Roger that! I have to get down there today for some parts, so I will pick up a small kit.

Default Pitot

I had a bit of time and ran my AOA and Pitot lines. Hope this works as not sure of the throw of elevator bell crank...

Looks pretty good there brother! I think you should have plenty of clearance, good idea supporting it close to that radius too.

Thanks, Jereme! I had looked around at other designs and this seemed a good fit for my plane. The radius fittings at the bottom seemed the best solution if I could control it without too much hardware. Slow but steady...

Default servo brkt

Got some time away from figuring out electrical to pound a few rivets. I had to use some existing holes for the servo brkt so not quite even but it will work just fine.

Over drove one, maybe two but it will be ok, rivets were a bit long...

There are marks from my pen on the angle, it doesn't look too good but I doubt anyone will see them.

Very initial panel ideas. Disregard the round gauge designations. One will be for the SDS programmer. The others are TBD. I have both an airspeed and altimeter gauge that may or may not be used.

Default SDS

Decided on left placement of SDS programmer. Hole placement set for GRT MINI X or other in the future.

I am piecing together an idea and following a simple plan of one bite at a time.
