that reminds me of a pic from the cockpit of an airliner. Very impressive picture.

Shouldn't you have a backup if you are flying at night? Ha! I just got my 2 screen and I thought it was a bit over the top. Great picture. I cant wait to get mine installed. Thanks

My comment was humor. Not very good I guess! My thought was you had so much ability and backup to get through about anything. I really can't imagine a better panel that what you have. I drool on mine and it is just sitting on my bench so much Im worried it may not be waterproof! The panels we have the option of putting in our experimental planes these days it truly amazing. The changes since I started building 2-1/2 years ago is crazy. I hope I get to fly mine before everything goes to Heads Up Display. That will truly be the ultimate!

I would love to see photos of your install. I am working on the panel support modifications needed for the 2 screens. Both my screens are on the pilot side and it requiring modifications. My radio is on the right side and it if was 1/2" higher, it would clear the back support - but it isn't! That is the biggest problem I am having right now. If you have pictures, I would love to see how you did things.

Thanks

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of photos, since I installed this panel in a rush (about two and half weeks). The old panel was a G3X Legacy system, picture of the old panel below. If you want to post any pictures with the areas you have questions about, I'd be more than happy to give you what guidance I can.

Default G3X Legacy System

I would be happy with either. Both panels (and pictures) are very nice.

Did you stay with conventional CB's or switch to VPX during panel update? Can't tell in the night pic if you removed them. Super cool!

I was just wondering if you realized this is an RV kit aircraft not an airbus right?


Very impressive! And im totally jealous that you have more $$$ into avionics then im going to have for nearly an entire airplane even if it is a demo for the company!
But with that being said, that is just sooooooooo sexy!
