As you may already know, I am ordering a new ASH31Mi. I am in the process of coming up with the panel layout and instrument selection. I would love to here from other pilots what they consider to be their dream panel (cost is not an issue).

Whatever you choose (largely personal preference) I'd recommend you have Rex install and wire the panel, rather than the factory. Or do it yourself.

Sounds good, except I would go with the Air Avionics ACD (Air Control Display), paired with the KRT2 and VT-01 Mode S transponder (saves 1 panel cutout). And I would add the Garmin GDL 82 ADS-B. I would also use the Air Avionics altimeter (it's awesome!).

Schleicher has a thing about circuit breakers (?!).

The Air Avionics ACD is awesome, but has some limitations when used with the KRT2. It will also control a Becker. When you use the ACD-57 as a two or three purpose head, it saves panel cutouts, but you loose some display information as the display is shared. I'd probably do two, one for radio, another for altimeter and xponder control. I'm not certain the VT-01 Mode S is as yet legal in the US as an ADS-B vehicle. Sadly Trig will not let the ACD control their xpdnr.

Air Glide S for inertial vario and wind
Biggest LX90x0 you can fit into panel
Powerflarm
AIR ACD altimeter (for transponder and radio)
AIR Traffic display for flarm alerts
Winter 80mm ASI, not the small one

I'd look for a radio that has a double knob for setting the frequency,
outer for MHz, inner for KHz. This will be a lot easier to use than the
ones that involve a single knob and a button to change the digit to set.
There is one of the modern small radios like this, Trig maybe.

Space is limited and Flarmview 2 does much of traffic display.
