Here is a picture of the instrument panel. Both are I-Pad Air II’s with a 9.7” screen. I wanted to be able to see the information easily. I use an I-Levil 2 located under the pilot seat to transmit all the information to them wirelessly, even the pitot and static tube. I use the AHRS software from Levil Aviation on the L.H. I-Pad and Wing X Pro on the R.H. I-Pad for the moving map.

Nice Job. Enjoy your aircraft. I like the dual ipads. Would love to see a close up of your panel. Is one a mini ipad and one a regular size?

Great first flight! On my first flight my pilot side door broke! I noticed you have the same fiberglass doors I had and in your flight the right side door is bowing out in the in the front center, you can see more air gap as you speed increases. I am not sure if you have the deep bubble doors as I have because your doors are not sucking out as much as mine did. If your doors suck out much more your lower latch could fail like mine did. I would recommend you install a door latch half way up on each door to the A/C frame as soon as possible.

Good luck with your test flying!
