Adding The Dynon D3

I have decided to add the Dynan D3 to the copilot side of the panel. I gave serious thought to an AV-30, and the G5, but decided it wasn't worth that investment for the few times I have a pilot in the right seat. I have noticed that when I have a safety pilot on board they don't have an easy view of the instruments, mainly the Aspen, in particular the course heading.

I do offer an iPad mini 4 with AHRS for the copilots yoke, but, that unit has been so slow and buggy. With everything considered I felt the best investment would be the Dynon D3.

The Dynon D3 is not FAA TSO'ed. This unit can not be used as a primary certified instrument. The D3 is a supplemental unit only.
