Hi Scott,

great flightdeck, good job!  8)

How did you fix the cables in the cannon plugs? Or is the cable diameter fixing itself?

Cheers
Hans

Hello Hans,
I use the required Crimpers, pinning and de-pinning tools shown here.   You also need to buy pins which can be pricey.   I purchased all on ebay.

I am using 22 awg wire from Allspectrum Electronics (www.allspectrum.com). 

Scott

Amazing sim indeed!

Seeing an OEM Panel being brought back back to life is immensely satisfying! :)

Rob was over all day today and we worked diligently to build out my stepper to synchro interfaces which control many of the flight instrument.  ADI Pitch and roll complete along with HSI Compas card.   We also kicked off the beginning of fall season enjoying some Sam Adams Octoberfest beer while we wired and tested and tested and wired.   Did I mention that we did a lot of wiring?  Lol...

Ok, here it is...

Bleed Air panel - up and fully functional except for packs gauge (which will require some synchro work..)

Capt ADI - Pitch and Roll complete (FO will be cake as it jus copies signals)

Capt HSI - Compass Card running (again FO will basically "Y" off and use same signal.

Hi Scott (and Rob...  :) ),

Four words on your simulator:
Wow!
Amazing!
Thank You!

Seeing what you guys have accomplished with your ADI and HSI inspired me to bump my ERJ135 stand-by instruments up a couple of spots on my list of things to get done! Fair warning: may (WILL!) have to pick your brains on how to do them!

Thanks for sharing, and congrats on such unbelievable progress!

Marco
