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
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.
