I like the layout a lot. I've struggled a bit with my panel plans, wanting to fit a 10" PFD, a 650-size GPS, and other stuff, but never had a layout I liked. Will have to try and incorporate this into some of my plans.

So is your back up for a screen failure an independent autopilot?

I "think" my panel is now done...LOL. There always seems to be another little thing to add, but for now it's done...

The local FSDO required that on my RV-10 before signing off. I did a 1x1 printout and clear tape on the panel. Done.

No one says it has to stay there.
