Audio TIVO... interesting idea. How are you planning to do this?

Peter,

I have a small embedded linux controller board that contains an audio codec, several MB of RAM, and several MB of flash. I should be able to interface to the RX channel from the radio, and continuously record audio to RAM, tossing out the older data on the fly. When you miss something, you could press a button and capture the last x seconds of audio and play it back.

I'm still getting up to speed on the controller board, so this is a ways off right now. Exactly where I tap into the receiver for the audio input and the audio out I do not know yet.

Tracy.

Default Another One

I was just working on my plane and noticed my new aileron boot holders, so add that to the list:

- aileron control tube boots

BTW, I made my holders from the circular cutouts from the tank end rib construction. Perfect size!

One more I don't see, but consider essential in my -9A is a sliding sunshade - the one that fixes to the center rail above your head - also fixes to the tip-up canopies as well. In addition, i think I will also install one of the forward tip up canopy devices to me slider - getting bulky items in the rear is a pain, and additional access would be helpful.

Default extra fuel

I know of an RV10 that has two full sets of fuel tanks in each wing. One inboard and one outboard with a little bit of space in between. I was thinking of doing the same thing only using half a tank on the outboards. I was also thinking of using andair's four tank fuel valve so I could burn off tip fuel first and then the mains similar to the Cherokee 235.

To solve the "how to run the fuel line problem" I figure on running the outboard line through the inboard tank. I might find out I'm all wet here, but it looks good on paper!!!

You will need four fuel gagues.

Default Airstopper tubes?

Bill,

What are airstopper tubes? A modification to the vent system?

Actually just a GRT EFIS/MFD and one ECI duel gauge for the tips.

You can get by with two gauges with a switch under each to select either tip or main. My Air Tractor has one gauge with a selector switch from the factory.

If you like to baffle your flying audience with dials go with four gages. But two gages and a switch or one gage and a switch as Pierre says is the best way to go. Less weight, less cost, less to go wrong and less complications.
