Default Old School Panel Versus Older School Panel

Old School Panel = 1996 RV6:

Older School Panel = 1932 Monocoupe 110

Probably ought to rip that second one out and install a G3X. It would greatly improve the resale. ;-)

A uAvionix AV-30 or one of the new Garmin 3" instruments wouldn't look out of place in the Monocoupe at all. And would add significant functionality to the aircraft. But I know, purists...

Basic airplane, all you need is a jelly jar compass, altimeter, airspeed... and a chart. Add engine instruments, Tach, OP, OT, Fuel gauge(s)....

Default What more do you need

Nice and simple from the 1930's, probably just like Van envisaged for the original RVs!
The iPad/tablet off to the side is surprisingly unobtrusive, and I just love the wood along with the metal fittings.
