    AP Servo Push Rod misalignment.

    I am nearly finished my RV6 which has a D100, D120 & a Dynon Autopilot . This has been a very slow project, way down in new Zealand, & I installed the Dynon AP hardware approx. 6 years ago to Dynon document 101046-001 Rev D. Page 7 of said document specifies that the Aileron servo is 5.875" aft...

    Dynon Pitot/AOA probe protection

    Folks, This may be the wrong forum for this subject, but I cant find a specific forum for the Dynon Pitot/AOA system. My question is whether users have found a suitable Pitot cover for this Pitot head, and if so where is it sourced from, & what make/model is it.  I see that AC Spruce sell a...

    Folks, I am wiring my FT-60 Red Cube flowmeter to my D120 EMS (0-320 RV6). I purchased my Dynon kit about 10 years ago & the terminals Dynon supplied have gotten mixed up with others. The only plugs that I have that mate fully with the plugs on the red cube are Vans ES421-0107 (male) &...

    Hi folks, Thanks for all your replies.  We have now swapped the pins and the cylinder readouts are for the correct cylinders, so all is well. However it is worth noting that the job was not as straightforward as I had hoped. For reasons that we never were able to explain the pins would not lock...

    I should add that the original EMS sensor kit was Dynon EMSKIT-L4C, Dynon Part No 100545-001, and my unit is a D120. Thanks Graham

    Folks, I am in the process of swapping these pins as recommended, but we found that the removed pins would not lock back into the Plug holes. So we decided to replace the plug body but to do this we need to fully & correctly identify the Plug body. Can Dynon please provide correct & complete...

    Hi, I have been testing my D120 EMS on my RV6 after hooking up all inputs. The Carb temp is reading 46deg C with the probe dangling in free air at about 16 deg C. (Sorry America, the rest of the world used Deg C!) I have a probe with two black & white wires, so iaw the Manual one is to...

    Hi I have connected up all 4 CHT & EGT probes of my D120 to my Lycoming 0-320 engine & found that I have got cylinders 1 & 4 EGT probes accidentally swapped. The wire labels must have gotten swapped at some stage. Is there some way that I can internally "fool" my D120 so that the EGT reading...

    Audion Alert

    Dynon Thanks for the prompt reply.  I see the following problems with your proposal. 1. I have my EFIS 3A CB (as recommended by the Instn Manual) on the Main Bus as it is permitted to be on during engine start. Can the AP components also be on during engine start?  2. The two CB...

    I am installing a D100, D120 & AP74 plus Dynon roll & pitch servos in my RV6. The D100 Manual page 3-10 recommends ONLY cpnnect the AP74 audio alert to the audio system, which is understandable.
