Matt,

The last attempt came out as random characters. Can we try again? Much obliged.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
RV 8 listers, a few questions for your collective wisdom:


1. Did anyone wrap or otherwise protect the SCAT tubing that runs from the right wing NACA inlet to the fresh air vent in the rear seat?


2. How did you route the static air tubing from the bulkhead behind the rear seat to the instrument panel?


3. Did you install instruments or engine/ firewall forward first?


4. Anyone have a good or bad experience with an Advanced Flight Systems panel?


5. If you have rear seat rudder pedals, how did you route the cables around the rear footwells? Any trouble with getting smooth travel?


6. Has anyone used a Dynon AoA pitot tube and static air system with non-Dynon avionics?


7. Can I run coax cables for both VHF comm radios next to each other or do they need separation?


Thanks! Stay safe, sane, and healthy out there.


v/r,
P2

1. Did anyone wrap or otherwise protect the SCAT tubing that runs
from the right wing NACA inlet to the fresh air vent in the rear seat?

No, figured that the SCAT tubing was enough protection itself. It
isn't carrying fuel or electricity, so the worst that could happen is
it leaks air.

2. How did you route the static air tubing from the bulkhead behind
the rear seat to the instrument panel?

Didn't route from the back seat to the instrument panel. The plans
show a forward NACA intake ahead of the panel for the front seat vent.

3. Did you install instruments or engine/ firewall forward first? 

Did engine first and then instruments. Wouldn't have anything to hook
up the engine instruments otherwise.

None of these apply to my plane.

Coax is shielded so it should be ok. Checking Aeroelectric
connection I don't find anything recommending against it.

I don’t get to input to very many of these questions - here is one I can comfortably answer: Re question #7 running coax cables together - I have two coax cables (RG400 - the expensive gold stuff) running together to a Garmin 480 and an SL-30 - in nearly 11 years there has never been a problem - important thing is to terminate the cables correctly - if you’re not sure ask for help - and please don’t ask how i know that
