Read What People are Saying about Vertical Power

“FWIW, the Vimeo video you did of the backbone wiring and demonstrating a couple of circuits did a whole lot for my comfort level when I did that wiring. Really, a very basic video but just packed with good info.” RV Builder

“Thank you for answering all of my questions. Never wired anything before. Your system helped make it possible.” RV-7 Builder

“I am really liking the VP-X. It makes it much easier to wire my RV-7. Very good product.” RV-7 Builder

“I’m brand new at this and I’m not an electrical guru at all… I’ve read through the installation manual a couple of times, trying to learn and get on top of all of this. The more I learn, the more excited I get about my VP-X system, and the more impressed I am! Thank you for building such a great product.” RV-7A Builder

“Can’t speak highly enough about VP-X, if you are installing glass it is the perfect compliment.” RV-10 Builder

“With the flap position sensor, the VP-X can do all sorts of tricks. The one touch/multi position feature is cool, the one touch retract is cool, the slow speed on go-around feature is cool, the inhibit above flap speed feature is cool, for the RV-10 the reflex position feature is cool…. The VP-X is just plain cool!” RV-7 Builder

“I have to say, I’ve never experienced a faster response and a more helpful attitude than yours. I would definitely buy from you again and would recommend that others do too – IN A HEARTBEAT. Thank you so very much.” RV Builder

“In my opinion, your power management system is one of the best advances in the light aircraft arena in years, and that’s why I chose it.” RV-10 Builder

“Thank you for a good product. Makes wiring much simpler.” RV-7 Builder

“I’m impressed with your product & your customer service.” RV-8 Builder

“I’ve installed the VP-X Pro and I’m extremely happy with it. It dramatically simplifies wiring and more importantly makes changes far easier.” RV-7 Builder

“Love my VP-X Pro so far!” RV-7 Builder

“Even Boeing is using electronic breakers in the 787. Becoming more main stream. Much easier to use.” RV-9A Builder

“I went with the VP-X in my RV12 EAB and would do it again.” RV-12 Builder

“This is the only aircraft I’ve wired but it seems quite a bit easier for a rookie than the traditional way. Especially the trim wires.” RV-7A Builder

“Thank you for the quick answer, by the way the product is fabulous!!” RV Builder

“Once again thank you for all your help, I am so new to the wiring side of things and I have found your software and service an amazing tool.” RV-9A Builder

“I gotta tell you when I first saw those Vertical Power boxes on your website I thought they were a solution looking for a problem. But having delved into it a bit I can see it’s a HUGE step forward in a plane. There are about a dozen good reasons to go with it and not one downside, including cost because I think overall it’s a money saver.” RV Builder

“Everything works *exactly* as advertised, right down to the landing light wig-wag at the programmed airspeed. What a brilliant device this is.” RV Builder

“I am blown away by the VP-X it’s awesome!!” RV Builder

“I have the Vertical Power VP-200 system in my RV-8 and love it. I wouldn’t build another homebuilt without one.” Matt Dralle, RV-8

“I second Matt on the VP-200, it has made it significantly easier, and let me tell you that the wiring design and implementation was the hardest piece for me. I would not build my plane any other way, at first I thought the cost was too high but the more I have designed it the more features I find the VP does for me that would have cost extra without it. It makes it well worth the difference of old school versus the solid state.” Pascal, RV-10

“I’ve installed the VP-50 because I don’t have the fancy, schmancy EFIS that you need for the VP-X. I love this system. I guess the VP-X is even better. The other day I added wig-wag capability to the plane. I didn’t need to do any more wiring, or buy any wig-waggy equipment. I just needed to do a software upgrade ( a free upgrade). The biggest thing I like about VP-50 is I have a TON of panel space available because I don’t have a lot of it set aside for circuit breakers and switches.” Bob Collins, RV-7A

“I am hugely satisfied with the whole VP technology, and I thank you for your creativity in designing it (and continuing to improve it), as well as the industry to bring it to market.” Mike Coster, RV-7 builder

“Your system just keeps making my life easier and easier.” RV-10 builder

“The VP-50 continues to operate flawlessly!” Marvin Williams, Jabiru 250

“The new unit has been fitted and is working perfectly.” Mark Castle-Smith, RV-7

“It works exactly like it’s supposed to.” Mark Cattell, RV-7

“The VP-200 is working as advertised and I am becoming a believer. Have made several long trips and it has worked flawlessly”. Ron Harnish, 30,000 hr airline pilot, RV-10

“While on the subject of avionics I kicked myself twice every day, once for not putting a Vertical Power system in my RV-10 and once for not putting a Vertical Power system in my 8A.” RV Builder

“Thanks for the info. It is exactly what I was looking for. This has been the experience that I have had with your company as a whole.” RV-10 Builder

“I’m quite certain that the Vertical Power products perform as advertised are well thought out and there are no safety issues.” Bob Nuckolls Aeroelectric, August 19th, 2008

“VP-50 performing great as always. I love the flexibility and ease of changing parameters. It seems I am always doing something different with wiring/equipment and it makes it a breeze to adapt the electrical system to my changes.” Tom Velvick, RV-4
