    Airbus panels

    Is Flightdeck solution the only company in the whole wide world making Airbus panels?

    I'll bet Gwyn could cut you one from aluminum.

    I'd rather pay a few more dollars for a real aluminum panel that the vacu-formed panel FDS is peddling. Shipping would be cheaper for you so it might even out the cost.

    I think, correct me if I'm wrong.... anyone FDS is no longer manufacturing Airbus panels.

    Dunno, they still advertise the vacu-formed A-340 panel. Of course that doesn't mean the two-year wait won't apply.

    I asked two years ago if I could get some instrument bezels that they were using for the 757 panels they advertised on the site. They weren't even building them yet.

    gee..sorry fellas?....
    im i hearing this correctly?....back-stabbing fds?.....for what?

    pioneering this hobby so that all other companies could buy his stuff and copy it?
    being very generous to all with his warranty terms and help?
    designing things for all aircraft not just concentrating one one type so we all could buy what we want?

    for those of you that weren't around years ago....when the fds forum was the ONLY and BEST forum for this hobby.....im going to give you some important news.

    be very careful with what you say. fds has carved itself a history of being the leaders in this field. whithout one single doubt. so if you wanna stroll in at three minutes to midnight and make a call about them, you are soo far off base its incredible.

    my 2 pence.

    I don't think anyone is "back stabbing", and I think most builders know what roll FDS played in our hobby.

    I think builders have a right to compare products (vendors), as long as it done within moderation and NO BASHING.

    When it comes to FDS, there are LOVE/HATE relationships, as there is with any other vendor.

    So "ares" please be very careful with your accusations
