Thanks all!

CDN- I like the idea of swapping the com/AP head unit and will have the folks at Advanced make that change as well as moving the displays up as much as possible (I am 6'4" after all).

Sahrens- good idea for sure. I'll do that as I'll be at the hangar this weekend working on the plane.

wjb- Advanced is doing the panel for me (layout, cut, wiring, etc) as a quick panel, so should be good but thanks for the tip.

Hi Dan, I agree with Carl about raising the displays as high as possible. It puts them in a better place for viewing. SteinAir can make you a panel, that is taller, so it's possible to move your switches under the display. They will also cut all the openings and all the holes for mounting your equipment.

With the switches under the display, place the auto-pilot control and radio control under the cutout for your IFD 540. The rest looks great.

That is a taller panel.... and if you want the plug-n-play ACM-ECB "Advanced Control Module with Electronic Circuit Breakers" it is only available from us.

The ACM-ECB has a port for the remote CO detector and Garmin G5, just plug it in and you're good to go.

As a stand alone unit, or only with the panel?

Thanks Guys-

Jim- great idea on the CO, I just sent Robs team a note to see if we can squeeze it in there somewhere.

This unit hides out or the way, puts a warning in the headphones and on the efis.

Loved the one I had in the 10.

Great! Thanks Mike. That should work and looks like it'll be hidden and talk to the Advanced EFIS and chew up little to no panel real estate
