Only 19 votes ? :(

It's completely disheartening for the PSX community.

I am very satisfied with the current screen display version. Thank you very much.

For now, I am focusing on my main plan, finishing the standby instrument module:
1. An OEM ARINC 429-based altimeter indicator from a 767, which is much easier than replacing a pneumatic standby one.
2. Rebuilding the IAS indicator. I have already finished the hardware replacement and will wait for the software updates to rewrite the script.
3. Designing a replica standby attitude indicator, which is currently being aluminum 3D printed. It will be finished this weekend. I will upload some pictures to share.

Thank you, Nico and Hardy, for the quick and wonderful updates. I am always happy with the friendly PSX forum.

Regards,
Jack

Hi Seb,

Only done segments of flight with the bench test setup, but so far all good in all phases of flight with real gains in input response time and subsequent control.
The EFIS in the JPG is a modified OC one. The front panel and its associated push button and LED board are all that's used. The chassis, concentric controls and rotary switches with CNT and TFC buttons are all made and added. The O/C rotary switches, PCB with PIC, rotary encoders with LED power supply board are also removed. The strange coloured back light LEDS also are replaced. The box has no electronics in it, just the bent metal technology making up the switches and buttons. This has enabled the EFIS panels to provide full functionality with Baro selection between inches of mercury and HPA, Radio/Baro selection for Mins, and the missing CNT and TFC buttons now present. The transient suppression capacitors required for rotary encoders are fitted directly to the rear of the encoders because putting them neatly on a PCB a short distance from the encoders caused switching and response errors. All wiring is done with flexible twisted pairs.....the cheapest source, stranded cat 5 with the PVC cover removed.
I will fit it all to my cockpit once it is fully finished and post some more info then.
Cheers, J.G.

Great stuff, JG!

How are you getting on with modifying the OC EFISes, are they working to your satisfaction? Have you already been flying with the setup?  :)

Very difficult, I guess. PSXseecon comes with two font set's with the exact font of the 744. You can set the font size, etc with configuration parameters, but not dynamically.

Hangar 7 / Intercepting radial - video
Last post by andrej - Tue, 4 Jun 2024 09:36
Allow me to share an interesting video on the importance to maintain basic navigational skills and intercepting radial. Although lecture is designed by a B737 pilot (maybe the operator is RYR?), topic is still valid. :-) Also, EUR 20,000 for busting noise infringement in Madrid is quite a big fine.

I voted as well. The more native integrations, the better.
