I am looking for the necessary size for 7 segments displays, for both :

- The FCU/EFIS (airbus FDS panel)
- The pedestrial (NAV display and squawk).

Are 8mm okay ? I see people using 7.6mm but have here opportunity to buy cheapest 8mm..... Will they fit ? What about 10mm, is it realistic ?

-Thanks.


PS : what is the prefered colors ? On cockpit pictures from airliners.net, I can see they're sometimes yellow, sometimes red....

How will you be controlling these things. Just curious.

Thanks

Well actually Im planning to use new IFS Photon system for the hardware.
It's well documented about connecting 7-segments to its output module.
Or maybe i'll use InterfaceIT, if it's real soon enough.

For software controlling, i'll link them to FSUIPC / PM appropriate offsets, using the FSCockpit software to map it.

btw, there are simplier methods than the EPIC-like one... I've heard some ppl cannibalizing Goflight modules and putting them attached to FDS panels.


How would you do yourself ?

I looked at the products available but not sure just yet. Eagerly waiting to see the InterfaceIT, if thats better than whats going on right now other than that the photon product. Very anxious to see a non epic 7 segment display working
