I am installing a Dynon Skyview and will need to mount the ADAHRS sensor soon.  Does anyone have pictures of how they mounted a unit?  Also any pictures of how they ran wires from the panel to the engine compartment, antenna mounts, etc.?

Ed,

I realize you're building a 750, but if it's any help, in my CH650 I installed the ADAHRS unit just ahead of the fuselage hatch on the pilot's side. See a pic at
http://home.comcast.net/~davegardea/panel_%26_wiring.html#24
This was in close proximity to the static ports which I placed on the each side of the fuselage immediately below the 650 baggage deck.

After more than 80 flight hours, this ADAHRS location had worked well and I feel it's in an easily accessible location to be serviced when needed in the future.

Regards,
Dave

Dave,

When I click on your site, it says it is temporarily unavailable?

Ed,

My apologies .. I had included a link to my old site. Here's the correct link:

Dave,

Thanks for some great pictures.  I will steal every idea I can!!  Looks like you did a great job.  What did you use to make this website?

Ed

Ed, thanks for the nice comment on my site .. I used iWeb on my Mac. It's a site building tool that easily lets you add pics.

Victor,

Thanks for a great shot!  I am not to the point of running tubes to the box yet, but what are the 2 that go into the T?  Looking at this, I wish I had not put my baggage back in yet.  Working through the hatch is a real pain!

Ed

Hi Ed.   The white tubes connect the static ports to the ADAHRS and run forward to the back up instruments.    The longerons provide a great protected conduit for tubing and wiring.

ran the 406 ELT antenna cable in the empinage before riveting down the top skin.   The reinforcement plate/ access hatch allows convenient access for maintenance and removal of antenna after the fact.  I just used my 3 1/4" instrument hole punch and a piece of scrap 0.050" plate.    Possible to run cable inside empinage afterwards but need skinny kid to fit through the hatch.    The com antenna is accessible through rear baggage compartment.

Nice. Is there anything under the skin besides the nutplates?

I wish I had done this earlier, but I guess I learn something everyday!
