    Will you be able to install the pull-out installation/carrying handle?

    Mouser sells those.

    If you build it to standard rack width I should be able to reuse the mounting tray.

    Personally, I don't see this being such a hard thing to buy. Essentially if you had a PC running SA_WXR and attached it to a 5" PSone Screen, the keyboard card could be attached to your switches.

    Don't ya think?

    That's my plan for my pseudo-Collins unit too.

    And since I have installed ActiveSky 6.5 into my fs2004.... the SA-WXR display has REALLY come alive and visually improved. An amazing difference. Too bad he stopped selling it. Weird move.

    Not to mention that the sim is a whole different beast now. Amazing improvement in both the feel and the visuals on the weather. (Don't use the Activesky graphics... use Flight Env and GEII Pro.)

    SA-WXR works fine in the "stand alone unit" mode for me. Still working on getting it on the ND correctly.

    best,

    ...................john

    The closest part number I can come to like on my Bendix radar is:

    Mouser Part # 563-H-9174-B, Bud part # H9174-B, page 1815 in catalog May-July 2008.

    This is 4" wide, a 1/4 narrower than the handle on mine but of the same shape. The length may be somewhat short on the legs and it may have to be screwed in a fixed position rather than stowable as on the real units. I don't have any problem with the handle being fixed. Rigging up a sliding handle system is too much aggravation and adds to the cost.

    There is no dimension for the legs, but the illustration makes them look pretty short. Maybe an inch or inch and a half at most. They may have more choices in leg length at the site on the .pdf spec sheet, but I can't hardly find anything on their computer catalog system.

    Clear anodized aluminum. $10.85 each, $9.05 for two, $8.56 for 15.

    While in the catalog I looked for a suitable box to install the electronics. I didn't find anything very appropriate. You might have better luck.

    The radar unit is 6.25 in width and looks to be about 5" high. This is wider than standard rack width, but these used a tray to mount them and the Duzs rails were not in the area where this was installed, but continued above and on the sides of the center bay of the RT box Similar to the above photos, but I had not installed the remaining rails above the radar unit when photos were taken.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the heads up!

    I would like to thank everyone here at Mycockpit for taking part in the polls including the staff,

    I know I left out a few aircraft, but I think I included the main Aircraft types.

    The General Aviation Radios, and B737 Radio Modules are near their end, and last touches for the interface software is just about completed. I also have to finish the bootloader firmware just encase people need to upgrade in the future.

    Next up is the Boeing 737 CDU for PMDG, Project Magenta compatibility,

    And also the Garmin 1000 Glass Cockpit (Single or Dual) that operates with Projectmagenta and FSX SP2 and maybe a few small projects in between.

    May I note these are all going to be USB based Plug and Play, all you will need to do is some simple configuration regarding the interface software, I have tried my best to make it as simple as possible, While adding an advanced tab for more options including input for FSUIPC offsets. The CDU also runs just on USB and power adaptor, so this in turn will let you keep your Graphics outputs for your projectors, screens.

    Stay tuned.

    I'd be very interested in your Gables radios if they're under $300.
