- Which airplanes does this work with?
- It was designed to be installed in the RV 7,8,9 and 10 but will most likely work with several other aircraft types. A small amount a modification might be required but the design is simple and can accommodate most aircraft designs
- Will it fit any pitot tube or just the Dynon pitot tube?
- The design accommodates the standard AN5812 mounting profile found on most pitot tubes.
- It looks yellow, is it painted? What is it coated with?
- The mount is made from aircraft grade aluminum and plated with a Gold Alodine(tm) to prevent corrosion and make it ready for paint. If you wish to polish it you can simply remove the finish with any aluminum polishing compound.
- How does it mount?
- Detailed mounting instructions are available through our website and are contained in the Pitot Tube Installation Guide. Dynon includes a cut-out template with each order.
- Is it welded? I heard there were problems with welded pitot mounts.
- Yes the assembly is welded. Dynon tested several different methods for attaching the parts together and using a large welded fillet was by far the best method.
- How much does it cost?
- $105, which includes the pitot mount, cut-out template and angle bracket.
