ADS-B installed

Posted on June 11, 2017 at 9:32pm 3 Comments

Installed a Skyguard ADS-B in and out system with AHRS
Install took two days, first day brackets and antennas.
Second day power, data, switch, breaker, cables.
Not a hard install, being a Amatuer radio operator probably helped. Don at Skyguard has great customer support.
Got an FAA report, all ok.
There are some great new products coming out there for experimental aircraft. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about doing your own install.
