Landing light mounting template for CH-701 slat

Hello All. I'm looking to hear from all of you that have mounted LED landing/taxi lights in your 701 slats.I'm ready to cut the holes in the leading edge of the slats and want to make sure I get them in the correct location.Can anyone give me measurements of the hole size you used, and where it is located?A measurement from the trailing edge to the top of the cut out would be a great starting point. The distance inboard from the tip, as well as the size of the hole you cut in to the skin.I'm…See More

NEW PRODUCT! Custom panel overlays for Composite Designs switch / breaker panels

I am now making panel overlays that replace the factory labeling on the Composite Design panels with a new one-piece plate that is customized to your aircraft's switches and breakers.If your switch panel is covered in stickers or tape labels because the factory labels don't match your application, or it is getting that rental Cessna 172 worn out look, a custom overlay can make your panel look just like new again.The panel overlay is 1/64" thin, self adhesive, and can be stuck directly over the…See More

Rotax 912 radiator replacement

Hello Gang.So....at our last 701 annual, we found that one of the radiator threaded mounts had come loose from the side of the radiator. From the looks of it, the mounts are a small tube that is flared in to the side of the radiator frame and then threaded with a 6mm tap. it is not a real mechanical connection other that the tube being pressed in to the frame and then flared slightly (like a riv-nut) to hold it in place.The radiator is then mounted on 4 rubber isolation mounts that thread in to…See More

Instrument cut-out drill template.

Hello all.I know there are a few panel cut-out drill guide templates on the market but I've never liked the way they they work, or they are difficult to hold in place without them moving or being off level when you mark the holes.Not being one to settle for "good enough" I decided to build a better mousetrap.Here is the prototype I have designed. So far it works perfectly. It fits exactly in the panel cut outs, (both 3-1/8" and 2-1/4" on the same template). Alignment is easy, and the mounting…See More
