It kind of feels like I'm saying "360 shopping days until Christmas" but here goes: We're in the final stretch for ADS-B Out. How are you doing?

    Ordered skyBeacon and adoptive fairing for 172N. Received skyBeacon but waiting on fairing.

    Thanks so much for sharing your info, Jack. I've been watching the SkyBeacon product and yours is the first to see installed. Can you take some pics and post on our forums? Thanks again!

    Finally received adaptive fairing for 172N and after some trimming to get it to fit wingtip and get mounting plane so it is close to the vertical and horizontal, got skyBeacon installed. Two things to consider:
    1. Make sure fairing is far enough forward relative to 6-32 threaded inserts in wingtip so the skyBeacon will line up with both the inserts and mounting face of fairing.
    2. And the threaded inserts on my wingtip had become set over time at an angle that was not perpendicular to the mounting face of fairing. I had to make allowances for that when drilling mounting holes in fairing and had to gently work inserts to line up with screws passing through SkyBeacon. I'll see what my IA thinks of my work. Hopefully I got photos properly attached.

    Look very nice! I think you did a great job. What was it like to configure? (Note: Don't forget to connect those wires, lol)

  • Yes, invalid pw...log in. Thanks

    Got wingtip installed and SkyBeacon configured. Configuration was straight forward and monitor page showed all numbers within parameters. Taking plane and paperwork(filled in Form 337 using uAvionix template) over to IA for sign-off and will have to wait for weather to cooperate for certification flight.
