I just purchased a Viking 90 and will be updating my panel at the same time as the engine installation.What EMS you use or how do you monitor your Viking?  Does the ECU interface with the CANBUS on any of the EMS Systems?  Looking at either the Viking EMS (But then how do I setup HOBBS meter?) or a MGL Xtreme EMS with either connection to Viking CANBUS if possible or a RDAC XF.Any information on how you have setup your EMS is appreciated.  Thanks!BradSee More

Brad,

Let the games begin!  I picked up my 701 complete kit in Mexico on 19 Jan.  and have been working on it at a rather decent clip.  I built my rudder back in Oct. at a Zenith Workshop and made my order the same day.  I've just completed the horiz. stabilizer and elevator assembly (with electric trim) so the tail-feathers are essentially complete.  I'm currently finishing up the slats for the port wing, but the Weather Gods have finally caught up with me and I'm reduced to doing way-out work on small pieces in my home office.

I've ordered a Viking 110, but there are a few 701's with VW conversions out there. 

Drop a line if I can be of any assistance.
