Nick,
I'm envious. Your left HOTAS loos so cool.

Mine is a patched together 1/2 modern era, 1/2 old school round dials.
But it's mine, and on a budget that didn't cause me to break my piggy bank.

Panel Revision 3. This one will be in a while. 😁 It's ready for a GPS175 when funds permit.

Nice to see the value of MGL represented on your panel. It is a loss to us that they are no longer represented here on VAF........

That is an impressively clean and pleasing cockpit. Love the panel. It doesn't look forced like a lot of tandem cockpits with just too much stuff. Even though it has all the goodies. Nice simple scan with absolutely everything you need so you spend more time enjoying the harmonized flight capabilities of the RV-4 and less time on an ADHD scan inside the cockpit.

I wanted a clean, uncluttered panel and also to retain the canopy hinge release handle so Com 2 (GTR-20) and transponder (GTX-45R) went under the panel. Electrical protection is all fuses except for the alternator field breaker; I mounted two fuse blocks on the right panel support rib.

I'm really happy with how it turned out!
