Last month I took the opportunity to travel to Canada to visit Peter Cos at Flight Deck Solutions (www.flightdecksolutions.com). Peter gave me a comprehensive tour and I saw many of the products they had developed. The facilities were impressive.


That's pretty cool! I'm currently living in the UK at the moment but will be re-locating to Canada in the next few months. Would definitely love to go see the facility!

I can't find a vendor selling 747 throttle quadrants. Many many 737 TQ on sale - is there just a lack of interest?

Hi Ben,

I believe lack of demand is the issue. I had the same problem looking for a 777 quadrant. I guess long haulers aren't nearly as popular as 737s and A320s.

Throttletek will make a 747 replica TQ but you'd have to contact them for pricing. As far as I know, the only other option is Flight Deck Solutions.

I've contacted Roberto from Throttletek. I'm not sure if he's fine with me posting the cost for a backlit replica 747-400 TQ with speed brakes and flaps lever here, if you're interested either contact him or myself. There's a 10% rebate for 5+ and 20% for 10+ units ordered.

Let me know if you're interested, I'm keeping a tally.

Cheers

Hi Balt,

I may be interested depending on price and function (motorized, backlit?).

I am also from Sydney so perhaps we could also save on shipping :)

Some great new products for the 747 coming up!

As GodAtum stated before, Flight Deck Solutions are releasing the MX
Series Products with the 747 line coming in January 2015

Flight Deck Solutions MX Series Products


......and as Balt stated. Throttletek have announced that they're going to be making a replica 747 Throttle Quadrant which I believe is non-motorised.

interesting. I might be interested in the throttle too but would like to know if it can be supplied with a throttle stand. Also is it USB?

As I read it, ist the same as the 767 TQ.
USB Connection, Backlight, not motorized.

I think this is a good solution for that price.

Hi guys,

FYI, a review of the opencockpit 747 FMC-


Today I released Plug&Play SIOC scripts for a number of Opencockpit Modules:

You will find scripts for up to three 747FMCv3's, up to three COMM modules (implementing the displays and rotaries of RCP-L, RCP-R and RCP_R), EFIS Left, EFIS Right, MCP (version 1-2 and version 3, these are 737 MCP's adapted to be used as 747 MCP), Captains Clock, FO Clock and the ATC (Xpdr).

A setup.exe program detects the modules that you have plugged in, and it will make all configuration arrangements (creating PSXocm.lst and sioc.ini files).

You only have to Run PSX, run SIOC, run PSXseecon and you can enjoy the modules.

Note that for the FMC's you have to use a PSX instance with a layout with just the CDU window and to move it on top of the VGA screen of the FMC.

Read more about in the PSX OCM Manual at my PSXseecon website.

Cheers,
Nico

Could someone tell them the box is called CDU or MCDU, not FMC.

And that "CDU" is not a synonym of "FMC" either.

:-)

I don't mention it to satisfy myself. I just want to protect somebody else from embarassment :-)

When a man returns from the toilet, unaware of his trousers still being open, I usually feel the urge to tell him his trousers are open. -- If I were a devil, I'd give him no hint.

Just wondering if anyone has managed to get the GF-MCP Pro working with PSX yet?
I was given one until I get my own unit built (using OC USB/master interfaces and my own panel), so thought I would use it initially.

Just thought I'd ask... ;)

GodAtum, have you received your FDS gear? :)

Any idea if they are planning to release an MX version (or a more affordable version) of their 747-MCP?
