Yet another change. After mounting the EFIS screen on the copilot side, it became obvious that the radios were going to interfere with the screen. We’ve decided to change the layout yet again, swapping the EFIS/Lite for the larger and more capable EFIS/Sport from Blue Mountain, and placing this on the copilot side of the instrument panel.

Here is the mounting frame for the EFIS/One flight computer, mounted level fore-and-aft and side-to-side, and inline with the flight path. I’ve used square tube stock and drilled and tapped mounting holes, the created angle aluminum mounts off of the keel and the pilot side of the fuselage to attach the tube too. As you can see below, it’s a very tight fit after leaving room for the screen to mount behind the panel., but the canard does barely clear.

Here is a shot of the panel after the screen and EFIS computer have been wired into the aircraft’s electrical system.
