    That's Ironic... saw the Concorde pit a couple days ago at the Fleet Air Arm museum in Yoville!

    I think the biggest issue is the unusually extensive FE panel. You would never really have a practical way to fly it alone with a panel that complex.

    I've just build one using 1 servo, a toilet roll tube and some sticky backed plastic.

    Now that I think about it though, it would be a pretty useful design. It is a lot smaller than other cockpits, plus it is a great cockpit to share since all three crewmembers are very busy, much busier than on most aircraft with an F/E.
