    buttons in front of the captain and First officer

    Roberto,
    maybe a stupid question ....
    in front of the captain there is a button or indicator showing the sidestick priority.
    the legend on this button or annunciator is an arrow pointing right and below
    ther is a word, which one....
    the site of meriweather indicates on the captain side there should be CAPT and in front
    of the first officer there is F/O

    Ok here is the answer:

    >in front of the captain there is a button or indicator showing the sidestick priority.
    >the legend on this button or annunciator is an arrow pointing right and below
    >ther is a word, which one....
    >the site of meriweather indicates on the captain side there should be CAPT and in front
    >of the first officer there is F/O
    >the panels produced by flight deck solutions have the F/O in front of the captain and the
    >word CAPT in front of the first officer.

    Ok In front of the Captain it should read Arrow pointing to the Right and CAPT on The F/O side Should read the arrow pointing to the left and F/O. So Flightdecksolutions is wrong there you should point it out to them.

    According to the FCOM:
    Red arrow light : comes on in front of the pilot losing authority.
    goes out if he has recovered his authority

    Green CAPT and F/O lights :When a pilot has taken priority by pressing the takeover pushbutton and the other pilot's sidestick is not at neutral, the light in front of the pilot with priority lights up. It goes out when the other pilot returns his stick to the neutral position.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks roberto,

    after some emails to FDS it seems that in just a couple of those legends the arrow hadnt been flipped
    and some of those ended up with a few customers. They already knew about this.
    Since I bought the fantastic realistic panels second hand and the previous owner did not notice
    it I thought this might have been an overlooked detail but no...the FDS guys deliver detailed panels
    and will replace the two legends.
    So we are still alined with the real airbus.
    Anyway, as soon as I have installed the glareshield I'll post a picture of my setup to show how real
    a cockpit can become just in a bedroom at home...
