My 767-300 Progress
Thought I would start a new thread instead of updating to my "Starting Over" thread.
See http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/show...7&postcount=25 for previous pictures.
Here's a couple of progress pictures.... picked up a pair of brand new truck seats for $30 each... here's the FO seat:
They are real nice and comfortable.... and the price was good.
Here's some progress on the MIP:
Need to do a lot more work on the center panel.... that blank spot is where the standby guages goes.... they will be fakes until I get a 19" widescreen to replace the 17" one that is there now. I will be painting these soon. More to come.

Looks good! Are you using PM software?

That is looking fantastic Henry! I love your panels.
I see you are using the GF RP-48 for your MCP ..... I ordered one this week for exactly the same purpose (although being in an Airbus it will be a FCU).
Looks great!David R

Looks verry nice and I just love to see the use of GoFlight modules. I have 6 GF modules myself and I am very satisfied with those.

737Nut - No, I'm not using PM. I'm using Level D 767 and I just modified the panel.cfg file to create the Capt and Center panels and positioned the guages. The FO has the same view as the Capt (using a VGA splitter cable).
I was going to make my own seats (similiar to BSW seat) until I came upon these truck seat..... couldn't pass them up for that price.
And yes, the Goflight modules work great..... I'm using the RP-48 for the MCP (see one of my previous photo in the "Starting Over" link for the complete MCP panel)...... I don't have that panel in the picture as I am currently wiring up the switches... the only thing that it won't have is the display for the speed, heading, etc. Anyway, it's just a temporary solution until I can afford a MCP. I'm also using a GF-166 as my Com and ILS radio. I would like to get 2 more GF-166's (3 in total) for use as (Com1 and Com2) , ILS, and (transponder and ADF). I also have a remote RP-48 kit that I am using for the altimeter, auto brakes and EFIS.

Henry, are you using ONE GF166 as both a Comm AND a Nav on the same unit? If so, then how?

Enables the GF-166 to function as a NAV/COMM radio, alternately toggling between COM1 and NAV1 each time the button is pressed.
Button Action: Selector. When the GF-166 is functioning as COM1, pushing the button reconfigures the unit to function as NAV1. When functioning as NAV1 (or any other function other than COM1), pushing the button reconfigures the GF-166 to function as COM1.Indicator: Always off when this function is assigned.
A small letter 'c' (for COM) or 'n' (for NAV) appears in the upper left corner of the active frequency display providing an indication of the current operating mode.

Use the GFConfig program to program the left button to have the function of COM1_NAV1_TOGGLE. You can also have it toggle between COM1_COM2, NAV1_NAV2, Transponder_ADF and COM2_NAV2.
I also program the right button to be NAV_FREQ_OBS_SEL because on the 767 ILS radio, you use the right display to tune in your Course.
You can also program your GF-166 functionality from a RP-48. For example, I programmed one of my rp-48 buttons to be GF166_
FUNC_XPDR . I punch that button when ATC gives me the Transponder code, dial it in on the GF-166, punch the left button on the GF-166 to convert it back to be COM1. Once ATC gives me the runway to land on, I look up the ILS frequency and course, punch the left button to convert to NAV1, dial in the freqency, transfer it to left display, punch the right button, dial in the course, punch the left button to go back to COM1 again. The GF-166 remembers all the Frequency, course and XPDR settings for whatever it functionality is as you switch around.
Very versatile, these Goflight units. Natually, as I mentioned earlier, I would prefer to have 2 more GF-166 so I don't have to do all this switching around, but for now, it works (and it works great).

Wow, this is great information. I doubt I will use it as you have, (as I have mine operating currently as a Nav1/Nav2 unit only) but being able to switch between Nav1 and Comm1 is neat. From what I read though, you're saying that I can keep Nav1/2 and add Comm though all at the same time? Wow.
I will have to play with this.
12-20-2007, 03:51 PM #10
Yes, that's correct.
So, what were you using for a COM radio before?
