Thinking about putting some panel mounted avionics in my cub. Any suggestions?
I currently have a handheld comm plugged into a surface mounted antennae with a PTT, batt powered 2 place intercom, and a garmin 496.
I traveled from L48 through Canada to Alaska and back with this set up. I have traveled all over the L48 in spray planes with no avionics and some with comm and transponder.
I don't want to put in a bunch of extra weight or finicky electroncis, but would like to at least put in an intercom and some reliable basic equipment. I haven't had any problems traveling around the country, but I'm guessing it won't be getting any less restrictive in the future either.
Main emphasis on quality, reliable and light weight, cost is secondary.
