GPS, Trim and EFIS

I mounted the GPS antenna in the nose today. It is mounted in the nosecone under a hatch. The fiberglass is transparent to radio waves so we can mount it down out of sight (and out of the airstream).

I also created a bracket for a Ray Allen position sensor to mount on the Strong pitch trim. I had to create a linkage to transfer the motion from the trim motor to the sensor and reduce the amount of travel. The sensor only has 1.2" of movement but the trim moves several inches. This took a lot longer than I expected.
