I have an iPad mounted in the panel that
will run Foreflight. That iPad is mounted in
a panel mount made by Guardian Avionics.
They also make a power supply for the iPad
and I mounted that today on the side of the
The iPad cord gets hard wired into the

I chose this location because this will most
likely only be used to charge my cell phone
in flight. If it were in the panel, then the
cord would be getting tangled with the

With this charger on the side of the

I riveted on these channels too. Look how

Here's the upper part of the channel where
the fuel lines connect to elbow fittings.
I'll install the fittings after paint. I see

Here's how it currently sits. To finish the

Dynon screen. If they do, then I can rivet
the glareshield panel and then fit the
The aft side window is ready to rivet, but
I'll wait until I get some carpet tape and
secure the carpet on the back wall. It's
difficult to reach if I can't stick my arm
