How to Use the AOA Tone
Hardware and Software
Sorry about the delayed response:
No, but best if it's relatively close to the longitudinal axis of the airplane. We are working on integrating the IMU, and that placement may be helpful. Lenny has the WiFi interface set up so that you tell the software what the box orientation is. You can mount it using screws if you attach the flanges to the box, or we've also been using the industrial strength velcro, which has worked well too.
Sounds good .

Thanks for the new blog Vac.
Yup, possible if you have a Dynon AOA probe on the airplane. However, that would mean it's pretty simple to add T connections to the existing 1/4" lines to connect directly to the Gen 2 box. More accurate than using the Dynon AOA signal. You can get by with a single curve calibration in an RV-3/4/6/7/8 if you don't have a flap position sensor. RV-9/10/14 need a flap position sensor because of the slotted flaps on those airplanes.
I see your point about hooking everything up.
can you tell me if it matters how it is mounted ?
looking forward to seeing your next write up, always like to hear the
new progress and how things are going.
