I am leaning toward using panel mounted fuses for my 701 build based on simplicity, weight, and cost but all the holders require a D shaped mounting hole and the tools I can find to make said holes cost so much it all but negates the cost savings over using breakers. Any ideas?
It seems like a good idea to have fuses accessible in flight, but, in fifteen years of flying my 701 I’ve never had a fuse blow.
if one did blow in flight I probably wouldn’t replace it until I’d landed and figured out what the problem was.
I have a simple fuse block with automotive type fuses mounted on cockpit side of firewall.
Best of luck.
Thanks Don, I’ll look around there.
Shay I’ll be a day VFR flier only and that’s the kind of feedback that gives me confidence in moving forward with a fuse solution.
