    Flight Deck Solutions Master caution recall.

    Can anyone help me with this goof up.

    Awhile back I purchased Flight Deck Solutions captain side master caution / six pack . I planned on using this with Marty's Prosim 737 in conjunction with either Phidgets LED 64 or Open Cockpits USB outputs. Problem is the FDS LED's are all wired for common ground and Phidgets and OC boards all all common positve. Short of buliding my own with the FDS pasrts does anyone know of a way around this??

    Hi, Not shure how the unit is made but I would investigate unsoldering the led's and reverse them. I have Prosim/Phidgets also and was going to buy the same six packs so I will need to do this too. I will get mine and see what I come up with in 2 weeks. I will let you know what I do, If you don't get it done by then.

    It look s like unsoldering and flipping would work. I dont have a hot enough gun to unsoder them fast enough without scorching the board. In the meantime what I did was to flip the baord around change the switch caps and built me a temp led display for the six pack.

    I may try to flip the leds soon...

    Honestly If I had to do it over again I would of purchased the Engravity Master caution and six pack. More expensive but looks better and the six pack also has recall switch
