Hi,

I am starting to slowly assemble the various panels for an A320. In the process of doing so, I am starting to evaluate various producers of panels. Obviously, I know about FDS and am very impressed with their panels. I also stumbled on CockpitSonic and I tried to get a feel for their panels. However, the pictures on their site leave something to be desired. So, those of you who are using CockpitSonic for an A320, can you post your impression of them? Also, I see that you can buy their panels with and without hardware. If bought with hardware, does it resemble what you'd find in the real thing?

Thanks,

PS. I am not out to start a flame war:o

I haven't purchased any panels from them, just a lowly dual encoder with knobs. I lost the brass insert for the knob and they sent my a replacement at no charge ASAP.

I got a overhead from them and after a bit long
waiting I got it. Panels were ok. Total construction firm.
buttons were inserted already and there was a plastic
bag for those button covers. Leds for overhead was not
included? Some covers were missing.
The panel is actually A321. They did send those missing
covers. I also ordered hardware for pedestal from them
and all went well. They have nice pushbuttons with leds
Into them. Go for them.

Thanks for the info! Can you by any chance post a picture or two of your setup such that I can see the panels? That is one of my main gripes with CockpitSonicUSA that they don't show nice pictures. Since we are all going for realism (and visual realism) that is a bit saddening.
