Change to Radio Stack

With the cancellation of the MGL NAV radio, I decided to switch to the VAL Avionics remote COM & NAV radios. The plan is to just place then in the stack in the space I had reserved for the MGL radios and then have a temporary faceplate on this section. Later I may do something a little more creative.
