Front Panel v 2 is ready to be completed




The "new led panels" were assembled on the front panel...screwed up just behind the plastics...

Flap / spoiler:



Lights



Morse



MCP



It is cleaner than the old configuration...and it will be easier to do maintenance jobs.

Lighted up:







We also plugged the push-buttons in the USB Keyboard card and we tried to keep cables clean...





There are still flying cables...but the most difficult work was done...

We still have to assemble SAITEK module again, recode Opencockpits Outputs and try a final test...

Stay Tuned
