Smallest width of a MIP base
« on: February 21, 2018, 02:47:03 AM »
Hi

My build have minimalistic target and a challenge of being in a small room.
Therefore i want my front window post to be as close to the wall as possible. Kind of like the jetmax.

Right now i have descided for a 40cm width MIP sidewall.

What do you think of this? What does your measure from the panel to windowpost? Do you think i will get into problems with only 40cm?

Thanks.

So are you saying you will chop the FO's side down a little? Not sure I understand what measurement you are looking for. My cockpit I played with the width but not in the front or MIP area. I made it  a little narrower by making my back wall not as wide as it is supposed to be. Cut about a foot to a foot and a half from the overall width.

Sorry, should have made it more clesr that it is the sidewalls for the MIP structure and not the main panel itself. If i understand you have done that by cutting a foot from yours.

A foot to a foot and a half in the back. I forget I can run down and measure it..

Check the width of the seats you want to use. It does make the cabin a little narrower....
