Another one I finished recently, nice clean simple VFR panel with room for upgrading to IFR later if desired.



Dual COM, audio panel/intercom, GMC 307 controlled autopilot, ADS-B IN/OUT (2020 compliant), Dual ADAHRS,
GI 206 AOA on glare shield, big, bright, fast high resolution touch screen display in the middle – it just doesn’t get much better!

Default Panel labeling

Walt,
What did you use for labeling the panel. I am I in the process of putting a Garmin IFR suite in. In particular what specific tape did you use?
Thanks!

Brother TZe 9mm black on clear I think, it may have been 6mm as I use both.

Love the clean look Walt. Since the screen is offset to the right in the instrument panel, can the engine indicators be place on the right side of the screen moving the attitude indicator to the left and closer to A/C centerline?

In the standard "split screen" mode the PFD is on the left and MFD on the right (eng instruments still on the far left), this places the PFD almost perfectly aligned on the centerline. I didn't try moving the engine instrument location, that would put the PFD to far to the left I think.

Default Mixed breed

Panel has been powered up and engine runs showed no leakage in new engine sensor package.

Notice this is a combination of AFS/Dynon/GRT/Garmin, and Apple. Interesting combination, but the AFS control module lets everything work together.

Underneath this is primarily an AFS system. Rob Hickman from AFS has been very patient with me during the process, and has given me an incredible amount of support.
