Default RV-4 with Garmin Panel

The newest creation left today, I always hate to see them go

This was a "simple" VFR RV4 panel with some great features:
Included GTR200 with built in intercom, ADS-B In/Out (2020 compliant GPS) with mode S Xpdr, full auto pilot with GMC307 control panel, back-up battery and a GRT Mini X to back it all up.

Why would a vfr airplane need backup instruments?

It's not about needs really.. its about what we want isn't it?
I do love the symmetry of this panel, it really came out great IMO (I may be a bit prejudice though).

I have my local paint shop gurus (GloCustom) mix and shoot them for me with 2 part epoxy.
