    Overhead Panel Project Questions

    In a very general sense, what is the typical angle and positioning of the overhead panel? I'm interested in Boeing 757 but I suspect that these things will be similar between most types that have such panels for ergonomic reasons. If someone has a cross sectional drawing that shows the angle, height and relationship to the MIP, neutral plane of the yoke or other useful datum it would be very helpful.

    I am also looking for a working whisky compass to add to my setup. Any advice on sources and installation would be helpful.

    Hey CB. Check out the file in the 737 download area.. It is called demotions. There is a doc in there I think will help you.

    If the Whisky Compass your looking for needs to operate with Flightsim, SimKits offers one, but to me it is quite expensive.

    If you want a real one for looks, Ebay has several aviation gauges and compasses. You just need to wait for the auctions that are in the $20.00 range.

    Good Luck.
