Aventura II Kit Upgrades

Aventura II Kit Upgrades

From: $204.00

There are many choices when you are configuring your new aircraft – no matter which aircraft you decide to build.  Sometimes, the aircraft tells you what it needs.  In the case of the Aventura II, it is telling me it needs to be set up for action on the water and flying doors-off.

On my personal aircraft I have decided to go very minimal.

  • GRT Engine Indication System, a separate Dual Voltage and fuel contents gauge (supplied by Viking with your FWF),
  • A couple of USB Charging points, a phone cradle and two iPad cradles with integrated cooling fans and back up batteries,
  • Thiesen wingtip lights (NAV, STROBE and POSITION all in one), Two ELL50 Landing Lights, and a Rotating Beacon (VERY handy to stop being run over by a boat in poor conditions).
  • Wingbug linked to my iPad for all of my basic flight instruments
  • Another iPad for navigation
  • Trig VHF and ADSB Transponder
  • Viking 130 HP engine for ludicrous take off performance.

You can price most of that up right here, otherwise let me know what you’re after and I can get it.

Viking View (EIS)

The Viking View is used as a simple EIS to show all the engine parameters in a plug and play system.

For pure simplicity and maximum bang-for-your buck, go for the pre-wired electrical panel and the Wingbug.  You will now have full engine monitoring and all of your flight instruments installed at a huge saving to any other combination on the market.  Plus, this panel is easy to upgrade if you ever like, saves on a lot panel space and can be retained as either your primary or a back up system into the future.  All you need is your communications suite and you're done.

Viking Electrical Panel

This is a beautifully crafted pre-wired and powder coated drop in panel for your Viking engine.

Includes the keyed starter switch, starter relay and all 6 switches / breakers needed for your installation. Also has cut-out for the Viking View instrument (can be trimmed off if desired).

Other options too for you to consider include the pre-wired centre console and the Viking View and Panel combined unit.  Viking are working hard to save you time.

Thiesen Electronics L.E.D. Red Aircraft Rotating Beacon 2 (ERB2)

Electronic Rotating Beacon 2 - Our new development with Intelligent Synchronization and FLARM-Interface

The technology carries on - so we developed the new ERB2 for you. With LEDs of the newest generation we were able to boost the brightness of about 25%. Simultaneously we reduced the power consumption remarkably. This makes an efficiency enhancement of about 50%!

As worlds first we integrated a FLARM-Interface in an anti collision light for motorized aircraft in order to increase the visibility and therefore the safety in the airspace. The by the Power-FLARM unit provided signals increase the light pulses of the ERB2 and therefore rises the attentiveness.

As a matter of course all our LED position lights / ACLs are water and seawater resistent. Since the electronic parts are completely integrated in the ERB2, no black box or other items are needed.

Our ERB2 complies with FAR23 regulations. Therefore experimantal constructors have a genuine alternative to Xenon-Flash lights.

The extremely bright, red rotating sequencing light flash has a beacon angle of 360° and is visible at 30° below and above the horizontal plane.

Like all our other ACLs, the ERB2 is completely sealed in high grade optic plastic. As all electronic components are in the ERB, there is no additional place needed.

For easy connection, the ERB2 is already provided with a 1,5/0,25 mm² four-wire-cable. It can be installed on the fuselage or tail by its flange footing and some additional silicone.

A detailed installation instruction and shrinking tubes are included.

FLARM-Interface

As worlds first we integrated a FLARM-Interface in an anti collision light for motorized aircraft in order to increase the visibility and therefore the safety in the airspace. The by the Power-FLARM unit provided signals increase the light pulses and therefore rises the attentiveness.

Intelligent Synchronization

The integration of our well proven Intelligent Synchronization allows a chronological sequence of power consumption for the connected anti collision lights and prevents battery and generator from becoming overloaded.

