Default You Tube Milestone

Our YouTube channel passed 150,000 collective views yesterday.

Thanks to all those here who subscribe and watch.

I've been shooting some more flying content recently before winter closes in and will work on editing that over the coming weeks into a couple more vids.

I also branched off from the EFI side for a bit to do some vids on general engine topics, which I've wanted to do for a while.

On the EFI side, we are still wading through orders placed 2-3 weeks ago and doing our best to get them built and shipped out. Always some new/ improved bits in the works which are being introduced as they become available. Thanks to all our customers for their feedback to help us make SDS even better for the future.

Do you guys recommend a sniffle valve for installations running the full SDS system? I know mechanical fuel injection systems need it, but since post shut down leakage should be zero with electronic injectors I'm just curious if I need one.

No sniffle valve required. When the ECU or injector power is shut off, the injectors snap closed, so zero leakage.

That's what I assumed with the electronic injection, just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the reply.

Default Update

November has been another busy month for us. We sold out of EM-5 ECU PCBs last week but more are to be shipped from the loading facility on Dec. 3.

This break has given us several days to get back in earnest onto EM-6 software development and Barry has made some good progress towards that end. He's slowly knocking "to do" items off the list but we're still many months away from production EM-6 ECUs.

CPI and CPI-2 sales have been steady as has our line of CNC'd parts which has been keeping machinists Trevor and Howard busy as usual. We have a few new and improved parts for the EFI kits which is always an ongoing process.

I've managed to arrange new sources for some of the common ignition components we use, as the original ones often have had very long lead times or spotty supply which is maddening when we are super busy like most of this year.

We don't have any plans to develop kits for any more aviation engines at this time as we have enough business to keep us hopping all year it seems with the present portfolio. This includes Lycoming 235 to 580, Conti O-200 and IO-550, Jabiru 2200/3300 and Rotax 912. We also cover VW, Subaru and GM LS aero conversions with some special parts.

Thanks again to all the fine folks who've supported us and given us valuable feedback to improve SDS products.
