Re: Wheeler 2.0

Kevin, I am having that dilemma about adding something to the aileron, or I was more recently planning on using/adding a Dynon autopilot actuator for the trim, they have a wings level feature, but if that doesn't solve the issue do you have picture of how you made yours ? Which side or both sides? d...

Re: airspeed indicator and flap torque tubes

Kevin, I am finally getting to that point, ran the wires for the Flap motor and am using a VPX pro for control, but am a bit stumped on how to set up the switch? Or what type to use, do you have a style of switch that works best? I flew the Cirrus recently and like there 1/2 and full flap switch, bu...

Re: Antenna Tips

I bought the Advanced Aircraft Electronics Transponder version. 6" long. Haven't figured out a good mounting location yet but. wished I had installed on in the wing box before I bolted in the wings. My other thought is below the Flap actuator. Where did you put your Static port?

Liquid cooling

Since I have a Liquid cooled motor I am installing a fan and heater core in the cabin, just like a car, would there still be a need to have an outside air source/air vent? How sealed up is the plane in flight? Typical/general of course.. are there any good ways to get fresh air into the cabin withou...

Body Fairings.. Seat Sliders.

Glassing up the upper and lower body fairings.... I have a basic flimsy set of the upper wing body fairings. Should I stiffen them some with foam? any ideas? Are there any tricks for laying up the lower? Should tool/molds be built to aid this process? The manuals are completely vague. It almost seem...

Compass location

Opinions wanted: Flat Magnetic indicator instrument? or a simple wet compass? Where is the best/better places to put the compass if the center window pillar isn't an option in the Wheeler... mounting it to the window like a rearview mirror in a car doesn't seem to a be spectacular idea? In panel? un...

Re: Antenna Tips

Any pictures of the antennas and their locations? Things are starting to close up for me. do you have to have the Transponder antenna mounted on an outside surface?
