I had to draw the line somewhere Stein! I'm saving the other video input for the FLIR cam!

Default G-HUTY Panel - first assembly today

Finished painting the panel yesterday and paint was dry this morning so the long awaited time had finally come to have a go at the very first assembly of all the 'stuff' I've tried to squeeze in. It's amazing how long it takes just screwing things to the panel!!

In the UK it is mandatory to backup glass panels with ASI, ALT and compass. That means there's that extra couple of items to find space for (my compass will be going on top of the glare shield). This layout is the culmination of atleast two years planning so I hope it works out when G-HUTY eventually takes to the air.

The panel is fully home made with all cutouts done by hand (no CNC milling apart from the placards & labelling). The panel itself is about 1.5 inches taller than the Van's standard.

All in all, I'm very happy with the outcome. The only thing I might have a look at is the Garmin 240 audio panel. As it is, it partially masks the labelling of the central switches. I might see if I can rework the 240 so it is flush with the panel.

The only missing item is the remote switch for the ELT. I'm delaying buying an ELT to avoid the battery running down before the plane is finished. The ELT switch will go on the left above the Start Button. I've also got that little bit of space free on the far left just in case there's some super little gizmo that comes along that I just cannot live without

Thanks must go to Paul Dye for the inspiration for the home made Warning Light Panel. It's based on the same channel-within-channel idea he documented here on VAF.

Default Update...

Here's the latest pic of my RV-7 Panel... I just finished up most of the electrical/electronics and am about ready to mount the engine. Everything's going very well and all the components seem to be communicating well with each other.

Those are the 10" SV's right? Thanks for building that panel, I was wondering how two of them would fit! Add a VP-50 to eliminate the switches and a GNS-430 and I've just built my dream panel!!!

Yes they are, It's a stock panel too. I was worried that the switches wouldn't fit
but no problems. I would love to put a GNS-430 in there, But no more money!
