I was also rather concerned about having to assemble the different parts. In the end I have found it to be a lot of fun and easier. This way everything will be wired to a single control. Mixing and ...

Howdy!,
I am building a 747 and have been at it since the spring. It is definitely not a short project but there is something very satisfying in about spending days working out how to build some ...

I grinded the rounded portion off of a few and they fit perfectly. This is great as I need to build a number of standoff's to hold the plexi backers and panels in place for the EFIS. I ended up with ...

The small key kits do not have holes drilled for LED's however I also do not believe that these keys get lit in the real plane. At least they do not light up in project magenta's EFIS. The small key ...

I have been wondering how I will build a wheel to work with the Vertical Speed rotary on the Boeing MCP. I suppose I could get a block of plastic and start whittling (scary thought though). Any idea ...

I am also working on these and just picked up a grinder so I can grind a little off of the LED's. Have you had a chance to see the FAQ section for general build tips/large key kits? I have been foll ...

I have found the flat spot. It is only along the bottom and quite small. This is also the negative (-) side as I tested a few out to see if I was seeing correctly. A little sanding/grinding and I s ...

Any news on the CDU Kit for Boeing? I am about ready but will hold off for the elite if there will be one coming. They look much too good not to get.

'Perhaps this sounds a little dumb but being not overly electrically technical I am just going to ask anyway. There are yellow LED's in the key kits and I believe there is a difference between each o ...

I have been attempting to put together some of the large key kits. So far I cannot seem to place the large piece on over the LED's. The leads from the LED's (even when flattened as much as possible) ...

Well,
I have figured it out. As it turns out you can pop these open (the 30 degree selectors) and inside there are three little metal tabs. WARNING: There are two little BB sized balls that wil ...

I am trying to wire up one of the VRS30's to an EPIC card. It seems that there are 3 leads in the middle of the selector that correspond to 1-4, 5-8, 9-12. When in position 1,5,9 there is a circuit ...

I have sent you a private message. It should be in your inbox. Please send me any measurements. If you cannot see my private message please let me know and I will send you my e-mail again.

Thank ...
