I don't think I'd ever get rid of the audio panel with my current setup - It's just too easy to adjust volume, etc. I hardly ever use my remote mounted com radio for the same reason - too many button pushes to access. I essentially use my 2nd (remote com) to get ATIS and that's about it.

It's probably just me, but sometimes the tactile feel of a knob lets you stay 1/2 second ahead of things without looking.

The same applies for the AP controller. Sure, its controllable through touchscreen, but how many clicks and swipes does it take to get there when you need to make a quick heading change?

Everyone will have their own input and opinions, none of which are right or wrong. What it boils down to is what equipment, & conditions you are used to flying.

Default new 14 panel

VFR G3x, easily upgradeable to IFR by sacrificing the center map box.







Found that Van's sub-panel mapbox hole was the perfect size to house the Garmin remote audio panel plus remote com1 and com2 radios.

Hey Steve,

Just curious; where are you putting the throttle, mixture, prop controls?

Can you remove the remote audio panel forward enough to get it out of the tray without removing the tray? It's going to be tight if it does.

Default Panel and GTN 750 height

I am looking at putting the GTN 750 with a GMA 35 mounted to it in the RV-14 center stack. I am going to use the canopy release mod Van's is coming out with that relocates the handle to a cable and knob system off to the side somewhere, so it won't be in the center stack.
I highly desire the 750 to be the top of the stack and high. From my messing around with CAD models it looks like the back of the 750 might hit the actual canopy release mechanism structure in the forward section bulkhead if it is up to max height on the center stack. Am I on the right track? Does anyone know what the minimum distance from the top of the center stack panel edge to the top of the 750 hole would be so as not to interfere with canopy mechanism? Or perhaps there are worthy mods to the system so I can overcome the interference and keep the 750 high up?
I don't have a model of the GMA 35 - it could be a problem too.
Flight chops panel looks like his 750 is quite high.
See photo - I am a novice at the CAD thing.
Thanks
Chris

Vanís is coming out with a relocated canopy release kit? First I heard of that. Great idea. How did you find out about that?

Thanks

Thanks for the posting on the remote handle. Do they publish the slides from the talk anywhere? Possibly EAA. Prior to doing that I would make sure it would work with my interior scheme. Looks like a call is in order.

How did you all choose the switches you decided to use? The feel and positive click on switches like these has to be really important. Do the various vendors bring samples to Sun&Fun or Oshkosh?
