    Overhead Panel Circuit Breaker

    I am in the planning stage in building the overhead panel for a Bell 206B and need guidance regarding the circuit breakers.

    I researched using actual push/pull circuit breakers but cost prohibits this option.

    Besides using actual circuit breakers has anyone built a functioning circuit breaker panel that looks like the original push/pull circuit breakers.

    Thanks

    Terry

    Re: Overhead Panel Circuit Breaker

    You will be hard pressed to find any push/pull breakers that won't break the bank. How important is push/pull functionality in the breaker? How important is breaker functionality? You might consider using pushbutton switches instead. Your software could "trip" the breaker, and you could reengage by pushing the button. that would allow you to simulate most failures, still give you some eyecandy, and save you some cash
