Fred
sounds impressive, so you ll go full IFR

The verticql power VP-50 can you explain what it realy brings to the show?

thx

The Vertical Power unit eliminates buses, circuit brakers, fuses etc. that have traditionally been a necessary part of aircraft electrical systems. Vertical Power calls it an "Electronic First Officer". They give a much better explantion. Here is the link:http://www.verticalpower.com/

The Vertical Power simplifies the wireing during the installation because it is the junction point for all inputs and outputs of the flight instruments, engine instruments and navigation instruments using RS 232 or ARINC 429 wires that plug in-to the various units. It is then like an on-board computer that can be programmed (preferrably on the ground) to operate systems needed for various phases of the flight.

I'm VFR in the LEZ. I wanted IFR capability mainly for emergency sitiuations:( , but will not be full IFR (I only have 1 display. Full IFR would require 2 displays and 2 comm radios). I will have 2 GPS. (1 in the EFIS and another in the 430.) I will have 2 independent attitude sources (1 in the EFIS and another in the A/P). The A/P can be operated by me as a stand-alone or controlled by EFIS programming. Should I loose the EFIS during IFR (which I don't plan on being in except in an emergency), the A/P could still fly it to VFR. These contingencies can be programmed into the VP before flight so it truly functions like a First Officer when these situations arise.

I like the idea of Fred Going VFR but having the IFR capability just in case of an emergency What would you incorporate in the ideal panel? Just trying to get as many ideas and opinions. Started saving pics from all the EZ panels I can find on the web, there is a wide variety to be seen Thanks for the help Ronny :D :D :D :D

REDUNDANCY!!!!!!REDUNDANCY!!!!!!REDUNDANCY!!!!!!REDUNDANCY!!!!!! with no single point failure spot.

Even if you don't plan to do much IFR, if a failure happens there, it is 100% and your survival might depend on either redundant instruments or your ability to use partial information to ascertain that the oily side is down. If you don't do much instrument work, the probability of this is slim. This, of course does not imply that you need 2 of everything.
I Canardly contain myself!
