A good weekend's work
|Preparing to trim 10cm off the back.|
|Quite a straight cut for me.|
Reassembled with a base. 10cm thinner and much more stable.
With the MIP supports. The brackets are much neater than the battens I was using before.
I cut a lot of holes for wiring.
Putting it all back together in the attic.
Phase 1 pictures: a bit of trial and error
|The supports for the instrument monitor on either side of the yoke enclosure.|
|A lot of work still to do.|
|Looking over the MIP at the outside view monitors.|
|I had to cut a hole to allow the pedals to sit far enough back for comfort.|
|Trying to decide the best layout for the switch panels.|
|Behind the scenes. On the right are the three outside view monitors, up on books until I can get the height right. In the foreground is the Leo Bodnar BU0836X card.|
|The yoke is tucked in under the instrument monitor.|
|Rear of the instrument monitor, above the yoke.|
|Testing the engine start panel, eventually destined for the overhead.|
|The excellent BU0836X interface card.|
|I picked up this 7 port mains powered USB hub for £20 from PC World.|
