Your Alt Air and Cabin Heat knobs may interfere with the forward co-pilot stick position when they are pulled out.

On my -10 the stick almost passes below the panel, and does pass below the heat controls (same location as yours). Depends on your choice of stick grips and if you cut the stick down, and how much. You do need to watch out for the alt air and mixture controls at full forward and full right/left, respectively.

Default Switches

Can you post a picture that includes switch labels? I'm a little concerned that all of your switches are in one row with no spaces between.

You're very likely to end up with one switch that should remain on during flight and one that you toggle during flight. With no space between them, it's fairly easy to accidentally flip the wrong one.

Basically one for pilot, one for co-pilot.
In case of engine cut, one can fly the plane , other can focus on engine start

Pitch and roll indicators are reversed, but not needed. The G3X can show trim positions.

Panel looks great. Efficient. Since you are in the process of building up your panel I would add a PTT (for Comms) on the upper left and right side of the panel. It will keep your hands free from messing with the stick while on auto-pilot. I know if sounds trivial but you will really like it.
