Default Panel

Wow Ben! That looks great! How much lighter is everything? Nice glove box/cup holder area where the old transponder and fuel gauges were!

Default RV4 Dynon make-over

Taltruda, I lost 12 pounds with the conversion! The last time the ship was weighed was only 5 years ago and with the same scales. I gotta figure out some sort of door for the “new” glove box that won’t interfere with the stick. Ben

Default roll up door

Look on eBay. If you search specifically for a 1967 mustang roll up door for the glove compartment. That might work for you.

A friend and I have bought our -4 together, and luckily we both felt the same about our panel. It was full of old vacuum instruments, a VOR and other stuff we felt we'd never use. And so we set about doing a new panel.

Victor uses the plane for local aerobatics mostly, whereas I am mostly doing formation flying with the occasional cross country trip. All strictly VFR. And so we figured we didn't need glass panels. One simple EFIS to have a horizon, plus some reshuffling of the basic round dials that came with the plane. Add Mode S transponder and 8.33 kHz radio (both mandatory here), plus an iPad mini to tell you where you are. Who needs more?

So we put a new panel in CAD, had it CNCd and powder coated, moved the switches to the side panel, rewired 80% of the aircraft and came up with this.

Default hello Hans

nice to see your RV 4. I hope to see you this or next year. I have a RV7A. Bought this plane in US. She flies so great.
