13.3.4 Switches and Circuit Protection

The circuit breaker panel itself gets installed in the center keel and will be covered by an arm rest of sorts. That keeps all of this clutter off of the main instrument panel (leaving more room for actual instruments needed to fly the airplane) yet keeps the circuit breakers close by should the pilot need to reset one or turn one off due to a problem.

In the print below you can see the top of the panel on the left side, the panel assembly profile in the center, and the lower panel that houses the big honking connector that attaches the panel to the rest of the airplane.

This panel is still in the design stages. I’ll be updating this page with actual photos of the panel once I’ve actually built it!
