The screw holes are the same for mine too.
John made me a copy of the Aux panel from resin, and I had the same problem.
It is also an A model Aux Panel.
I love the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Ferrari F1 of fighter jets.

I love the Viper - a perfect melding of man and machine.

No Stephane,

I said I like the finishing part most. I didn't say it was finished :)
Beside, the finishing part can last very very long  :-\

Hey guys,  I have a question

I decided to externalize some screens to a second computer. At least the central console TFT will be managed through my laptop
After all it's a simple matter of launching F4Glass data server on the falcon machine and F4glass data client on the laptop.

My question is about the 2 smaller MFD TFTs.
I only have one outputs on the laptop, So I can't connect those there, unless I use the S-video output, but even if I do, I can connect only one ...

I will remove the second video card from the Falcon computer. So that will leave me with one DVI-I output.
So that means I could only connect one screen there.
lately, i read that DVI-I can be single or dual?? apparently it means one output may drive two different screen if it supports DUAL...
At this time I  am checking if my Nvidia 8800GT 512 does support the DVI-I DUAL output
In case it does, I suppose I need a splitter cable which apparently is quite difficult to get?
Does all this sound logic?

Another solution I inquired are the USB to VGA adapter, but it seems (and it's quite logic) that at this time those are unable to drive 3D programs

okay,
The main video card (8800GT) has two DUAL DVI-I connectors
One goes to the main screen 'Dell 24" for falcon
The second connector would be used to drive both the MFD screens

DVI-I means that they are Integrated. They can do both digital and analog
DVI-D makes digital only
The difference in connector is the 4 dots around the flat line


I read that DUAL DVI are able to drive two signals, hence making it possible to connect two small TFT (like MFDs) to a sole DVI-I connector?
What i don't get is that if those two signal are one analog (VGA) and another digital (DVI-D) or can be both digital (DVI-D) or both analog (VGA)?
We find a plethora of DVI splitter cable on ebay:


the MFDs TFTs have both a VGA connector.
So I'd prefer to geta male DVI-I to two female VGA but most of those I find seem to be single link.

So far my favourite is this one:
male DVI-I to female DVI-I and female VGA

The cockpit was all light up today - the Viperpit award found its home



Thanks again to all  ;D

The EL sheet package found its home too, after almost 3 months in transit between Fort Wayne and Brussels and back

One of the best pits around ...if I could only talk him into steam gauging that CP. :reading:
Faq1:embedded programs must NEVER return from main()
Faq2:99.9% of UART errors are AVRs not being clocked right
Faq3: If PORTC bits don't seem to work JTAG
probably needs disabling.
Faq4:If using avr-gcc avoid -OO optimisation settings at all costs.
