The Features for the new B737NG MX Series Mode Control Panel (MCP) include:

- Full Scale Design
- FDS Proprietary “Integrated Backlit” (IBL) Panel
- Accurate Solenoid Controlled Auto Throttle Toggle
- Excellent Tactile Feel Push Switches with Dual Backlight
- Functional Bank Angle Selector
- Accurate Solenoid Controlled Auto Throttle Toggle
- White 7-Segment LED Displays
- Metal Powder Coated Knobs
- Metal Powder Coated Case
- Universal Power Supply (110/220v) Included
- Optional Captain and First Officer EFIS Panels Available
- Compatible with SIM-AVIONICS, ProSim737 and PMDG-737NGX

Planned Retail: $1299.95 (CAD)

The Solenoid Driven A/T toggle is full scale and an FDS proprietary design. Sound and feel are excellent! The Rotary Selector design is pulled from the PRO-MX MCP, same device employed.
Our IBL design is employed and utilizing LEDs.

Great reviews from people seeing the piece up close at the show this past weekend.

We will post more pictures shortly. The EFIS panel is employing the same high level as the MCP. The Selectors are high level. Center Push Switches are correct in appearance and feel. Planned Retail for the EFIS panel is $399.95 (CAD)

Production is shifting in order to be able to maintain the quantity/demand we are seeing. Some automation is being brought on stream and we are most of the way through that transition now. We are seeing units again late March and a steady flow in April. Apologies for the delay but for the end product we think this is a very smart move for us to take. A big change in how we produce but using automation for the boards and tougher parts allows us to focus on assembly.

Just wanted to update people on the MC Series MCP/EFIS units..
Production is shifting in order to be able to maintain the quantity/demand we are seeing. Some automation is being brought on line and we are most of the way through that transition now. We are seeing units again late March and a steady flow in April. Apologies for the delay but for the end product we think this is a very smart move for us to take. A big change in how we produce but using automation for the boards and tougher parts allows us to focus on assembly and more volume. Great feedback from existing customer... Just not enough of them with our current production rate!
Peter
