There are many options out there when it comes to selecting a company that you will have build your system. Among many things to consider, ease of installation is one that is often overlooked as well as a company’s desire to consistently improve upon their product to make things easier and better for their customer. How does a company stand out from the rest? We believe first and foremost it is personally staying engaged with our customers to help them make the best selection for their intended use and always being accessible to them. Secondly, a company must never become complacent. We are always searching for new ways to not only make our product better but also bring more features. Much of our success in the Sling Aircraft world has been due to our mostly Plug N Play systems and taking much of the guess work out of the installation process as well as being there for our customers every step of the way.
Admittedly, it is much more difficult to make a plug n play system for the RV lineup due to the small space behind the panel and the limited wire run locations. It takes a lot of time and careful planning to engineer a solution – a task often left to the customer to figure out. While this approach works for some, not everyone has the knowledge of the avionics and electrical to consider everything that will be needed. Another challenge faced is the huge aftermarket that exists for RV Aircraft, a fact that makes a one size fits all plug n play an impossibility. The systems we have and are currently designing revolve around a standard wiring layout with the ability to customize as needed to accommodate different aftermarket options. This level of service is something many are not willing to put the effort into, certainly not those offering their service for next to nothing.
