I have the Dual 5600T screens in my -7 with dual ADAHARS, there is no problem viewing the MFD from the left seat and as mentioned the PFD joystick can control the MFD. When flying IFR I split the MFD to display a second horizon and the enroute chart/approach plate. Not including the inserts, you can display 4 different functions between the 2 screens and still have engine displays wherever you like.

In the USA there is no requirement for a backup EFIS for IFR flight, not saying that is smart just not required.

In my RV-10 I have 4 separate AHRS units.

All three main EFIS screens are connected to a Dynon ADAHRS-200 and ADAHRS-201. The Garmin G5 is wired to the ACM-ECB and gets connected to the AF-5600 and AF-5700 for cross checking. The AF-5600 and 5700 can also use the G5 ADAHRS as a backup ADAHRS source. The Avidyne IFD-550 also has an internal AHRS that drives the IFD horizon display in this picture.

I noticed the picture of the panel (in post #4) was of a Canadian aircraft. Hence my interest. It is my understanding that a backup display screen is required for IFR (in Canada) and needs to be within the pilot’s field of view (there’s a max viewing angle). I can’t find the reg right now so I was wondering if you knew off hand having just gone through this (what the maximum angle is). That panel is nice looking!
