    Reaming of tail hinge tabs and bushings were easier than I thought they would be. Now on to these ribs.

    Default prop and panel

    Prop is now ordered. Here is a sample panel layout. Still a few thing to get done but closer.

    That is going to be a good looking panel.

    It looks like you're using a Dynon intercom, radio and A/P control panel, but not a Dynon EFIS. Are you sure the SV-AP-PANEL will work in a non-Dynon system?

    SCU is proven by Kitfox. Info flows thru it and to the efis. It is just a smaller panel that lists the faults. Same company that made the larger panel. Just compact so I can add other items that I like.

    Eric, the whole system is Advanced flight Systems. Advanced and Dynon are the same company. Only other parts that are different are the SCU for the engine-prop combination and the Ipad on the right side of the panel.

    Aaah, OK! I didn't recognize the outline of the EFIS in that line drawing, so I wasn't sure what it was. Thanks. That's going to work nice and give you heaps of capability.

    Tail ribs in and varnished. Took a while to decide on the end caps. Got them where I like them with fabric pulled over them

    Just another hobby interfering with my build. Starting two colts. Here is a de-spooking clinic last Sunday. Start riding them next month. Just have to keep up on the build at night I guess.

    You have anymore photos or info on how you did those end caps? They look very well done with minimal superfil.
