Left hand second throttle sounds like a nice mod, is how that was done documented anywhere, or is there a common way of doing it? Is it just a second cable to the carb/FI actuating lever?

Could get interesting when you hit TOGA instead of disconnect or vice-versa.

We're doing dual side throttles though, so putting TOGA on the panel didn't make sense either. As of now its a complete HOTAS (hands on throttle and stick) setup for approach and go-around. If we put it on the panel you would have to let go of the stick at minimums to press it, which for fully coupled approaches isn't too big of an issue since you'll have a hand mostly free. But even in coupled approached, I like having my hand near the yoke/stick just in case. We thought about putting it on the throttles, but there's only room for a single button on the throttles and that's being used for smoke activation. I'm sure it'll take some getting used to, but most planes take at least a little bit of practice before the switchology becomes 2nd nature.

Default AZ VFR "budget" Panel

I thought I would share with you my budget-panel build up. Mission is VFR with some cross-country comfort features.

1) I already fly with my Garmin GDL50 (ADSB-in) displaying traffic and moving map (via Garmin Pilot) on my iPad and happy with that. So, wanted to keep that going in my RV7. Placing the iPad on the panel is new/different for me. We'll see how that goes. I have a hole in the panel behind the iPad to provide cooling air; not sure yet how I'm going to make that happen. Drilled a 5/8" for snap bushing and was thinking of connecting some sort of blast tube from the air duct. (If anybody has any ideas, let me know). Eventually, that space on the panel can be upgraded to take a G3X vertical mount (maybe, I already have a hard time calling this a "budget build").

2) ADSB-out & Transponder solution is the Tailbeacon-X operated via AV-20S. The Uavionix Skybeacon has been a great solution in my Cherokee-180. Also, the AV-20S provides some back-up features to the Garmin G5

3) Garmin GTR 200B: features the "monitor" mode which monitors the stand-by frequency and that's the only reason I use two separate radios in my Cherokee today (to get ATIS at destination airport, and stay on with ATC or with CTAF. I didn't see the need for two separate radios nor an audio panel). I have two separate Comm antennas mounted on the belly; the second is dedicated to a hand-held back-up radio with a RG-400 Coax w/BNC connector. I've tested the range of the Sporty's PJ2 connected via coax bnc & external antenna and it's quite impressive!

4) I really wanted auto pilot, so going with the stand-alone G5 and GMC 507.

5) JPI EDM 900 for engine & fuel monitoring

6) All exterior lighting is via FlyLEDs "The Works"; Tested in my garage and the family enjoyed the light show.

I may be missing something, but this is where I'm at for now.
