Peter has done a tremendous job developing a custom, as close as possible, Garmin 300 solution for the Cessna 162A Skycatcher with use of generic instruments, grouping and logic. My hat is entirely off to Mister Slodowy for his attention to detail and patience to make these things. In the Skycatcher, this G300 system is BOTH PFD & MFD and I really think fans of this aircraft, or interested in this type of compact glass & LSA are in for a real treat. Be sure to send Peter a note saying a big howdy and thank you.

This new panel provided enough motivation and inspiration to revisit the 3d cockpit. Updated some material colors, added cockpit glass and set the 2d panel to the 3d panel area so that all items are shown, and looks pleasantly seamless and integrated. These shots taken on my MBP with pixel shaders on and widescreen.
