Great service, always prompt, merchandise always well packed....
showed up quick!!
I havent really used this yet and I hope I never will. After all, it is an ELT. I purchased this to install in my Zenith 750 kit plane that I am building. It is easy to install, and from reports of others who influenced my purchase it is a really good product.
The unit is compact and well engineered .. easy to install and connect. The self test feature simplifies the requirements for testing and annual inspection requirements. This important feature makes this unit much simpler and less expensive to maintain than some other 406 MHz beacons.
While I known that you dont control shipping price, it is getting very expensive. Last order for 3 Elt an a few other small thing was north of $90...
A very complete kit*, very well packaged and thought out, and the instruction booklet is well thought out, illustrated, and quite clear in the installation, registration, and operation. * Yeah, okay, you supply the attach hardware and a couple batteries if your want to install the remote panel and the party horn, but price out the competition, and their replacement batteries, and battery life, and youll see this unit gives the biggest buweeep-buweeep for the buck.
I dont know how to rate this product since I have not had opportunity to install it yet.
Quick and efficient, we received the ELT in good time and it was installed.
If you have a USA registered aircraft you will need a USA version (programmed for the USA). If you have an aircraft registered outside the USA you will need the international version in which we will need to know the country of registration so we can specifically program. You can fly any where in the world the key is programming to the country of aircraft registration.
If you have an ACK E-01 that you are replacing you can save some money and buy the retrofit kit as you already have parts installed that the E-04 will use. If you do not have an E-01 then you will need to buy the complete kit which will be a new installation.
By it self, no you will have to connect the E-04 to an external GPS to gain this feature. Refer to the manual for how to connect.
All of this is stated in the E-04 manual but a unit self test and checking lines for any corrosion is about all you need to do. No tools are needed and cost will only be the time to do the self test and check the lines.
The E-04 is complete 11-06395 (For USA registered aircraft) for a new installation. For GPS connection you will need to refer to section 6 of the manual (on the Document Tab) which tells you what wire you will need based on your installation.
In most cases yes the ELT is independent of aircraft power unless the manual state so and in this case is require if you add GPS information to the ELT.
The Ack 406/121.5 MHz E-04 ELT will meet the future Bahamas 406 Mhz Requirement and is approved for installation in a PA28-180.
