Well done. Thankyou also for your blog . Are you happy with the iPad setup, as I have been thinking along those lines as I am getting close to panel and engine?

I am.

With the G5 as a secondary flight display the G5 replaces a second G3x screen and a second ADAHRS unit. The iPad can then be a courtesy screen, for a second pilot, and it is easily removable to fit on a knee board in cruise, which is how I plan on using it.

One thing I wish I had done was tilt the right side panel towards the left seat like in a Cirrus. I still may do it in the future. It would make it easier to reach and read. That would be true of a second G3x screen as well.

Well done, sir! Congratulations on your outstanding achievement. Thanks for the encouragement and information you have contributed. I like your build blog a lot!

What are your plans after you get her broken in? Aerobatics? Cross Country?

Mostly cross country with the wife. I already can go do gentleman's aerobatics in my Sonex. Hard to imagine that I won't roll the 14 every now and then however.

Nice job and congrats! You did a good job fitting all those avionics into your panel too...of course I'm biased!

Cheers,
Stein
