Finally done. Pardon the empty hole, I had to send the Trio Pro-pilot back for repair. I'm really happy with the layout of the equipment and switches so far.











GRT HXr, 430W, A210, GTX-327, Trio Propilot, GRT Mini-B, PSE 5000EX, 2 fuse boxes (Master buss and E-Buss), backup (alarm) battery wired to the E-buss for avionics brownout protection during startup and emergencies, dual alternators (N-D (Honda) and an SD-8) and an emergency feed from the Oddysey battery to the E-buss, for when it all goes REALLY wrong.

Default Nice Job Chuck!

Great layout. You'll probably see a few more copies of this down the road. For some of us, we could probably use an annunciator light next to the lower placard.

Thanks! Negative, it's the 10.4, but it's stuffed into a standard height panel, because I didn't want to sacrifice any maneuvering room.

Thanks. Maybe I should print another one in yellow or red and put it above the HXr...

I just have to ask... Is that cabin heat cable from a vintage Ford?

I think it's from a cherokee 180. I didn't build the plane, but that's what the engine was on, I got rid of all the old cherokee switches and breakers when I did the panel, but figured I'd leave the cabin heat knob for posterity.

Default Panel by Vic Syracuse (Baseleg Aviation)

Here is my panel that Vic Syracuse just finished for me. Great job Vic! There's another post here that shows the before and after shots.

Does that arrangement give you full forward motion for the stick?
Jamie - Sorry to be so long answering your question... the sticks hit the stop about 1" from the panel. - Mark

I think I'm done with the panel except for a pesky PWM switch that keeps breaking. All hand cut, painted,
labeled and wired myself. Moving the fuselage to the hanger this week to meet the rest of the parts for final assembly.
