Very nice Eric. I am always amazed at the quality of the European builds.

Default Phase I

I'm very proud of this. I used the spare wing walk doubler I had for a panel. It was perfect since the pre drilled holes were already lined up

Default Panel Plan



Pilots Side:
Engine Start Push Button
ELT Control (Not Shown)
Master
Avionics Master
Autopilot
Boost Pump

G3X
Flap Switch

Center Console
G5
GMC507
GTN625
Nav
Strobe
Landing
Taxi
Defost
Pitot

Right Side:
Ipad 12.9"
Small Glovebox for pens,glasses etc

The plan is to run as simple a panel as possible. All switches are Carling Contura Backlit and Laser etched by rockerswitchpros. Single Battery, Single Alternator with VPX Sport controlling the 12v electrical system. The G5 will have a battery backup as well as having an Ipad/Sentry combo for redundancy. The flap switch is a lit toggle switch as well as engine start. Every switch is lit and laser etched to do away with panel labels. I am hoping I can use the built in intercom of the GTR20 instead of a remote comm panel.

Behind the panel, GTR20 x2, GTX45R

Have you checked if you have enough room behind the panel for the G5 and for its screws?

Greetings.

Be careful that the Canopy Close-Out doesn't impinge on your instruments behind the panel when the canopy closes. The Close-Out is the gray box-like area with clecos in this picture:



Also, be careful that the C-01404-L/R Support Flanges don't overlap any part of your panel devices when the canopy is closed. In the above picture, that's the gray part that on the top underneath the glareshield.

As an example, I put dual 12.1" GRT HXr EFISs in my panel. They had to be aligned to the bottom of the panel so that the canopy could close. My steam ALT on the right actually just contacts the aft edge of the Close-Out when the canopy closes (if you look real closely, you can see a bit of white on the edge of the Close-Out which is where the paint was rubbed off and now exposes the primer).



I see you're in Colorado. PM me if you'd like to take a look at my bird to get a better perspective on what you need to watch out for when placing instruments on the panel.

Thank you both for the input. I was able to compress the stack and get the g5 with 15mm clearance at the top. I am worried the switches won't have enough support between the 625. E, I can't tell you how helpful your blog has been.
