Since having the EHSI, I praise David (for the idea) and Danny (for his software) and ray's (for sharing his bezel info) aloud anytime I sucessfully intercept a radial  :roll:
that's why I'm always a little bit late lowering the gears. Can't lower it while my arms are up in the air
LMAO!   Both solutions look really great.  I am going with the 3.5" approach too, mainly so that I won't have to modify my real CP.  For me, that more than makes up for the higher cost of the screen. 

Also, the resolution is really high on those little 3.5's from AvionicsLCD (higher than on most 5" screens even!), which was another deciding factor for me, since I'm implementing terrain visualization, moving map, and some synthetic vision functionality in addition to the basic navigation display modes.

Red Dog, if you still have the 5" TV-output maybe I am interested in buying one of them for my RWR. I understood they are ok, just problems working with your ridge, right?

By the way, I notice the TFT fit better in my CP if I place it up-side-down, is it possible to turn 180 the  HSI with FalconGauges?

And now, if you allow me a small kidnapping of your thread I have to ask something to Ray:

The 5 " TFT is actualy 1 mm behind the alu frontplate, just enough space for the wires of the encoders.

Raymond



Can you tell me what encoders you used and where to find them? I need something very tiny that fits in the HSI bezzel and doesn't stick out on the back side. Thanks!

Cheers

Tulkas

Hi Tulkas, lets stop hijacking Red Dog's thread. You can find my HSI solution here:
http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=1062.420
The encoders are from RS (online), the left one: ALPS STEC11B08, the right one ALPS STEC11B04, the right one is with a switch in it, which is used for brightness adjust.

Ill take a look.

Gentlemen I have got the mark Becon head, took me over a year to locate it again, as I accidently sold the 4 I had.

What I want to say to you RD is that if you need the original Light for the mark becon light I have one (its the same as the JFS, EPU run light and the 3 landing gear lights) BUT I have only the head as the run lights have. I have not any spare Mark becon heads.

It was just if you wanted a real light there RD, and someday the head will show up and its just
shifting it then.

Hope you understand.

Ray uses a 5 inch display which is behind the CP and he had to cut through the wood CP. Then he placed his EHSI bezel on top of the opening.
I don't really like that because I feel the difference between the top of the bezel and the screen is too deep.

You're wrong there Olivier, the top of the CP is from 1,5 mm aluminium, so the display is very close to the bezel!
The 5 " TFT is actualy 1 mm behind the alu frontplate, just enough space for the wires of the encoders.

The space between the TFT and the bezel is no problem at all.

The TV-out works perfect with mine and Danny's and is A LOT cheaper than a VGA (paid only $ 50,- for it...)

But i like the 3.5" also a lot !

It's great that we share our ideas and solutions on the forum, so there's always a solution that fits the need.

Raymond
Hey Kukki!
I think you mean Rayman's Marker Beacon, don't you? RD's looks real to me. I have a real lamp with no head so if he doesn't want it, I'll take it.
Warmly lit regards,
Nigel
