    Alternators /brackets/belts/bolts/pulleys etc. belong in a museum since we have solar panels and lithium-iron batteries.

    I have been using Lithium iron Batteries for a while now and I can tell you that for me there is NO GOING BACK to acid.

    Is it possible to add an additional generator/alternator on a Rotax 503 DCDI install?

    Alternators and generators should be headed to the museums now that we have flexible solar panels and LIFE-PO batteries. No more bolts, brackets , belts, regulators , adjustment arms that are always cracked.

    I have sent two requests to The FAA for STC the Starrtit kits but no answers yet.guess they are bussy with the 737 max thing.

    My thanks to you Victor and also to BJC and also to the many who have shown patience with me. I will indeed pursue these leads. stay tuned.

    Is there a source list of available FAA DER people ? where to find such a list? the FAA puts a jungle of stuff.

    Hi Victor; Nope no mods made after installing the first one on my Piper J4a w/ an a65 tapered shaft. Hi Ron, you may contact an old duffer from SanDiego who is installing [adapting] my gear/ring gear to a Franklin engine, the hole pattern is not SAE 1. John Collins,/cell/619 895 0973
