ZAON PCAS MRX
ZAON’S PORTABLE COLLISION AVOIDANCE system (PCAS) MRX is a small collision avoidance device that offers the features of upper-end systems. It features a digital range from 5
nautical miles to 1 nautical mile; relative altitude from ±2500 feet to ±500 feet, with
ascending/descending indicator; a built-in altimeter that provides the highest, real-time
accuracy available; displays the local squawk code and altitude; and offers audio alerts for
threats and advisories.
I try to spend my dollars on fuel rather than tools, but one flight with the MRX caused me
to rethink the usefulness of a collision avoidance system. It is not a replacement for visual
vigilance, but there is a limit to what can be seen on a hazy day. Having a little electronic
help is a nice advantage. … Jeff Dinius, EAA 330961
... The first thing that struck me was its size. It could easily be mistaken for an automotive
radar detector. The manual is one of the best that I’ve come across. It’s amazing how much
traffic you don’t see. It was great to have a heads up on the traffic called by Flight
Following, and it trains you to be a better judge of distance and relative altitude by giving
you a concrete number to compare to your sight picture...Best of all, Zaon shrunk down
previously costly and complex collision avoidance technology into a small, simple to use
package…and at a cost that Joe-Pilot can afford. … Eric Miller, EAA 617261
...I was fascinated at the amount of traffic that is nearby and never seen in spite of the
usual visual scanning. During our flights with MRX, both pilots continually made a concerted effort to see aircraft before the PCAS; Score: PCAS 47; Pilots 0. In 15 hours of flight,
our watchdog PCAS managed to notify me of aircraft before ATC…. Approaching uncontrolled airports is much more comfortable with PCAS; traffic with transponders can be
spotted early, allowing more time to look for non-radio aircraft. Two thumbs up from me...

THIS TOOL ALLOWS A builder to sneak a wire into an
already run or completed harness without removing
the ties or devices holding the bundles together.
So simple, one has to ask, “Why didn’t I think of
this?” I’ve used the spoon several times and found it
to be one of those products that makes me wonder
how I ever got along without it…James Burke, EAA
... What a fantastic idea! For years I have needed to cut
the zip ties so I could add another wire. I used it…and
it saved me 24 zip ties! It’s simple and effective!...

... The wirespoon is a great little timesaver…it worked
better than I could have hoped. It does work a bit
better with lacing cord as opposed to zip ties, but still
serves its purpose in either application. …The wirespoon can be used to protect a harness from being
nicked while cutting ties by inserting it under the tie
and lifting it away from the harness…

…It’s a godsend for non-destructively putting more
wire in an existing bundle without having to cut or
remove the ties/wire holders. I have been hesitant to
bundle stuff behind the panel that isn’t already, but I
think I’ll start doing so…Josh Jourdan, EAA 876440
…All in all a very useful tool for your toolbox…
