    That really looks Great. I am doing something very similiar on my 12 with an I-Pad mini in the Air Gizmo dock, as well as a Becker Radio. Any chance you can share where you got or come up with the labeling?

    Thanks......Rod

    The CC 2300lb STC adds a lot of weight, heavy duty struts, heavy duty extended gear, and the wings have a lot of reinforcement. Also added 25 gallon tanks. 180 hp engine and constant speed prop added weight also. Still end up with over 1000 useful load. The instrument panel decals are from a cheap Office Depo label maker.

    Wow, pretty! Well done. How much does the MT prop combo weight compared to a metal prop like the "borer" or "Pawnee" ?
