I didn’t make a note of it, but it was a position quite a few numbers before me.
It’s not cheap, but it looks like a pretty extensive set of sensors…I’ve gotten dependent on the EDM-700 in my 182 and this has a number of additional features. (% HP is very cool.) I also like the way the graphic display will minimize into a little corner of the moving map screen.
Avidyne’s description: "The FlightMax EX5000 Engine Monitor features a handy graphical fuel usage monitor, a Â“lean acquireÂ” mode, and a Â“percent horsepowerÂ” display, which assist the pilot in taking the guess work out of fuel and power management. The integrated fuel monitor displays fuel flow and computes nautical miles per gallon, fuel remaining, fuel-to-waypoint, and fuel-to-destination. All six cylinder head (CHT) and exhaust gas temperatures (EGT), RPM, manifold pressure, oil temperature, oil pressure, fuel flow, outside air temperature (OAT), and electrical bus voltages are also monitored and displayed.
It’s not that outrageously more expensive that it cost to put the EDM-700 on the 182 - a lot of labor went into it. I figure the extra 2 minutes warning I might get about a cylinder failure might be worth it…not to mention the backup to a lot of the steam gauges.
