The MINI6 indicator is the newest addition to RC Allen’s groundbreaking line of digital instruments. It offers all the instrumentation of a traditional six-pack in one clean, customizable and easy to read presentation. The fully certified, easy to install indicator comes equipped with an internal battery backup providing an exceptional level of redundancy to any application.
Had the MINI6 installed in our 1958 C-172 replacing the attitude indicator and leaving the other five instruments in place (for back up purposes). I was a little skeptical before installing (due to the small size), however after using the Mini6 for 10 flight hours. All my fears vanished. I find it absolutely amazing that one eight ounce instrument is able to replace six instruments and do a better job overall! Since it is working so well for our IFR purposes, we are contemplating removing our old altimeter to make room for a GPS cdi (Garmin 175) (keeping the other 4 instruments for backup purposes). A great way to bring an old airplane into the 21st century, reduce weight and obsolescence instruments. An added plus is that an external magnometer is NOT needed!
