Rob's 733 Sim
« on: October 11, 2017, 12:56:26 PM »
Here are a few pics of my sim as it stands today.  About 95% done and everything but the MCP is real.  It is a real joy to fly and even after 1000+ hrs I still sit in it and have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.   I have lots of videos on my YouTube channel so feel free to check them out.

This thing sure is a beauty! For me its always been about the OEM. I was looking to build simulators long time ago aswell but didnt engage since i thought that lots of repro looked plastic and kind of "toyish" look. But after seeing this cockpit and gotten the knowledge to interface there was no point of return! :)

Absolutely amazing sim - Looks pretty and the feeling you get from OEM panels is second to none! Not surprised you have a large number of hours in your sim

To be honest I'm surprised you're having a hard time finding an MCP - To my knowledge the MCP you're looking for will probably be worth around 2500 USD in SV condition with a certificate. That added with the fact that it's not in demand - you might be able to find one for less than that.

My search has come up empty so if you know any other ones please let me know.
Thanks for the kind words

There are lots of part numbers for the CL MCP - I'm not an expert when it comes to CL stuff.

Remember a few months back, a member here posted on his CL MCP and how he needed help - you said you were interested in his MCP if I remember correctly.

I know the P/N on this one - but confirm this is the variant you want first.

Here's what I found:
P/N 4038890-948

Avtrade Ltd, UK
Quantity 1 in SV - 2008 Tag
Call them - don't email them as I did and failed in the past.

Their contacts:
http://www.avtrade.com/contact/

There are other vendors but this seems to be the only well known one.

Hope this helps!
