One of the things that I've been putting off was finishing up the LED trim indicator wiring. One of the reasons for putting this off is because I wasn't sure if I was going to use the Dynon or LEDs to display the trim positions. I couldn't come up with a clever way to cover the LED holes so I decided to stick with them. Besides, so many of these things are around that I won't have a problem replacing them if/when they burn out. Notice the nice sticker on the aileron trim. Those stickers can be had for free from RAC. Just ask them for the stickers at an airshow or you can send them a self-addressed, stamped envelope and they'll send them to you. I need to steal a nut from someone for the elevator LED as I seem to have misplaced some of those. Once I get the nut on the back I'll put the elevator trim sticker on as well.
I also tied off the wires for the relays. Note that I simply tie-wrapped the d-sub shells together.
I also tied off all of the bus wires (again).
And here's an overview of the entire electrical system. There are only 5 wiring issues (to my knowledge) remaining before I go to the airport.
hall effect amp sensor
fuel flow transducer
The Dynon actually comes with a traditional ammeter shunt. It's heavy and very big and requires you to 'break' the wire at whatever point you want to install it. Apparantly the Dynon can use the GRT hall effect ammeter sensor but they 'broke' the support in the last firmware release. When a new firmware is released (presumably fixing the support) I'll purchase the GRT sensor.
