    I think airbags need you traveling above a certain speed to arm....

    I think it’ll work nicely. Obviously the cgr30p on the left, then (L->R) IAS, aera660, AI, VSI. Below is com and txpdr (both tq). I wanted them pushed out to the side, but they’re too deep. TQ offers remote boxes with the shallow faces, which in hindsight would’ve worked according to the original plan. You see the gdl50 under and to the right, and hidden just above that is the stratus USB ports

    You need to check deeper on the transponder. Pacific Coast website states that the TSO is pending. If correct, this is not legal for US operations.

    With all due respect to PCA, their website has not been updated. The ktx2 is TSO’d and came shipped with STC paperwork.

    However their 6 1/4” panel mounted txpdr is apparently still pending STC.

    I don't care if you respect PCA or not. If the unit came with an FAA STC, then it's legal. If the TSO was still pending then it would not have been legal.

    But all the original instruments are made to match a black panel. Had this discussion in 1996 with a customer here with a light gray panel. Ugly to me but it was their plane. They won.

    Maybe it's the lighting, that panel looks more cream than white.
    Maybe splitting hairs, but IMHO there's a big difference between cream and white (as in bone white).
    My own airplane has a cream colored panel.
    Wouldn'ta been my first choice (I like grey),
    but it's OK.

    It’s tough to tell in pictures (maybe because my skylight is tinted? Not sure why) but my panel is a very very light cream. Dang near white. My metal interior panels are snow white and there’s very little color difference.

    I personally can’t stand airGizmo gps mounts- made this flush mount for a 660 recently- not a great pic but you get the idea...

    Older picture, but I'm happy with this setup. Slim, trim, and more information available than I can process. Didn't have to cut the old panel except to make the switch/breaker module removable. Not seen are the Garmin GDL-52 for ADS-B in mounted upside down under the panel, GDL-82 for ADS-B out under the back seat, and Sandia STX-165 Mode C transponder under and set back from the panel on the left. Sometimes have an older iPhone on the right running Garmin Pilot. Pretty much everything talks to everything over bluetooth or serial connection. This is overkill in a little cub that usually doesn't go very far from home, but I like it.

    Simple panel, the rest of the story. I always have the portable comm installed and sneak the iPhone using AHRS input in there when the weather is marginal. Reliable electrical system (none) and the starter is not what you would call lightweight. It weighs about 218 pounds.

    Anyone by chance know what material a typical Super Cub panel is cut from?

    Those carb heat, cabin heat and mixture knobs should be up high and those breakers and switches down low. Already throwing around a panel redo.

    Wide body fuselage. No talky radios, just the Garmin 695 GPS.

    The knobs I can work with (within reason) but have you ever tried to put a buss bar on switches/breakers on a curve? Painful to even think about.

    I don’t really like the air gizmo either. Just wasn’t sure how to setup a flush mount, which I wouldn’t preferred. Now the the uavionix av30 is certified, that’d be a sweet redesign.

    I actually kind of like the switch locations like that. You could kind of rest your hand on the top of the dash and just slide it down and to the right using your thumb to flip the switches on or off. Plus it looks good.

    Some simple panels pictured on this thread. https://www.supercub.org/forum/showt...54930-Cgr-30-p
    Those stack radios are a bitch in a Cub if you have to work on anything above. I love the 2 1/4" Trig stuff.

    The G3X touch is awesome, just in a different tax bracket than me. Just spent a week and a half flying from Texas to Arkansas, to New Mexico, Arkansas and back to Texas with the trusty Garmin 496 and the iFly ap on my phone.

    Overall, I agree with the simpler is better idea. Occasionally though, long distance trips with multiple stops into unfamiliar airports will happen. One day soon (maybe this spring), I'll be moving my SC from Tennessee to my new hangar at the Ennis, Montana airport. That's a long trip, especially with a plan for 2 1/2 hour legs over 2 or 3 days. The seriously better navigation performance of glass instruments is something to be appreciated and respected .

    Another one of the things that justifies glass is that I want to be able to keep my IFR currency active with practice approaches and holds in the SuperCub. It's much easier and less stressful to do with glass.

    I am getting rid of the vacuum instruments and I have a Dynon E5 installation in progress at this moment. I'm keeping my Garmin GNS430. This thread may have run its course by then, but I'll post a picture of what it looks like.

    The original airspeed indicator is there on the left side, CGR-30P for engine info, Trig radio and transponder, Garmin 796 in the middle, original altimeter on the right, and an RC Allen digital attitude indicator.
    i was looking at your panel and noticed the Trig radio and Transponder. I am wandering if you are using the built in intercom or are using a standalone inter com ... I am in the process of installing a trig com right now .

    Use the stand alone intercom. Easier to set/reset squelch and volume as the situation dictates. Plus, if you need extra volume (like the doors open) you can get intercoms higher audio output. And if you like your music, you can always get a stereo intercom.

    I like the built in intercom of the Trig. Installed it that way in several customer's airplanes and in my own. No issues, door open or closed. I do install ptt switches for the intercom when the door is open and a VOX switch to turn it on and off.
