Hope this helps Geoff

This link will work a little better:

Geoff,

Love the asymmetrical panel. Three questions:

1. Does it come in another color? Not a fan of the tan.
2. Are the 2 AFS EFIS' the 8.4"
3. What are the knobs below the throttle quadrant?

The GPS annunciation is also displayed on the EFIS screen (LPV, +V.....)

1.The panel is carbon fiber and you can clear coat it and leave it with the
carbon fiber or paint it any color you wish
2.Those are the AFS 8.4 screens the symmetrical panel can hold the 10"
3.Knobs below the throttle are for ALT AIR, HEAT or any thing else. They are set back from the throttle, Mixture and prop

Here are the final designs and a picture of the Asymmetrical mold being cut on our Large CNC. Should be ready for delivery starting in April. There will
be a couple of the Asymmetrical panels on display at Sun & Fun.

Here is a picture of the first Asymmetrical panel out of the
mold. We are working on the symmetrical mold and should be completed
early next week. Panels will be available to order within a week.

Geoff,

Looks great. Waiting for the symetrical version for a tipper. These all look like they are setup for vernier cables. How do we handle throttle quadrants?

Also, is the carbon weave visible? (edit: looks like you answered this in post #64) Can't tell in the pics. I just want to clear coat after labeling and get that effect.

Thanks,

Default RV-8?

I asked some time ago if you were thinking doing something for the 8 and you said not at that time. How about this time? Have you or would you please consider designing something for the RV-8. If you are interested in doing that I can suggest a photo or 2 that may give inspiration.

Gerry.

I'm torn between the two designs.

With the assymetric, is a GNS430 or GTN going to be a reach to see/manage vice having it in the middle? Been a dozen years since I last flew an RV and really can't remember.

Otherwise I'm ready to cut you a check for a symmetric with G3X cutouts
