  1. Nope, nobody told me of any resister needed, not even Dynon. Anyways, I just hooked up an old VDO sender and set the setting to ONE and it works fine now.
  2. Yes I am sure it is not 30 psi. Roger tested it last week with a mechanical gauge and I tested it yesterday with another separate mechanical gauge and the readings were consistent.
  3. Has anyone else had any trouble getting the correct Oil pressure reading on your Dynon D120? My pressures were reading High so I ordered another Kavlico Sender to see if that would eliminate the problem but I still get the same readings. Upon further investigation, it turns out that the Dynon system was incorrectly configured in the OIL PRESSURE Menu and was set to #3 instead of #5 where it should be. This setting gave pretty normal readings however the Oil Pressure always read 30 psi when the engine was OFF. After setting the Dynon to the #5 option, the static pressure dropped to ZERO (good) but the running pressure only went to 30 psi. I tried this with BOTH Kavlico sending units (new one and old one) and thy were exactly the same. I even hooked up a mechanical oil Pressure gauge and everything reads perfect. I have been working with Roger on this , along with Dynon and we are all stumped. I have checked the wiring, checked the grounds and we cannot solve this problem. Dynon suggested I go back to the VDO sender and use option #1 to see if that works. Since they are not available locally, I ordered one and it will be a few more days until it arrives. Any Suggestions out there????

    FYI - It has been reported that Ruby's only has 2 rooms left in our "BLOCK".
  5. I posted this a few weeks ago but did not get any response so I am not sure it actually posted. I have purchased the uAvionix Echo and SkyFYX ADSB set and wanted to see photos of the install if anyone has installed these units. Thanks.
  6. IFly 740 question

    I will have to check this out on my next flight, but the Wind direction arrow / speed and TAS seemed to work but maybe the info is erroneous since the iFly740b wasn't hooked up to the Dynon. I think this will warrant a call to Dynan for details.
  7. Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    Since you have had both props, does the Sensenich prop perform better than the Neuform prop?
  8. IFly 740 question

    I installed the the 740b last month and tied it to the TruTrak but was unaware that it should be tired to the Dynon D100. What purpose would that serve?
  9. Does anyone have any Photos of the uAvionix Echo Install? Mine has arrived and I didn't want to reinvent the wheel here. I am looking for photos of the main unit, antenna installation and SKYFYX-EXT. I was planning on mounting the SKYFYX-EXT on the Glare Shield.... is that a good place? Will the new Antenna need a "ground Plane" or is the Carbon Fiber body an adequate conductor? Also, rumor or fact??? Drilling holes in the Carbon Fiber body is a "No No"
  10. Anyone using this ADSB System? How is it working for you? Easy install? I use the iFly 740b GPS https://www.pacificcoastavionics.com/products/3179-echouat.aspx
  11. Thanks everyone for your input on how to best Jack Up the plane for Tire and Brake removal. I Had this Hoyer in my hanger that I have used for lifting up other aircraft that I have owned and decided to try it ONE MORE TIME for this task and it worked like a charm. Since the gear is tapered as it gets closer to the Wheels, this tight "webbing" tightened itself as it was lifted up the Gear, preventing it from climbing up too far or close to the fuselage. Since the legs SPREAD on this Hoyer, I had plenty of space to work. Oh... and since I only lifted it a few inches, no fuel leaked out the vent , even with about 19 gallons remaining.
  12. Where is the location for this Hose to be clamped?... (for the newbie)
  13. Cant I just put some type of PLUG at the vent? If so, what could I use?
  14. Does anyone have any suggestions and/or photos of jacking up the plane for tire removal?
  15. iFly 740b Install

    Here are a few photos of the Install and 740B
