I put mine on a left wing inspection panel, shimmed to level. Easy pitot line access. Had the unit go out coming back from the Bahamas. Dynon overnighted one and took 15min to change on the ramp. Works great.

I originally mounted my Dynon ADHARS across the rear of the longerons but I discovered it was difficult to get back there after the fuselage is closed and the elevator control rod was mounted. I relocated my mounting location to the rear battery tray area, the battery was moved to the firewall. The only downside is the need for the magnetometer which will be mounted at the wingtip.

I am amazed of how little room is left at the rear of the RV8. Even a small guy like myself, I find it hard to squeeze past the rear most frame of the baggage compartment.
