Electronics fitted. From top to bottom:

- Space for Jeti MGPS
- Jeti REX2 satellite receiver
- Dual Jeti 5800 Power Ion batteries
- Jeti MVARIO vario and expander for MGPS and MSPEED telemetry sensors
- Jeti Central Box 200
- Jeti REX2 satellite receiver
- Powerbox iGyro 3e

Left hand side has Florian Schambeck 150Ncm protection units for tow release and gear servos and a Jeti Single Bec for brake servo protection.

Not in picture on the left hand side is a Powerbox GPS that provides a speed correction factor for the iGyro.

I thought I'd try the iGyro to help with aerotow and solo slope launches. I've had a few close calls solo launching my ASW20 at the slope when wind gusts tilt the wings before I can get my fingers on the controls. The iGyro has gains for each control axis but I'll probably only use roll and yaw correction.

The iGyro only has the signal leads connected to preserve the Jeti Central box servo shorting function. The iGyro gets its power from the Gain and the spare Elevator 2 (backup) inputs.

Hi Phil, Superb installation. Don't fly it, hang it on your lounge wall as an example of modern art. :D Ter.

Haha!

Not sure it would fit. It certainly fills the lounge.

Hi Roo,

It might be this Sunday - waiting for confirmation from AEB.

Otherwise it could be Middle Wallop in April.
