Thumbs up

Now that is how it should look.

My avionics bay looks like a college dorm after a frat party next to Randy's installation.

Really beautiful Randy

Thanks Milt. You learn a few things after building three airplanes.

We just got ours back from my friend who placed our panel in his Laser etcher machine and then painted letters white, and then we put a coat of clear on.

Randy:

Do you have a bigger picture of your throttle quadrant and starter(?) switches. I've been thinking of setting my 4 up to either have the starter switches on the left, or possibly on the stick.

Go to http://www.teamrocketaircraft.com/gall/gallery.html. Go to Instrument Panels and then to Randy.

The sub-panel on the left is the alternator panel. The starter switches are on the right side. This is necessary particularly when hot starting a fuel injected engine. The wiring diagrams for these circuits are on my webpage.

Default Not exactly my panel, but I wish it were!

Ok, so this isn't exactly my own panel, but it's one for a F-1 Builder - George Fisher. I feel like it's mine and it's in my shop, so that should be enough, right?!?! Anyway, excuse the poor picture quality (the photographer 'me' isn't too skilled)! It's actually a nice muted "Oxford White" and looks beautiful. Hopefully George will post some pics when he gets it in his plane...which shouldn't be too far away - especially if we can get it finished and sent out to him!

Cheers,
Stein.

Default looking for lipstick camera

I called GRT yesterday and I was hoping I could use
one of the sceens to view the taxiways. "Only USB port,
problem finding camera and drivers and then write software."
I don't want to Buy the unit from ACS; although I have room.
