Default RV14A Panel N14ZT

Here's the panel almost completed, the rest to be done is more of the wiring connections behind the panel.



All of the currently acquired panel instrumentation is mounted and the harness that connects everything is installed and wired to a VP-X Pro (equipment harness built by Approach Fast Stack). 'Most' everything is wired up to the common fuselage harness, still have a few days to a week to get everything connected, that is to the 97.5% done point.

In the panel equip is Garmin; a G5, a GDU465; the stack top to bottom - TO/GA button switch, GMU507, GTN650, GTR200, GMA245, an ECK ELT remote control panel above the G5; and on the right side a partially water-jetted cut out (the corners) for a GDU470 7" portrait, and I have left enough space in the right panel and behind it to put in another GDU46X if that suits me or some future owner instead of the 470. Starter, mag, and alternator (B&C 60A and a B&C 20A) switches below the G5.

Lighted rockers along the bottom for electrical items, four dimmer switches, a Hobbs, next right one of a 5 rocker switch place-holders (black snap-in cover plates), and the special 'WINGS ON / WINGS OFF' rocker switch for good measure to keep passengers thinking and to hammer in the passenger warning placard. A panel mounted dual USB port and two alternator field breakers; a few more breakers to follow as I ran out of circuit assignments in the VP-X.

Default Phase I

I'm very proud of this. I used the spare wing walk doubler I had for a panel. It was perfect since the pre drilled holes were already lined up

Default Panel Plan



Pilots Side:
Engine Start Push Button
ELT Control (Not Shown)
Master
Avionics Master
Autopilot
Boost Pump

G3X
Flap Switch

Center Console
G5
GMC507
GTN625
Nav
Strobe
Landing
Taxi
Defost
Pitot

Right Side:
Ipad 12.9"
Small Glovebox for pens,glasses etc

The plan is to run as simple a panel as possible. All switches are Carling Contura Backlit and Laser etched by rockerswitchpros. Single Battery, Single Alternator with VPX Sport controlling the 12v electrical system. The G5 will have a battery backup as well as having an Ipad/Sentry combo for redundancy. The flap switch is a lit toggle switch as well as engine start. Every switch is lit and laser etched to do away with panel labels. I am hoping I can use the built in intercom of the GTR20 instead of a remote comm panel.

Behind the panel, GTR20 x2, GTX45R

Have you checked if you have enough room behind the panel for the G5 and for its screws?
