The Radios arrived! Older style but used on many -800. The lightplate is busted and glass broken, but after i clean them and read the analog matrix of inputs this is outstanding value! The feel of the switches is Incredible!!!

The radios use a 2x5 Gray Code output, Easy to wire up and interface without taking them apart.  I have 2 just like the one you have that i used in my sim , already wired.  Let me know if interested. I also have the pinout from Gables.  I even have the arduino code to make them work. :)

Rob

Thanks Rob!
I have bought 4x of those radios and also older style Atc and ADF radio (all gables). I will not take these apeart as you say. I would be glad to get some pinouts info and arduinocode even better. I will send you aPM when my stuff arrives! :)

Removed the broken glass and bent the inactive-bar straight(ish).
After i glue the lightplate back on on the left one these will be good to go.

Love the old gables stuff!

Nice!

But where are the underglares?  :)

How's the overhead going? Any new progress?

No underglare, so i got both for 75Euro! :)
I will build my own underglares, think most replicas dont look exactly like the real stuff. Will atleast try.

Overhead progressing. Looking for last two items and cleaning out the mancave.

My cockpitbuild will start in about a month.i think i will start with the tokes and the linked mechanism.

But again, all this OEM looks incredible. :)
I am an OEM fetish! Hahaha

Yup - OEM is second to none!

Been on a semi-professional enthusiast sim once - all replica parts. Absolutely no comparison with the OEM stuff!

Pedistal almost filled up with items. Love the older gables. These will be pretty straightforward to interface aswell. Only one broken switch otherwise perfect condition. Need to fill the label with white print though...

Unfortunaly i can not use real pedistal bay due to my motors width of the throttle. Does anyone know how to fasten dzus into some custom wood structure. ( the radios that i had in previous post)

You can mount DZUS rail to wood without a problem if needed.

Ask around here, try eBay etc. Or you can buy them new from various places but they are very expensive.   Google DZUS PR35 rail

Two of the Com radios will be used as nav. :)
Does your Radios have the Nav labeling?
Is there any difference between the Com and Nav except label?

COM radios run from 118-137 MHz at .25 MHz spacings,
NAV radios run from 108.0 - 117.95 MHz at 50 kHz spacings.

Thanks for the heads up, i will only interface the two comms with good condition.

new plan! The older COM radios will be gutted and replaced with an MAX7219 LED display instead.
I tried to remove the button switches but couldent use a hex-key.

Has anyone succeded with removing the switches and buttons so that i can remove the lightplate?

You can find the NAV radios but they are usually the older style like 727, DC9, etc

Looked at your last video and saw that you have the matching nav panels but on ebay right now its only older stuff.
Will try to convert the ones first, then i might find the same as your nav panels if lucky.

NOT a good building day!
After recieving my tools to loosen the gables knobs, these screws are so tight that my metalpin broke in two pieces.

The old oem stuff is hard to work with!
