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.
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!
That was amazing! Thanks for taking me along for the ride!
Congratulations, now you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
I'm jealous. hope to have my 701 in the air by June.
