Tim,New to the matronics RV10 List  and appreciate the write up and video you did. I just started my RV10 build and need great planning ideas like this when I get to the panel.

I just realized that while I did a write-up on this, and a youtube
video, I haven't actually told anyone on the lists about it yet.

The write-up here, has all the history behind this, but the short
story is this: I've always wanted a better backup instrument, but
the panel space and the fact that I had cut 2.25" holes and didn't
have room for square instruments was limiting. I was finally going
to just give up and by 2 of the RC Allen 2600-2 instruments this
year, but *really* was not feeling good about that decision.
But a little google searching led me to a perfect option that
I hadn't found before. And, although it wasn't being sold in the
U.S., I decided to take the risk and try it and bought 2 for both
my RV10 and RV14.

Here's the write-up link:

And a quick photo:

I'm not affiliate with them in any way, and have received nothing
from them for showing them off, but needless to say, at the
price point (under $1000), I've become a fan of theirs and want
to share the info about it. Hopefully they'll be distributed in
the U.S. soon enough, and it'll be an easier (although it was
truly easy already) purchase for us U.S. Builders.

Anyway, the video gives some info, as does the write-up, so I won't
bore you here, but, after testing this in both planes and while
doing aerobatics, I can say that if you're looking for something
better to fill a 2.25" hole with, this would make an awesome

Hopefully it helps some of you who are currently dealing with
poor backups.
