Instrument Panel Layout

Hi Phil,

That annunciator panel is taking up a lot of prime real estate you might want later for a Garmin 430 or moving map system. I put a line of LEDs behind a arcylic panel installed in the IP panel cover. This frees up a lot of space and the warning lights are right in your face.


Has Raplh at IK added a user programmable feature? I was very interested in that setup until I found out that you couldnt program the hi/low points, or anything else for that matter.


I chose a left/right/both/start key switch and a split master, despite Bob's recommendations. Just a personal thing.


You'll need a vacuum gauge and a compass somewhere. A cigarette lighter jack can also be handy. I added an electric landing brake switch next to the gear retract with up/down LEDs for both.


Hope this helps.

I can be reached on the "other" forum http://canardaviationforum.dmt.net
