Can someone measure the distance between seat surface and canopy? I have a really tall seated height, amd I'd like to know if I'd fit in one of these machines before I get too far down the daydream rabbit hole of potential ownership. Thanks.
I didn't want to clutter up an otherwise very clean and tidy cockpit, so fitted my Icom A-16 radio in its charger base just forward of the stick, above the USB port. It is handy that this model will operate while under charge/external power. I drilled a hole in the charger baseplate to bring power and ground wires out the bottom- these tap into the USB power leads. PTT is routed up the centre of the stick to a pushbutton on the top. I kept with the stubby antenna- simpler and tidier than an external whip and groundplane, and quite adequate range for circuit and local traffic comms. The radio appears reasonably secure sitting in the charager base, but I may have to fit a restraining strap or similar if needed. I do like the fact it can be easily removed to be used as a hand-held if needed. Readable and within reach while strapped in in flight attitude!
