Mounting ELT

Postby planecrazzzy » Sat Nov 26, 2005 10:12 pm

In order to increase my "range" or fly with a passenger in my Experimental aircraft ( Kolb-Firestar II-N381PM ) I had to mount an ELT
(emergency locating transmitter ) for SAR (search and rescue)

  Here's the pictures...

The ELT is attached to the main motor mount tube, and it is located inside the wing Gap Seal....The antenna is located on top of the gap needs a reflective surface

Far right side, below ignition, it's the panel switch and warning light for the ELT

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...
