Default USB Cables

Ryan

Regarding Post #820 about the USB ports and cables, I bought two of these off Amazon.com.

Cables to Go 28062 USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Panel Mount Cable (1.5 Feet, Black)

One end plugs into one of the USB ports in the back of the Skyview and the other end mounts to the panel.

Version 2.0
A few things to be aware of with the iPad mini or tablets in general in the cockpit:
1) The iPad mini isn't viewable in the landscape orientation when using polarized sunglasses.
2) The screen isn't all that bright and washes out easily in the sunlight. It also tends to overheat and shutdown in direct sunlight.
3) Being located all of the way on the other side of the panel could make it challenging to use.
4) Tablet technology changes so fast you may not want to commit valuable panel space to a tablet.

I use a Google Nexus 7 in a RAM mount, attached to the F-704K upright cap strip. It works great!

Concur w/ above, and I'll add:
5) Glare is an issue, and flat-to-panel installation may be disappointing.
The aircraft environment was probably not a design requirement; sight angle and interior/exterior reflections are an ongoing challenge.
Articulating mount, and matte anti-glare coating have helped me; YMMV...

Default N771RG



I built the panel myself with a wiring harness from Pacific Coast. I've saved a bit of real estate on the left side for an autopilot, but really, so far, I've not missed it, flying VFR only. I'm holding off on ADS-B until I can get in and out complete. When in built the plane I was not yet a pilot, so the layout was a gamble, but I'm thrilled that it serves me perfectly, and is a joy to use.

My proposed panel

I have added the Dynon Horizontal Button panels underneath the glare shield and will post new pictures when the glareshield is installed.
Take a look at this youtube video about Dynon

Default Finished Panel

I've posted several photos of this panel in progress over the last couple of years - but it is now finally finished! (at least as much as any panel is ever finished ).
