Finally getting around to posting some pics of my completed RV14.

Love it!
KISS principle at work.
However, the avionics package you have is 10 times more capable than anything I have flown.
I'm planning very similar.

Beautiful. I am still a couple of years away from panel planning, but this looks very similar to what I want.

This is pretty darn close to what I was envisioning. Thanks for posting!

What is that thing to the left of your flaps switch? And what's the use case with the NAV/COM BNC connectors on the panel?

For me, on top of what you asked. You have to watch the space between a G3X and the bottom support bracket of panel will limit you on your switch height. Already prevented me from using the switches I wanted.

I love it.

I will doing something very similar to begin with, and then maybe add a second display in the future. I really like what looks like the Master Warning and Caution Lights. I have not seen this before and curious what systems they associated with.

Mark,
Great panel.
I’m at the stage of planning the panel and wiring the G3’s avionics.
I’m also using duel pMags. Question: what source did you use to determine how to wire the Test function for the pMags?

Thanks,
Jeff

TO/GA switch

During construction I went ahead and mounted a VOR antenna in the wing tip and a 2nd com antenna for the eventual upgrade to a GTN. So I just ended the coax in the panel and can quickly connect to a handheld unit if needed for now.

Thank you,

You can wire up master warning/caution lights to the GEA24, it’s easy. I really like having a “heads up’ light since it does catch my attention quicker than the actual CAS message. Also theses are press to test “switch” lights and show up well in bright sun. I wired up my CO test/reset switch to the caution light.

Nothing I did on my panel was a single original thought. I stole all my ideas from others who posted their panels. This is the main reason I posted my panel to help others visualize what they like/dislike. All my panel inspiration was from staring at other people’s panels.

Thanks Jeff,

I believe I just used the pmag schematic along with the schematic stein has on his website for the type of Honeywell switch I used. It’s a momentary switch in the test position for the pmag which just interrupts power to the pmag.
