Default Panel Upgrade

I decided to re-do my panel over the winter to accomodate an iPad mini on the right side of the instrument panel. The central radio stack had to go. Here is the old setup that served me well for 14 years:



Here is the new panel:




The only new items are an MGL V6 comm, a Sandia Aerospace STX -165 transponder and fuse blocks behind the fold-down door on the right. Net loss of seven pounds from the empty weight.

I've got about 10 hours on the new radio and transponder and I like them both. The transponder was dead simple to wire for my simple installation, +12V, a ground wire, static air connection and an antenna.

Nice panel Bob. I noticed you took out your turn coordinator. Does your ipad have attitude?

And if so, does it talk back to you?

Talking Windscreen Done!

This is my first post into this rv6 thread, I was just so blow away with how my windscreen fairing turned out I had to post it. It sure has taken some time and effort but it was every bit worth it!

I guess you are too far to come over and do my windscreen...haha

Great work on the fairing. I hope I can get mine to come out that nice. Also great to see some movement in the RV-6 forum, been pretty quiet around here.

Well, next time we make it to OZ, I may have to come see it in person. Last time we were down under, we stuck to the north and east. Next time around we want to make it to some of the areas we missed. Too much country to see in a couple weeks. Unfortunately, it will probably be a while. 17 hours traveling witha toddler is no fun. Have to wait until she grows up a bit.
