Remote Compass Mounted
I chose to mount the Dynon Remote Compass, on the rear deck, in the tail section of the aircraft. This area proved to have the least amount of magnetic disturbances and was fairly accessible. It's hard to tell from the pics, but I fabricated a small bracket and set the tilt to within 1 degree of the EFIS angle on the panel. Yes, I used a digital level and brass screws/nuts for mounting. I also used 2 all alum pop rivets to mount the front end of the compass to the bracket. The aluminum bracket is bent at the front and bolted in place, while the tilt was set in the rear with two nuts, not counting the washer and nut used to secure the rear section.
