I just got my panel cut this week. It?s still missing some holes for dimmers, circuit breakers, etc., which I can do myself. I had Bill at UpNorthAviation do the CAD work and panel cut.

Really looking forward to getting this added to the project!

Panel Preview. The right side gets an Ipad. Very Simple IFR panel.
G3X, G5, GMC507, GNX375.

I like the hat and the pic hanging near it.

Okay time to roll out V 0.2:

I replaced everything on the 'panel' and this time I have my G5, GSU 25 and a couple other can bus goodies hooked up. The only thing I didn't replace was the, 'Master' switch :D

Got the panel put together
Nothing is wired yet but I cut the panels, covered them in flat black vinyl wrap, and labeled them. Then I got everything mounted. Tada!

Thanks to Jared Solomon for the inspiration on this (Okay... I more or less just copied his panel with a couple minor changes. It's hard to argue with success. :p)

Let me know what you think.

Looks sharp!
I think it looks great! :)

Very solid, professional, functional. Nicely done!

V 0.5
Okay finally something that doesn't look hokie. The G3X is so damned sweet. I even have my right wing hooked up (which was the point of the exercise to begin with). I wanted to at least crappily calibrate my magnetometer. Rain prevented that but who cares!

Note the oh so eloquently mounted temp circuit panel.

I'm very happy with my choice to do all of the plane wiring myself.
It's not easy but its a blast getting back into wiring again. I used to
run miles of ethernet in stuffy attics before wifi was a thing and you
wanted to get your house, 'plugged in'... this is much more fun.

That being said... welcome to my own lil personal hell:

Another new RV-14 IFR AdvancedPanel. AF-5600 EFIS PFD-MFD, Avidyne IFD440, PS Engineering PDA360 Remote Audio Panel and Dynon Com Radio.

Van's just finished upgrading their original RV-14A to a Dynon HDX AdvancedPanel with our ACM-ECB. Van's factory RV-14A, RV-14, RV-7, RV-7A and RV-9A all have AdvancedPanels with our ACM-ECB.

Our plug-and-play AdvancedPanels are surprisingly affordable. We'd love to quote one for you.
