    Boeing Overhead interfacing progress


    (click image to go to my website)

    I am in the process of interfacing. It is a slow process, but MAN it's fun!
    I am using overhead panels from FlyEngravity, interface boards is the SYS boards from FDS. Electronics comes from ELFA, and the frame is home made.
    The various knobs I use is described here.

    I will update the webpage during the next weeks. I hope the interfacing is done this week. Then I can hang the thing from my ceiling and take it for a flight!


    I am a VERY happy kid!

    (in fact, that URL will take you to the latest update every time).

    The annunciators are beautiful when I light'em up! Images to come within a week or so!

    James: Thank you, but I will guess that your work is very impressive too! Not that mine is...

    The weight? Don't know, but I'm guessing in the area of 5-10 kilos. But I am not good at guesstimating...
