    737 voltage display

    Have done a little attempt here to make the voltage display for the 737 overhead. The green 7-segments can be purchased here: https://www.elfa.se/ and part number: 75-518-15. (Common cathode).

    Did not have the 7-segment holders when I started on this, but not 100% sure if the opencockpits holders would fit either. So it was a really mess to wire this. But got it done, lol.

    Basically this is a piece of lexan-glass, which I cut holes for 7-segments, and then painted the lexan black.Thin piece of plastic with solarfilm in front, and doubleside tape to stick the 7-segments to the plastic.

    Pictures show better than I can write, lol. Now I have to wait for my usb-board from opencockpits, so I can start to learn how to get this programmed and working. That will be a challenge for sure. Because only difference I know about 1 and 0, is that 1 is more than 0, haha. Think I start with FLT-ALT panels first

    Thanks Michael. It is opencockpits display card. http://www.opencockpits.com/catalog/...ml?cPath=21_28

    Hope I get it working

    I feel a little bad about the air-bubbles between the solarfilm and the plastic front. But it shows better on a photo than in the cockpit
