After thinking about it a lot and consulting some other builders, I decided to use Vertical Power’s VP-X Pro for my main electrical buss.
Since I’ve committed to Dynon’s SkyView system, it made sense to use the VP-X Pro for electrical system management since the two systems “talk” to each other. I can avoid having to find space in my panel for electrical gauges and I can program electrical system alerts into the SkyView system. Overall, it made sense to have one totally integrated system. As shown above, I mounted it between the two cross braces in the forward fuselage. This ought to afford easy connectivity to the battery and all of the avionics.
