Preparation for glider installation

After years of changing the setup, wiring was a total mess. Therefor we decided  it was2016-03-13 12.57.03 time for spring cleaning. Everything out, and start from scratch. I spent last weekend preparing and has slowly started to lay out new wires, fuses and switches neatly arranged through a connecting panel between the battery, main switch and the electronics.

Our final cockpit layout will be as follows:2016-03-13 17.24.33

  • OpenVario 7″
  • Flarm
  • TRX-1090- ADS-B and Transponder-receiver for FLARM®
  • BT Bluetooth from (backup for PDA/Phone running XCSoar)
  • AIR COM – The next generation aircraft radio
  • AIR COM – VT01 transponder
  • Single display for radio/transponder

Next up is all pressure tubes.

To be continued….

Update – Stick remote is working 🙂

  1. Hi!

    Love your setup, it’s very inspiring! There are some radios that can be remote controlled by xcsoar, did you implement that for your Air Com?


    • Thanks Samuel! No, we haven´t considered that for the time being, but something to look in to when everything els is up and running I guess. GPS integration for automatic frequency change/standby on AirCom looks like a cool feature 🙂

      Happy flying!
