Default Just a test fit- but had to share

Picked it up from AFS Thursday and couldn't help but at least test fit it . Plenty to install behind the panel before it'll be secured, but wanted to see how it would look. It's set up to add an Avidyne GPS/NAV/COM at some point in the future.

In case anyone noticed the odd placement of the vent attachments, I had the modular panel (3 removable panels with radio stack) frame in before that I had to remove (will be in the classifieds at some point if anyone is interested).

Looks fabulous, Dan! I'm doing the wiring on my Advanced panel right now, and I've had several test fittings like yours. I can't wait to flip the switches and see everything come to life!

Bruce- Get us a pic! I looked at your site, but looks like it has been a few years since you updated the panel page.

Is anyone who flies behind dual Garmin 10" touch willing to comment on panel placement?

I'm laying out my panel now. I had originally assumed that I would have one screen in front of the pilot and one in front of the passenger. Autopilot and 650 sit in the middle.

Currently I use a 7" Dynon plus an iPad running Foreflight mounted to a ram mount in front of the passenger. My thought was that the Garmin screens would take over both roles -- the pilot's screen would act as PDF + synthetic vision + engine monitor, while the passenger's screen would be moving map + flight plan. Now I'm starting to think that the second screen may be too far away to comfortably use as a map. Granted, it's a small cockpit, but reading something on the right edge of the second screen could be a bit tricky.

The other option would be to move the second screen to the center and put the 650... somewhere?

Thoughts? How do you use your 10" screens?

Dan,

Have only hangar flown mine, but like this kind of placement.

I'd be honored, the layout has been refined over the years and each time it gets a little better. Only problem is now I want to redo my own panel... again!

Awesome panel! Is there a remote 2nd radio? I think I won't be able to use a remote radio because the GTR20 doesn't do 8.33 channel spacing which we need in the UK (for reasons known only to EASA)!
