Panel Arm

Yes, the panel arm should be close for me. Regarding instruments and gauges, the arm changes for them unless they are VERY short:-)

RV6A Panel Arm?

This is very strange for a person that's been flying certified aircraft for MANY years. How do you do a weight and balance without an arm, weigh the aircraft each time?? Thanks
