This weekend I was able to get the final bits of wiring done on the Throttle Bay and began programming all the inputs. As of last night I was able to get everything setup in FSUIPC in P3D V4 except for the FMC keys. I’ll need to use opencockpits SIOC for that, so that’ll be this weeks project.
Of course it wasn’t until I was programming the toggle switches I noticed I have the “off” and “on” labels for the logo and collision lights reversed. Whoops.
I was hoping to make some progress on the MIP wiring but I ended up running out of wire, so that’s on hold till my reorder of wire arrives this week.
So in the mean time I started working on a overhead panel project. For this panel I was thinking rather than having all the text and such etched on the panel directly, I’d create a printed overlay with it all along with some colored panels. This way the panel could just be made with the cutouts for indicators and switches, cutting it’s cost by 50%. It’s an early look at the photoshop file for the overlay.
