Re: Oil Tank Fluid Level

John, You can use any of the available fuel quantity devices to measure oil level. I use a pressure transducer to measure fuel qty.

Re: AOA Pitot

Will a Dynon AOA Pitot work with a Sport HS EFIS running software 8i to give AOA information? If so, where are the calibration instructions?

Thanks

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

Greg & Jeff, It was great to see Stratux working with a GRT EFIS on the serial connection Saturday. Do I just need a USB to RS232 converter cable like this http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en/cable-assemblies/smart-cables/1574108?k=usb%20serial%20converter and connect the two units together...

Re: Grt Hx and efii wideband oxygen sensor display

Caleb, In theory the Hx analog inputs can display a 0-12 volt signal. The documentation gives instruction on how to use these for trim indicators. Perhaps Jeff will answer how to configure them for your specific purpose. I can't find any documentation on how to configure them in general. Originally ...

Harry, In the documentation section of the website under Sport Manuals there is a Sport Transition Training Guide. There is a lot of good information in there. I haven't watched them, but there are several video tutorials by Jerry Morris that should also be helpful. Be aware that the software in all...