 

Thiesen Electronics Landing Light - ELL50

 

When used in combination with another Thiesen Electronic Landing Light 50 and the ILC (Intelligent Lighting Circuit) unit (both sold separately), your Electronic Landing Light 50 can be operated in any one of FOUR modes: Both OFF, as another strobe unit, as a pair of 'STEADY WHITE' landing lights, or as a set of alternating flashing white recognition lights (1 second illumination per side wig-wag's).  The recognition pattern greatly increases your visibility and has been shown in airliner studies to reduce the incidence of birdstrikes during all phases of flight.  I have wig-wags in my aircraft and they're always on whenever I am flying.  After I have landed I am regularly told that they could see my 'lights flashing from miles away'.  This feature works.

Be sure to select '2' in the quantity window if you want two lights, and also if you want the wig-wag capability.  For wig-wag, you'll need the additional ILC.

This video shows the similar ELL60 that demonstrates the 'strobe' and 'steady on' modes.

Thiesen Electronics Landing Light - ELL60

The landing light ELL60 is the logical evolution of ELL50 with even more power.

Despite its small size (diameter 60 mm) this headlight has an input power of 60 watts, which corresponds to a usual halogen headlight of 180 - 200 watts.

Thiesen Electronics ILC - Intelligent Lighting Circuit

 

Intelligent Synchronization

With the new ILC, for the first time it is possible to control two of our landing lights intelligently and preserving the battery at the same time.

The electronics of the ILC is completely sealed so that it is protected from moisture and vibration. Both our ELL50 with 30 W input power, as well as our ELL60 can be driven with 60 Watt input power.

The special feature of ILC is that it manages the Anti-Collision Light function of the landing lights as well as the Alternate Mode with its intelligent synchronization.

With our ILC two landing lights can be controlled in three different modes:

ACL mode: Here the two headlights are operated in the ACL (strobe) mode and are synchronized so that the battery (generator) is relieved by the best possible way "Intelligent Synchronization".

Alt mode:
In the "Alternate Mode" the two landing lights are alternating in a wig-wag style with a 1 second rhythm.

CB mode: In the landing light mode, both landing lights are switched on.

Thiesen Electronics NAV/STROBE/POSITION and Rear-facing Tail light with FLARM interface. (EPTA-NG)

Combination of Position Light, Tail Light and Anti Collision Light with FLARM-Interface

In the event of detecting an aircraft on a potential collision course, a connected PowerFLARM unit accelerates the flashing sequence of the EPTA-NG according to the FLARM alert level. This makes your aircraft more conspicuous and therefore helps to increase the safety in the airspace.

The new LED technology allows an incredibly brilliant red and green position lights with only 10% of the input power consumption compared with conventional lights.

The electronics are entirely encased in high optical plastic - which not only looks amazing, but it makes the EPTA absolutely insensitive to vibrations, water, dust and other environmental influences.

The EPTA-NG is provided with an internal overload protection. In case of over voltage the protector switches the EPTA-NG off. When the voltage drops or the EPTA is reset by disconnecting from the power supply the light is fully functional again. The overload protection will be activated by exceeding 17 V DC.

To make installation easy, the EPTA-NG wing tip lights are pre-wired.  They are easy to mount with screws and coloured silicone. For a quick and easy conversion from xenon flashes to our EPTA lights there is a conversion adapter available.

All systems are integrated into the light units so there is no need for external controllers, power conditioners, or power supplies. This can provide a significant savings of weight, complexity, and cost.

FLARM-Interface

With this interface (19.200 Baud, 8 Bit, No Parity, 1 Stop-Bit) a connected Power-FLARM unit can send the emergency levels 0 – 3 to the EPTA-NG and thus regulate the flash sequences of the lights. This increases the visibility of your aircraft in flight significantly and can help to prevent a collision.

Intelligent Synchronization

Our developed "Intelligent Synchronization" schedules the light pulses so there is no overlap of the individual lighting flashes. This ingenious pulse shifting reduces the battery and generator requirements as there is only one light on at any given moment. It prevents battery and generator from becoming overloaded.
