Default New Panel w/AHRS

I just finished ripping out my all my old heavy steam gauges and re-designed and built the panel with a modular system. Using a hard mounted/powered iPad with quick release fasteners for ease of removal when desired. Powered by iLevil AHRS (with air data inputs) and a stratus backup AHRS. New Dynon D-10 EMS with all new plugs and custom push button start. USB chargers and music inputs installed as well.

I love it!!!!

Do you have heat sinks on the back of your ipad? Fan? This seems interesting.

Looks like some sort of secreted resin...

Yeah, but secreted from *what*?

Not yet, though it's open. Still in the testing phase but I have yet to have an overheat condition on the iPad. I made cover out of auto windshield material to put on it if I'm leaving it in the sun. Again, no issues yet. If it's going to be baking in the sun all day the quick disconnect panel makes life easy.

Default RV8 panel

This is an older panel but has as many bells and whistles as I'll ever need ....

Many thanks to David Buchwalter of Avionics Systems in Leesburg, VA. David did my original panel in 2003 and let me do the installation. This time, I let him do the honors. The retrofit took two weeks (exactly as promised) and is FLAWLESS. The workmanship and the attention to detail are impeccable. I simply can't say enough positive things about David's work.

The new panel includes two G3X Touch displays keyed off the GTN650 with the G5 backup and the Garmin autopilot (no YD). David was able to angle the displays upwards some (thank you Craig Moen for the idea!) which makes a significant difference given their location relative to a natural sightline.





Here's the old one

You guys have some amazing panels there, more elaborate than most Turbo props!:-) Oddly enough ( by most people thinking) I prefer the old ' six pack', old school I guess:-)
