Lone Star Aviation's new 1 port blower is the smallest (1 x 2 x2 ), most efficient (brushless dc motor), and the most versatile avionics cooling fan in our industry today.
This New blower’s universal mounting bracket makes it easy to set-up and install on a verity of aircraft Install immediately on experimental, sport and soon on general aviation, business, rotor-craft, commercial class aircraft as well as Land-Mobile, Marine and Military Vehicles.
I needed a cooling fan for my Garmin 796 thats installed in my panel on my RV8. The Garmin mount already had a 5/8 cooling port connection in the rear of it. The mounting face plate on the fan has 2 possible positions to install it to make any angle direction possible. I soldered a longer red wire to reach my 12v bus and soldered a connection to the black (ground) wire. Works perfect.

The one I received did not have the two screws to fasten the tube to the blower housing. When I test fitted a piece of scat duct the tube came right off when I removed the scat tube with little force. The tube was only glued in with silicone and not fastened with two screws as shown in the picture. In general I think this should sell for $10 bucks to reflect its quality.
