Don't forget to include the costs of the updates in your decision making.
VFR chart updates for the Dynon are free. (I just paid $66.99 for a year of IFR updates from Seattle Avionics.)
I'm not sure of the cost for Garmin products are but it is worth looking into.
RV-9 (Yes, it's a dragon tail)
O-360 w/ dual P-mags
Build the plane you want, not the plane others want you to build!
