i always thought the radios would look awsome on top of the tv's...but even if there is space to do it it will take quite a lot of work restructuring the supports needed for this:

edit: maybe possible with the right mount to fit a cubby hole behind the ipad /edit

Ben, I thought the most important is ASI as I've experienced once flying without it [-X
What is a JPI fuel computer? Is the TV not having one?

Seth , your panel looks nice but I need some steam backups and the iPad vertical and tilted towards the pilot.

What's the point in having the Delorme on a bracket on the panel? Takes up space which can be utilized by something else. You ain't gonna type while you fly.

That's a gps tracking device , for safety, no typing
I would like to find a better place for it but must be close to the window, in my reach to be able to press sos if necessary and also close to the panel for the power supply.

My Delome found its place on the "shelve" at the wingroot inside next to the fuel sight glass. Works great and controlled from my i-Pad or Samsung phone.

Ben those Glass panel systems have great and very accurate fuel management systems already.

I will keep the pane l as per pic nr 1 with a I-pad cradle on the right. I run Delome sms and e-mail on theI-Pad with airnavpro in the background as a standby nav and secondary flight tracking. Works like a charm.

Hmmmm...so your wife will always know where you are? [-X :lol: :lol: :lol:
Tell you a story...few years ago in Italy there was this pilot who liked to impress many of his, always different, female pax with some kind of out of the way landing, and we knew that he loved to spend some time with those fortunate to be with him... :lol:
One day though he was away for toooo long and some people at the airfield started to become worry, they contact his wife that very fast came to the field and togheter with a fellow pilot they took off to look for him...found it just few miles from his base, the plane was upside down but likely both him and the other lady were safe...but his wife wasn't quite impress of what she saw! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi

The chains on the pedals link to springs then in turn to centre console. This helps with high speed ground stearing during takeoff or landing and guard against over reaction or corrections. Assisting novice Jabi pilots with over active feet once the front wheel is on the ground. No effect really in the air really but does neutralise ruder nicely after big input though.

Older Jabs came without it and one learned quickly to respect pedal inputs with front wheel on the ground.

However, do not remove!
