Dynon,
Any news on when you'll be releasing documentation on installation and operation of the new Yaw Damper announced a few weeks ago. Also what is the timeframe for product ready to ship.

Thanks
Gary

The two supported airframes will be the RV-10 and RV-14. The tiller arm / bow will be available from us shortly (within a week or maybe a bit more, probably?), with the remainder of the airframe installation kit available from Van's. Documentation is still being updated.

Dynon - Do you foresee any difficulty in retrofitting the kit to other RVs, such as an RV-8?

The 10 and 14 have cables down the center of the cabin, which allows for easy installation. Planes with cables down each side would be more difficult and likely require installation in the tail. I'd expect someone in the EAA world will make something work in the future, if Dynon and Vans don't.

When I spoke with Dynon I was told that they would have an install kit shortly and that Van's would have the bracket.
However, when I spoke with Van's they said that they have a complete install kit with everything but the servo, however, here's the kicker, according to Van's, they are only producing a kit for the 14, and not the 10. That struck me as truly odd because there are hundreds of 10's flying and only a handful of 14's.  They said that the 14 kit "should be able to be modified" to work in a 10, but the 10 adaptation is not officially supported by Van's.  The Van's kit was pricey at about $160 for the install kit.

I've got to believe there is some miscommunication somewhere.

Thanks for the update. I was told the same thing by Dynon almost a month ago, seems it taking longer than anticipated.

So they provide the lion's share of the installation hardware, although just the other day we were told that the kit applies to the RV-10 and the RV-14, although the plans show the RV-14. Builders may install the kit on the RV-10 using the plans as a reference. (this is an almost-direct quote from Van's)

Van's charges $160 for their kit. Our servo is $750, and the tiller arm/bow accessory (that is almost available) from us is $150. It's a bit more than the other axes due to the expected volume. At those prices, we're about half the price of the other guys for the equivalent setup.
