After testing the left fuel tank, it was time to put it back on the wing. But before this, I wrestled with the decision of whether to install the stall warning horn. I had previously put rivets in the holes that define the stall warning vane opening. I'm going to have a heated pitot tube with AOA but I decided to install it anyway for the following reasons:
- I have always flown airplanes with standard stall horn - it's "wired in"
- I like redundancy
- It will work correctly on first flight, unlike AOA which needs calibration
- I can wire it to a light or an audio tone as opposed to a "Horn" which may not be easily heard with ANR headsets
- I can always disconnect it, but it would be hard to add after finishing the build
- I already had the parts
I had to remove and replace because the initial position didn't allow the microswitch to trip properly - easy fix.
Tank is back on wing, easy peasy.
