    Project 777, Finland



    Hi to all,

    My first picture i send to forum, so testing also
    Panels (not MCP & EFIS), MIP and trottle is homemade and backlighted, but nothing yet wired.
    I use OC cards, FS9 and planning to get Sim-avionics 777.
    Next thing to do is lift it up from floor and after couple months, starting to build up computers and screens to it.
    I really want to fly it also after long time build.
    More pics in my webpage.

    Looks fantastic!

    I'm keen to see your progress. Good luck with getting it "off the ground".

    Marco,
    great sim and great aircraft choice! I HIGHLY recommend the Sim-Avionics software. It's the best for 777 by far.

    Hi,

    Thanks fellow builders.
    I have looking project's of your's also and look's very nice.
    Reason i start boeing, is that i dont like joystick in cockpit, like airbus have.
    Then triple7, coz its just looks sooo nice in and out
    At this moment i make rudder panel to pedestal and have something to ask.

    - Do i use encorder to rudder knob or how it will work?

    - mom-off-mom switch to aileron?

    - have you find nice download of rudder trim screen and screens also left and right side of trottle?
    planing to printing out to plastic sheet to get it backlit.

    Thanks
    Marco

    Hi Marco.

    Excellent project by the way.

    The rudder trim knob is momentary (mom - off - mom). When you release the knob it will return to the centre point. You know the position of the trim from the gauge.

    The aileron switches are also mom - off -mom. Both have to be pressed together to activate the aileron trim. You know the position of the aileron trim from the pointer on the top of the yoke.

    Good luck. Please post your building techniques to your website. They will be very useful to lots of people.

    Tom.

    Hi Marco.

    Glad I could be of assistance.

    I don't have an exact measurement but I expect it is about 46mm. This is based upon a photographs of a 767 panel found here

    http://www.simpit.de/b767dim/index.html

    (specifically this one http://www.simpit.de/b767dim/pedestal/pedestal002.JPG and this one http://www.simpit.de/b767dim/pedestal/pedestal003.JPG)

    and the fact that the panel should be the same on the 777.

    Hope that is useful to you.

    Tom.
