Default My old panel - Tear down

Thought you might like to see a panel being taken apart. This is the panel in the AOPA Win A Six - as it looks right now. It didn't used to look this bad and I doubt it ever will again. My wife could only recognize it by the curtain on the left. It wasn't bad before they started, of course after they get done it might look almost as good as my RV-7A when I finish it!

Default Fuzz Panel

Here Is my panel,
Very simple just like me. But I do have dual throttle , and pitch only for co-pilot, no mixture, cause there usually dopy, so they cant shut down the engine. if you like the idea I will show you the deal.

Question Why did you keep the trim indicators?

John, nice panel! Since you have the AFS3500 for an EIS and it has the trim indicator on it, why didn't you eliminate the stock trim indicators? I was looking at that as one of the (many) advantages of the AFS over others.

Scott, thanks for the photo.. I'm planning on a similar setup (dual GRT side-by-side) and am happy to see it work great in that config.

Smile My Panel - almost done

GRT EFIS (2), GRT EIS, TruTrak DigiFlight IIg AP, Garmin SL-30,. GTX327, Garmin GPSMap296. '296 mounted on the car mount that came with it; can be angled in pitch and yaw; supported on 1/8" aluminum bar cantilevered from angle stock nested inside flange at bottom of panel. SCB's wherever feasible. Panel-mounted PTT (red, next to radio) for when passenger stick is removed. Flap sw can be used by same hand as throttle. Switches on top on a removable mini-panel where space wasted and easier to work with. EFIS centered in front of pilot, required moving panel support rib on tip-up. Radio stack location determined by support structure of tip-up release mechanism. Left-right switch for checking mag drops (first one to right of GPS). Lift Reserve Indicator (non electric). Plan to have backup battery and when available, the dual-AHRS/IFR capable version that GRT has coming. Undecided about WX option.
Superior XP-360 Plus (FI), Sam James cowl and plenum. RV-7A QB tip up. Prince P-Tip carbon fiber FP prop.
