Default RV-12 panel update in progress! (pics)

I just wanted to post some pics of our RV-12 panel upgrade we're going through right now. We hope to have it all finished up by the end of the month. If I can dig up a pic of how it looked before we started this, I'll post that too. But the previous equipment list is as follows:

Trutrak EFIS AP III
Trutrak ADI
Gemini EMS
Garmin 696
Garmin SL30
Garmin GTX327

And here's what it looks like right now!





Stay tuned for progress updates and final panel layout/equipment list. For now, it's a secret.

Default New update!

Here's what the panel looks like as of today. Progress is going well! We're looking good for being done by the end of August.

You've caught our interest!

Is this new panel going into TruTrak's company aircraft? If not, who's the lucky guy/gal?

SL30
GTX23ES
Gemini PFD
PM3000 intercom
GX Pilot
TS83 USB Module

Default Servo attachment?

Lucas, beautiful!

I'm building an RV-12 in Brazil and chose the analog panel route with a TruTrak AP.

How did you guys handle the servo attachment to the airframe and controls?

By the way... have you got the spec for those nice-looking rocker switches?

Regards,

Bruno

Hi Bruno,

I'll see if I can dig up some info for you. We might have some pics of the servo installation. You can use the standard RV12 servo installation. Thanks!

Default More 12 pics!

Ok, so I am not sure that I know what I am doing here...Lucas has gone home for the day, so you are stuck with me trying to figure out how to post pictures.

Anyway, Here are a few shots of how it's looking today.

I should be test flying tomorrow!

What's that funny round gauge right in the middle of things....?
