Sophisticated glass-panel technology isn't out of reach for today's homebuilder, and the folks at HomebuiltHELP have put together a DVD tutorial to show you how.
In Building a Glass Panel for Homebuilt Aircraft Mark Townsend of CanZac Aviation takes you step-by-step from the planning stages through the actual fabrication procedures and wiring for a combination glass/conventional instrument panel for an experimental aircraft.
The 80-minute DVD discusses and demonstrates design and layout considerations, pros and cons of electronic versus conventional gauges, how to cut openings, wiring and plumbing instruments, and functionality and redundancy.
