If you have one of the above RC Allen Gyros, we are offering core credit towards any future
All RC Allen vacuum gyros run off of 4.5" Hg, erect time is 3 min. Instruments equipped with a warning flag will let you know when vacuum has dropped below 3.8" Hg. Flag retracts from view at 4.3" Hg. Instrument fits in a standard 3-1/8" panel cutout. 1/4"-18 NPTF nylon tube slip fitting is recommended for vacuum hose installation. 1/8"-27 NPTF nylon tube slip fitting is recommended for vacuum gage installation.
Weight: 2.75 lbs.
Meets or exceeds all requirements of FAA TSO C4c and Aeronautical Standard AS396B.
Made in the USA
Just installed the RCA22-7F (8 degree panel, non-internally lighted with blue over brown colors and Vac flag) in the co-pilot position of my 421B. Great looking instrument, shorter in length than the original so some plumbing re-work was required, but I love the increased space behind the panel. Time will tell if it holds up as well as my last one (a non-RC Allen instrument that went 18 years and about 2,500 flight hours). Nice looking instrument. Though I have dual vacuums and electronic annunciation of vacuum failure it is nice to have the instrument flag to give immediate failure warning.
This was a vast improvement over my original 3.75 AH it is lighter and more accurate, it doesnt drift, its easier to read, and the markings offer more precise flying. It has definitely made allowed me to fly much better under instruments. I feel much more confident with this new instrument than my original.
Work great. Highly disappointed that Aircraft Spruce ship it without any paperwork.
22-15: Display is blue over black (AKA Piper Display). All other model numbers have standard blue over brown display.
These come with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.
The RC Allen 22-7 gyro will come with the domestic 8130 paperwork included in the box.
Yes, this unit is FAA TSO approved for use in certified aircraft.
