    Generic Auto Pilot Panel

    Hey Guys,

    I am currently planning a generic autopilot panel just to test the water on this DIY stuff. I am having a hard time choosing which buttons to choose for ALT, HDG, etc...Do you guys have any suggestions. I am looking for a simple push button switch that will illuminate when on and extinginguish when off. Also...a clean appearance as well Thanks!

    Justin

    I've forgotten what they're called but the small rectangular black switches that light up via the little green strip down one width when pressed then off again when pressed again.

    I'm sure someone here will be able to get a source for these, i don't knowwhat to search for though or any part junber etc.

    It was a very long time ago i bought some personally.
