frequency. From what I read the position information for now - until 2020 - for EXPERIMENTAL aircraft only does not have to be a certified unit -...

11. ### Auto fuel STC and Ethanol

There are many threats to aviation with the use of auto gas mixed with ethanol. I suggest you concern yourself with this extensive testing and report European aviation safety agency...
12. ### windshield fabrication

A simple flat wrap type windshield with minor bends. Low speed aircraft - less than 110 knots max speed - I will try some fairly thin Lexan - without heat - on a warm Arizona day.
13. ### Right angle nutplate

Thank you - B and B had the exact item I needed
14. ### Right angle nutplate

I have been searching for a supplier of a right angle nut plate and have not been able to find a retail supplier? I need 7 of something like a MF6001-08 which has a floating self lock nut plate - 8/32 threads. Apparently these are not popular anymore as Aircraft Spruce discontinued them. I can...
15. ### windshield fabrication

I am rebuilding an antique experimental plane and the original windshield is missing so I need to fabricate a new one. I tried Lexan and used a heat gun to bend the material and now the vision through it is distorted. Any ideas as to what material to use and how to bend it without distorting the...
