Never stated that I (or anyone) wants to fly IFR with a single display. Only wanted to find out the failure rate for the EFIS display and the ADAHRS.Read the October issue of Kitplanes magazine and get back to us if you still want to fly IMC with a single screen.
Both of which are roughly the same odds as this Jew being elected the next Pope. LOLThe odds of me having a heart attack inflight are greater than the odds of losing both of these displays simultaneously.
Touche. But given that there hasn't been a declarative Jew as Pope in around 2000 thousand years, the analogy still stands. The odds aren't great.The first Pope was a Jew, as was his mentor.
Kind of like the joke that was translated to me by a Polish friend about how John Paul II was a "fine Polish boy who was for many years the Pope and is now the country's main airport". Somehow, I think it loses some of its humor in the translation. LOLNeither one was a pilot, although that was not an impediment to one.
I don't feel so bad then. The rough layout of the electrical stuff for the Praetorian has five primary plus an emergency bus.Dan Thomas said:The G1000 airplanes have two batteries and SIX buses (older non-G1000 airplanes had two buses).
Guess who will be getting a LOT of PMs when I get to the electrical detail design phase. LOLDan Thomas said:I love working on electrical and electronic systems.
That's pretty impressive, for both of you. *tip of the hat*Pops said:When my youngest son was about 19 years old in the mid 80's, he built his own flux gate that also sensed the inclination of the magnetic field and fed to a computer that he designed and built, ( I designed and built the PC boards for him) and made a nav system much like a gps. Just had to tell it what hemisphere it was in.
The down side was the local mag field disturbances from iron deposit's.That's pretty impressive, for both of you. *tip of the hat*
At the risk of sounding like a suck-up, he did well because he was raised well.The down side was the local mag field disturbances from iron deposit's.
My son got interested in the stock market when he was 12 years old and the nav project got put on hold and forgot about when at 24 years old, a semi-truck tanker hit him head on while driving on the interstate at night and spend 2 years in hospitals with a head injury, after that his full effort went to the stock market. Did very, very good. Now 50 years old with 2 boys.
