Worried about an overvoltage event with my electrically dependant airplane, I followed the somewhat vague guidance in the March issue of Kitplanes and "modified" my ND alternator to accept an external regulator.

It doesn't work anymore.
Overvoltage problem solved!

wired in my radio to the flightcom intercom. radio works great on the headphone jack wired directly to it. when plugged into one of the jacks through the intercom the volume is low and basically no volume control. I think I may have wired the jacks incorrectly to the intercom, maybe a ground loop.

A while back, I cut/damaged the cord on my Lightspeeds so I sent them to the factory for repair. The repair charge was $100. They were returned (repaired) a few days ago and I unboxed them Saturday evening. New cord, and the battery pack even had fresh batteries. I was a happy camper. First thing Sunday, I went for some RV-10 transition training and managed to pinch/cut the new cord in the seat track before the first flight. So I'm back exactly where I started, except I'm down$100. I got zero use from my repaired cord.
I sent Lightspeed an e-mail asking if they had a discount repair program for stupid customers (and explained what I'd done).

They gave me an RMA to repair it for free as a courtesy.

I thought that was awfully nice.
