Vic,
What is the LCD display at the top of the panel?

Default Lightspeed

It's the display for the Lightspeed ignition. (RPM, MP, and Timing).

Lots of new functions to learn...the autopilot interface and its functions are awesome.
AFS continues to be our favorite vendor to deal with because of their innovation and support.
You need one of our new Wi-Fi module so you can use ForeFlight on the iPad as another screen . An Avidyne IFD540 would look really good in that stack, switch to the PAC15 remote audio panel and you should have the room to do it.

I here a lot of talk about using an Ipad. I don't have one so I must be missing a lot but like the panel that is posted above it already has 5 screens of information, isn't that enough. how many screens of information does a guy need?

All of those screens don't help a bit when you're in a hotel room doing your flight planning! The iPad running Foreflight is the best bang for your buck and has revolutionized flight planning. If you have it for that purpose, it's also available in the cockpit It is a fantastic combo.

Default That's right

It's really neat to be able to flight plan on the IPAD with Foreflight and then move the flight plan to the screens in the cockpit instantly. One other realy cool feature is the scratchpad in Foreflight. It can be used in flight to copy clearances, clearance amendments, etc.

Still working on getting part A joined with Part B.... A little snafu at Stein with the rush to get it out before Oshkosh meant the wiring harness had to come off and go back for some corrections.... but man is their work purty...

Getting closer:



Waiting for longer throttle cable and looking for a trailer to make the big move. Wings need bottom skins and tips, then we'll put it all together.
