Yet another change. The magnetometer is moving again, it started on top of the landing light, but the light had a steel back-shell. Then it went onto the top of the canard, but the offset torque tube and the EFIS display case are steel, so it had to move. I decided to put it in the strake outboard area, so we pulled the wings back off. What a hassle. I built a 0-incidence base for both sides, as I’ll be installing a backup EFIS later, and it’ll need a mag as well. See also below where we moved the compass to overhead. This is sub-optimal, as it’s hard to read here, but at least it’s in the plane if needed, I don’t expect to use it much.

One response to “BMA Magnotometer Relocation”
