  1. See, we had one lose its memory because they popped the alternator in flight by accident while reaching for the throttle. When they pushed the breaker back in, everything went haywire. After two returns to Dynon and them unable to replicate the issue, I grabbed another unit and compared line by config line, and found that CHT settings got scrambled. Seems that the Dynon EMS units' memory might have voltage issues.
  2. Huh that's another one that has randomly lost settings... Quesion Ed, did you have a voltage spike? Alternator issues?
  3. Oh I guarantee they won't allow home CO detectors. This was more for people that want to have CO detection in their aircraft *right now*. Those damn guardian CO2 detectors that are in Cirrus aircraft are 1,200 a piece and fail after a few years.
  4. You can buy Kiddie CO detectors from your local big box store. Example: https://www.kidde.com/home-safety/en/us/products/fire-safety/co-alarms/c3010d/
  5. Rotary keys are common in aviation. Once upon a time, they used to be just switches, but manufacturers wanted airplanes to be more like cars, so yokes, rotary keys, and other things were getting put in. I don't have an injected LS. Is there a lane A and lane B breaker? If so, use those instead of the key.
  6. The dynon units run linux. If there isn't a compatible driver in the linux kernel for whatever wifi provider you are plugging in, then it will not be detectable.
  7. That was the timeframe when FD Germany was having problems, and even simple modifications was getting ridiculous. I would ask again, I know you're E-LSA so you don't actually have to, but if you ever wanted to go back to S-LSA, you have the documentation to back up the move.
  8. How long ago did you ask this, Morden? I feel like the old flight design GmbH was asking for a bunch of unnecessary crap because they were financially in trouble. That said, you would be cutting holes in your leading edge or the bottom of your wing and possibly needing to add doublers, so it's not outside the realm of needing some work to create the instructions. It would also need flight testing to dial it in, but the nice thing is that dynon's calibration procedure is simple.
  9. Wire to an audio mixer like the intercom or radio if it has an audio in, after verifying they're safe to do so. Don't just wire to audio jacks, bad things are possible without mixing. Or just wire it to a compatible speaker! This is still common too. The other big benefit to getting audio from your EFIS (or HS34 if you have one) is there are als configurable warnings for engine instrumentation if you have the EMS too.
  10. That's really weird. I would be dumbfounded if the ASTM allowed that even from that era.
  11. I would get that looked at. You are supposed to have some kind of aural stall warning.
  12. In a pinch, we can reference the older service bulletin. Though I don't think there are any incompatible parts with oil on this list, there's still that tiny possibility. I remember being told the Mobil 1 Racing 4T was one of the best on the list, but pay attention to the notes. The recommendations change with operating conditions. Technically, this is R6, R7 was the last SI before rotax went to pushing aeroshell as the only oil that can grace their engines, but I don't have that revision. OLD si-912-016 operating fluids.pdf
  13. Audible alerts from the 496 goes through the music hookup of the intercom*. If you have a switch that says XM Audio / Aux Audio, switch it to XM. That's GPS audio. *The FD wiring diagrams do not have the audio system charted, and there will also be other sources of audio too. In my aircraft, I can hear everything. Be careful about this because you can cut off the aural warnings such as the stall horn.
  14. When you installed the modules, did you run the wires from the open 6th pin socket on the connectors to the starter solenoid control wire? They need the crank signal to charge the internal capacitors and trigger the "soft start" mode. There is also a corresponding flywheel with a different timing that goes with the softstart, otherwise you won't get the full effect. If your carbs are flooding, its not your floats, its the fuel float needle or corresponding seat. The floats press on the arm, which presses on the float arm, which presses on the needle. In the heavy maintenance manual, there is a carb section. In the carb section is a test you can perform to verify the seat and needles are sealing properly, where you turn the carb over and apply a few psi to the fuel intake port and see if it holds. Edit: still hearing that clicking noise. Maybe its because of my phone speaker.
