How does the PAR 100 sound compared with the GTN 650?

Default Concept and Reality

So - I'm days away from my certification inspection and getting my docs and ducks in a row. I came across my Panel Planner concept panel.

Looks like this:


Took this one at the hangar today:


So in the end - expectation meets reality - how cool is that!

You're right Scott - concept and reality are much easier to achieve these days with panel planning software (XPanel in my case).

My build log has more info

Default Off topic: A Power Flarm?

So hows that Power Flarm working for you? Are they broadcasting ADSB traffic broadly in the UK or mainly for gliders at this point?

Without going into a thread drift - PowerFLARM working well lots of good heads up with mode C. Gliders use FLARM but the few that I have seen were not transmitting/equipped. ADSB mainly airliners but I use my MGL EFIS GPS out to my Trig T21 for ADSB and that is working well as this electronic plane spotters website shows!
