Don, I notice there is a backup "ball" yaw indicator on the right of the G600.
Never seen that before, but its a great idea.

With no traditional turn and bank, coordinated flight is pure feel when the big screen goes out.
And it does go out--I lost an AHARS unit--and it takes down the electronic indication.

I may ask the around and see if the avionics guys can get me one of those.

The little ball thing was not expensive at all. They originally wanted me to keep the turn coordinator, and I asked if we could just put in a ball, and sure enough we could!

The G5 has a ball in it as well, so I've now got lots of redundancy on that!
