No need to apologize Mike, I perfectly understand the tight schedule we all have to live with.
Now where's that baseball bat. I'm coming to NY late June and I might hop to Indiana to make you pay  :bat:

triggerhappy,
I really mean it :) You guys really have less tools than we do and I'm really suprised by the level of stuff you get. I have some friends in the french community that builds complete Su-25 cockpits and they get splendid results
(you don't have anything to envy them with your cockpit either :) )
http://www.3rd-wing.net/index.php?s=cddbd828e4da484b2358a7528c1364db&showtopic=5701

As for me, I programmed a layer toggle key for my two Xkeys on an unused cockpit switch (double pole) and I programmed the red Xkey layer for Lomac.
That way, by switching one bat in the cockpit, i toggle between Lomac and Falcon. pretty convenient.
When using Lomac, I also display some gauges through LOVP and/or gauge composer
Utlimately, i may get a crack at Lightning MFD exporter to export the LLTV on the right MFD .... :)

But for now, it's back to Falcon in full swing with some heavy testing, so the SU25T is in the hangar for the moment, but I will get back to it soon....

I agree with you..

There seems to be a gathering of developers in 3rd Wing? LeCreole with hes brand new version of the LOSIOC software. The LOME project. Razorback's KA-50 Pit (eeenvy). Gillesdrone with the su-25. Specnaz with he's Su-27 pit. Gromlich with he's Su-25 pit.. and the list just goes on and on.. 

But I still look to you guys for both information and more importantly INSPIRATION..! And I will keep looking at your work.

PS. MAN I envy your panel building..!

Hello RD,

I was curious if you made your Hud box from scratch or are these real components?  I am mainly looking at the top of the hud?

Thanks for your time and your Vpit looks great!

David.

David,

I was lucky to get my hands on a resin copy of the Hud box that was rejected for too many air bubbles :) it was molded on a real MLU part - don't ask how  :wacko:
it's heavy but nothing beats it.

Needless to say, i'll be forever thankful for that guy  :beer:

Some liking football (soccer) are glued to their TV, I stick with my pit

I spent the last few days making a full ramp start video with Falcon. It's not good but hell, it's a full rampstart from a cockpit. I hope it will motivate you guys to get on with your projects :)
#Invalid YouTube Link#
Again, I'm not very good at video editing, the sound is bad, the camera shakes (no AD you can't stick that beats on your helmet, the FOV isn't wide enough) and I will make it better next time :)
I'll post a better video tomorrow morning (20Megs)

Enjoy

Have a bandit day

I think that is the first full ramp start pit I've seen on here! Great job and accomplishment on your project-  can't wait to see more video!

Later, Cannon

Fantastic Olivier!!! :beer:

The MFD's and the centerconsole look great!

How do you like the MFD extracting software?

See you next week!

Then you can't be here for so long ;)
here's mine, nevertheless it's not quite as impressive as RedDogs (no working MFDs, very dark), but it's working ;)

My thought is to swap the ALT and HSI positions and use Leo's ALT in the lower CP , then move the HSI up to the "glass".  Of coarse this would depend if you are running the Beta Innovations stuff....solution for the practical and not the purest :)
