Hi all,

I'm speccing up a PC for the FDS 747 pedestal. How many USB connections will I need for a fully populated pedestal?

Basic Overview:

SYS4XT
MCOMM (Capt)
MCOMM (FO)
XPNDR
CDU

Steve (Travelling) would likely say one very decent quality Powered USB Hub with 6 Outlets is ideal.

If I might add... if you are planning to use Aerowinx PSX as your flight program you probably want to add the third MCOMM for the OBS position

Thanks! In order not to start another thread, how about the overhead?

You will need:

1 SYS1 Card
1 SYS2 Card

That should cover all the switches and LED's.
