Default New Panel - Almost ready to ship!

The guys at SteinAir made my day this afternoon when Nick sent me pictures of my panel. It is just about ready to ship. I am getting really anxious to see it in real life!

Rockwood, Love your panel!

I am a big believer in simplicity and decluttering panels and this one is good!

We still need to get up in my 7, I too have a very simple panel.

Default Phase 1 Complete.

After almost 5 (hot) months my phase 1 is finally complete! (work and a 45 minute commute to the hangar have been tough). No real snags to speak of. I had to relocate the magnetometer forward from the aft deck and into the rear tailcone and I continue to tune baffles/cowl/jetting fighting high CHT's - next stop; ASA cowl flaps Flies as advertised! she'll top a 160 knots but not if im putting the fuel in it 150 ktas at 2500 rpm or 140 ktas at 2400 rpm are happier spots.

Congrats, Derek! Thanks for the continued motivation, and enjoy flying to exotic locations (or at least somewhere outside the Phase 1 box!). Keep us updated on the temperature control situation.
