I have a D180 and a D100 each having their own remote compass. Can the remote compasses be mounted in the same location, one directly under the other or should they be mounted a certain distance apart?

There are pictures of installations around the interweb that have the two remote compasses stacked one on top of the other.
For example...

Not entirely convinced about the rigidity of the tie-wraps in the picture in the link, but you get the idea.

I have a D180 and D10A in my Glasair running their own remote compasses.  I have them mounted just aft of the baggage compartment on a shelf.  The two units are approximately 18" apart from one another and I've never had any issues with them.  Hope this helps.

Remote compasses and ADAHRS can be stacked. If they interfered with one another, they would interfere with themselves!

We actually sell a kit to stack ADAHRS units now.

Excellent, thanks everyone. This will save a lot of work not needing making another tray Smiley
