Default Panel lay-out

This is how a single pilot IFR/VFR panel should be laid out with the two screens in front of the pilot. It is a bad mistake IMO to place one screen on the RH side and only one screen in front of the pilot in a two screen lay-out.

I felt when I built my panel (below) that the Dynon D-100 on the right would be a good stand by EFIS should the two main screen go dark. The day this unthinkable problem happen to me I found that the screen on the far right VERY difficult to read.

As a result of this I put in the Garmin G5 just the the left of the PFD. In this location it is easy to read plus it has in own back up battery.

No final avionics yet, but I think I have my layout just about the way I want it.

Looks great, only downside may be working in the tunnel will become 'challenging' with the center stack.

I shouldn?t have to work in the tunnel. I put the inspection panel on the side for inspection, but I?m putting filters in wing root. I dont want to be spilling fuel in the cabin during conditional inspections.

Default Panel is Built!

Just got this pic from Aerotronics today of my completed panel ready to be shipped! Can't wait to see it in the plane.

Can't say enough good about Andre Todd and others at Aerotronics. They have been so good to work with so far (and see no reason for that to change). Very responsive and helpful as we designed, changed and finalized everything.
