Now for the big test

The battery is already grounded the airframe, but the hot wire is not connected to the battery. I have test cable with aligator clamps on each end, and an inline fuse in the middle of the cable. I hook the temporary cable to the positive post on the battery and the to the hot aircraft cable to complete the connection. This way if anything goes whacko, the fuse will blow and hopefully protect my avionics. I turned on the master switch and the radio switch. Hey, no smoke! I plugged in some old headsets and tried them out. They work! I also plugged in my iPhone and played music through the miniplug in the panel. The music sounds perfect! Phew!
