Dynon Skyview Update

I now have more information on the conversion from the old Dynon 180 to the new Skyview EFIS in the RV-12 airplane by Van's Aircraft. There is an avionics conversion kit that contained all the needed parts. It is not something that is ordered separately but will come with the finishing kit. Or in my case as I have the old finishing kit with the Avionics Kit. So the Avionic kit has been ordered. I expect it will be some time before I see the kit as there is a health back-order log in front of me. When I do receive it I will post pictures of what is included and detail Until then enjoy!

Update on Building the RV-12

It's been a while since I posted any building activity for the RV-12. I'm currently taking a break from building. Read, this term I'm taking Discrete math and learning a new computer language and it is killing me! Next term looks to be just as busy, but don't give up hope. This blog and the completion of the RV-12 is far from dead. So please hang in there it will get better. The siren call of the RV-12 is stronger than ever!

Van's Aircraft recently began shipping the new Avionic package featuring the Dynon Skyview. I talking with them and there are a few items that are changing in the airframe kits. For example the is now a AHARS mount in the tail cone above the static vent. I'm still unsure how they are handing these changes. As I get more information I will document these changes to the aircraft.
