IO-540-D RV-10 Engine Performance Table?

Does anyone have an Engine Performance Table for the standard IO-540-D4A5 used for RV-10? I have been using a table that someone sent me a while back, but I don't know where it came from and can't trace all the values to Lyco Operator Manual values. This sort of thing isn't useful if you don't trust...

Re: HX Radar

From a human factors standpoint I'll admit that the "NONE" selection option meant "don't show anything" to me. My inclination was therefore to totally ignore it as non-interesting setting. However, it now seems like that was totally what I wanted as far as seeing visual indicatio...

Re: HX Radar

Thanks! I have working Navworx serial port and "Traffic" icon displayed. I just wasn't sure what to do from there. The addition info you supplied should really help. I did find METARs under the MAP->NEAREST->METARs screen, but I'd sure rather see color coded info displayed on the MAP scree...

Re: HX screens flash a black screen

I have a 3 HX setup running v5d. I've seen screen flashes a couple of times while in flight, but only on any screen running the PFD. It's momentary and always refreshes right after. No crashes or reboots. My S/N are all in the 90's.

Regards,
Jay

Re: Reset fuel totalizer reminder

My reminder to adjust fuel levels when refueling is to place pink paperclip on the dash. Really. All this technology and I'm reduced to a visual aid. How ironic...

HX Radar

Hi... I have a three screen HX setup in my RV-10. No XM weather, but I have Navworx ADS-B In/Out. Is there anything I need to do in order to see ADS-B weather? Is the HX Radar feature enabled only if XM is present?

Thanks,
Jay

Re: EIS Manuals

Hi, It would be great if there was a table of hardware-software version/rev vs feature support. I recently tried to hook up a second RPM sensor only to discover that the second input was non-functional in my hardware. Had to send the unit back for rework/update. The only way to know that it didn't h...

Re: Manual updates?

OSH would be a great place to have training. Then maybe post to youtube for the masses... Ditto on the analog pull downs. There's a lot of tribal knowledge that's not captured in the manuals at present or is so scattered about that it's tough to find. Been there and done that on the writing side... ...
