    Its been a while due to other commitments but Im now ready for the next part of my journey. The problem is that I like to fly more than I like to build !
    Like all the rest of my Flight-deck, Im going in blind so if it doesnt work - I will have to start again. As with the rest of the project there is a little "Poetic Licence" as there are restrictions in my loft, my budget and most of all - my open plan head...
    Basically its a 3.5mm ply sheet to go over my two £10 screens which run AirManager for my instruments. Ive also fitted pots to adjust the instruments to rid myself of "Keyboard chores". Not exactly the right shape - but close enough for Government Work

    Not much to show yet but you can see where Im going. Ive traced out the positions of the instruments and to make them fit the small screens - they have all been reduced to 70mm diameter. Enough for me to see without my reading glasses :shock:

    This was just an experimental video. Lots of mistakes when I look through. We'd never do the mag check with both engines at 2300 ! - and I didnt pull the throttles back to 36" after pumps off... Oops
    However the interruption from my Number One was just too good to miss :lol: :lol: :lol:
