ronny Posted January 7, 2010 Share Posted January 7, 2010 did not mean to hijack Goatherders thread But anyway would like to hear from you how one feels about redundancy Redundancy is a very interesting topic. How far should one go ? Starting with two alternators, feeding two batteries, two ignition systems (one electronic and one mag??), double engine management instruments? Should one work with a double bus? Suppose a verticalpower unit such as VP200 is installed. Would you still build redundancy in here aswell, like having an emergency bypass if the VP200 cuts out? Double GPS for sure, I dont want to get lost. Double EFIS, Double radio's ? Transponder? Autopilot ( I guess not if this one fails it is allways possible to handfly ) But other stuff such as brakes, in this USAF report on the Long EZ, brakes were mentioned as a critical issue. So how about installing back up in this department ? back up back up back up. It is very much like backing up your IT system, it s all worthless, untill the system does fail and the back up saves your neck. But how far should one go ????? Ronny :D :D Did not build any redundancy into my marriage, one wife is more than enough !! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
