REFLECTOR: More panel discussion

Hi folks,

When I started this project, I spent many hours studying the Archangel EFIS 
& FMS system and concluded that, while somewhat expensive, it would be 
feasible.  However, since that time the company has seen fit to secure a 
TSO for these product (which, from first hand experience, only shows that 
they are better at bureaucratic paper-pushing than engineering).  Since 
that folly needs to be financed through some mechanism, they have chosen to 
set the price for the box well beyond the means of most GA participants; 
$30K+ installed for the EFIS alone; sans backups ( Who do they expect to 
pay that?).

This leaves me in the annoying position of having to search for a suitable 
replacement.  I've been told by Scott Baker (of Velocity West fame) that 
there are alternatives out there and that some of our builders are 
participating in the development.

Anyone know anything or have suggestions?
