Marvin,

I like that a lot! Planning on much the same equipment and hadn't considered putting the G5 next to the canopy jettison handle. Been trying to fit all of that, including the jettison, along with a panel mount audio panel but I don't think that's going to work. Going to have to go with a remote.

I primed everything, but only painted the areas I expect to not be covered by the interior.

I had to cut the jettison handle to rotate it vertical and bent it at the cut to allow for offsetting it slightly to the right. I would have preferred the autopilot to be at the top, but that was a problem with the canopy handle. In retrospect, it could have been, but I'm gonna fly it as is. I used the space behind the autopilot controller to make a diode protected essential bus for the SDSEFI components. The SDS controller is between the seats at the bottom of the picture.

Default Here's my panel plan

Not a real panel yet but well into the planning stage.

Here's my wanna-be panel. Been editing equipment and PanelPlanner layout for a couple-a-few months.

Plan to go Garmin; left to right - G5 / ARETX ELT / G3X 10" EFIS / TOGA button / - top to bottom stack - AP / 650 / NavComm / Audio Panel / - G3X 7" portrait - Hobbs.

Plan to get started on acquiring and building within a month or so of new year

Why Audio panel on the bottom and AP on top? You'll touch the AP more on every flight than the audio panel.

Why I put the A/P at the top and the Audio Panel at the bottom of the center stack:

Objective, Weighable, Measurable, or Quantitative;
I shortened the canopy release handle to extend just out of the sub-panel face and clears the back side of the A/P with no interference when pulled to release the canopy; as the Audio Panel extends further and presents a clearance issue when pulling the canopy release handle. I chose not to provide a canopy release ability when in-flight, only for maintenance and accessibility purposes.

And, I will touch the A/P more than the Audio Panel while flying.

Subjective, Conditional, or Qualitative;
The A/P at the top of the center stack - more comfortable and easier to interface with because it is closer to eye level, less ‘clutter’ nearby at the top, logically located close to the TOGA button immediately to the left and above the 10” EFIS.

I like the Audio Panel at the bottom of the center stack - personal preference.

My plane, my money - my rules.
