    A320 Captain Side EFIS Testing - Orange LEDs This Time

    Here's a couple of pics of testing captain's EFIS with orange LEDs.. I think once I get a piece of felt behind the panel to act a a light block so there is no light leakage around the switch cutouts it will be great. I hope to have the glare functional within a week. SIOC here I come!

    I will be using IOcards to interface the glare panels. So far I have not settled on a plane, I may just use the stock FSX 321 with Jeehell's software and/or vasfmc.

    nice work BuddyM,
    thanx for the photo's.

    I start with the OC switches with led too,
    when you find a way to backlit the caps, please let me know
    When once you have tasted flight,
    you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward

    Hi flatland..
    Actually I decided to engrave the button function legends onto the panel itself and I am not going to i,,uminate the caps, at least not for now. I love the way it looks with the panel lit up instead of the the button cap.
