Since I have an entire VAF blog about the plane, I haven't been posting here often. But this is noteworthy. As of last night:

Default Rv3 project

I like the location of your slip ball. Such a basic instrument but so useful. One day I will find a spot to put one in my ship.
Keep pushing on ; you will have a serious RV GRIN then.

Default Panel upgrade

I purchased my first RV and it is a 3. Handsome things I was not happy with so decided to go ahead and do the things I want. The panel is getting a complete make over.

Still have a few things to do, it happy with it so far.

On my -4, I put the (early model) GPS under the panel. Hated the location, but I was out of room.

Given the choice, I'd put as much as I could on the main panel so you don't have to bend down to see it. And it's much easier to work on things there, too, after you take off the fuselage panel.
