Big thanks to our customer, Mannan, who snapped this photo of his plane down in Florida. Mannan purchased #6 awg diesel locomotive cable for his battery application.
Here is what Mannan had to say about the plane and the diesel locomotive cable:
Here's a shot if my plane. It is called an RV-8 and is a kit plane. I finished and first flew it in 2006. It cruises at over 200 mph and burns less than 10 gallons of 100 octane low lead fuel per hour. It took me over 3 and a half years to build it and has over 14,000 rivets. (These are not "pop" rivets!) It is designed to do aerobatics and is a hoot to fly. Wife and I have been coast to coast and back twice.
The 2awg diesel locomotive cable that I bought from you guys will be used to run a dedicated "ground" from the battery which is located in the rear for proper balance, forward to the firewall. At the firewall, there will be a post to connect all the avionics and all the rest of the electrical components."
We appreciate the fun photo and the info, Mannan! Fly safe!!
