Default iS Avionics Aft Hole Mystery

Anyone who has the new iS avionics know what connectors go in the aft most hole of the avionics tray. I'm stumped. Nothing clearly showing in the instructions.

Sometimes design changes are made during the development process that occur too late to incorporate into parts already in production.

I think there is a plan to delete the aft hole at some point in the future. There is no down side to having the second hole.

Your plane is going to weigh 0.05oz less than future RV-12's

Default we joined the 2 holes

Our kids were having trouble getting the connectors thru either hole so we got out the Dremel and made them into one hole.

Hope you're kidding because that's structural and you have just made it weaker.
