Avionics upgrade and edm 900 location.

Post by Dominyc123 » Thu Aug 08, 2019 8:40 am

Hi,

What do you guys think about the edm 900 location. To me this setup looks a little weird. The aircraft is still in the avionics shop. Originally I was thinking to install edm 900 vertically, but I guess horizontal placement is easier to read. Any ideas, comments would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

It looks as if it is time for a new panel. you could then be rid of all of those plates and covers and your panel would look fresh.

I would put it vertical in the space above where it is now. That way you're not looking as far down for RPM/MP at key moments, especially on an approach.
