First post- please be gentle!

Built my RV way back in the dark ages (first flight 2004) using all Aeroelectric Connection stuff.  With over 1000 trouble-free hours, I'm a confirmed Nuckollhead.  Now neck-deep in a 701 and need to know who the go-to folks are today for stuff like wires & cables, contactors, relays, switches, forest-of-tabs etc.  I have  Mouser & MPJA catalogs coming (Digi-Key online only and major PITA!) and know about SteinAir and SkyGeek.  Who are we buying from these days?


THANKS from The PossumWorks in TN

Welcome, Mark!

SteinAir and B&C Specialty Products are my primary go-to for electrical - quality is great and I especially like the how-to videos on SteinAir's site.  Of course, I get a little stuff from Spruce, too.

I'm in TN, too!  My airstrip is TN66, about 12 n.m. south of KCSV.  I occasionally fly over to KMBT to visit my brother.  Feel free to come by and we can go flying in my STOL 750!  My strip is 100 x 2100 turf but if you came over in the RV, we could meet up at KCSV if necessary.

I like the "PossumWorks" moniker!  My brother calls my place the "Confederate Aeroplane Factory," but I guess that's too non-PC in this day and age! Guess I need to establish a "safe space" for any PC-sensitive visitors!   ;>)




As John stated - SteinAir and B&C!  In my recent experiences, they are always pleasant to talk with and provide insight on a variety of electrical topics methods and best practices. Re Bob Nuckoll... I don't see how you can beat the "Aeroelectric Connection" as a primer and reference for a homebuilder of aircraft.  Welcome to the Zenith side!


Mr Nuckolls is an active participant on the Matronics list server, in the Aeroelectrics list!  He has a great way of making his points and helping us "questioneers" actively participate in our education regarding the topics of query.

Some of the stuff is also available thru aircraft spruce. You can save a bit on shipping if you also have non electrical stuff to order.
