Someone has to get there first. RD got a plaque for 100k, Ray and I didnt even get noticed. You deserve another one for 200K. Olivier, you are the King! For all the FNG's you should read this thread in it's entirety. There are so many things you can learn that will save you big chunks of time out of your life. I admit that I get frustrated when I read a question from a member that has been answered if they just read the forum. These build threads are one of our best resources. I know I keep saying it but when I joined I literally read every post in every thread. It was drinking from a firehose but I feel I took a big leap ahead on how to approach building a pit by reading this thread, Jay's, Ray's... I could go on and on. Sadly some of the best are now gone due to the lunacy of...well I won't bring it up here.
   I'll say again a big thanks to you, Olivier for sharing the techniques and many pics that were such a HUGE help to me in the beginning and all throughout my build. it really never ends though, does it? I look forward to getting an email notice that you have a new post in your build thread.
   Some of you may not realize that RD is a beta tester for BMS and one of the best contributors to making it what it is today.

Back in 2006 I discovered Viperpits looking for information to put together a few buttons to make an ICP to fly Falcon. Then I saw this damned thread.

Shit! This guy is building a F16 cockpit with MDF and it looks totally real!!! I want to do that too!!!! The rest is history  ;D

Not to mention the charts, BMS dash 1, IFR manual, weapons range, etc... all that has really taken Falcon to a absolute new level for many of us! For the 200K a propose not a plaque but a momument  ;D

Cheers

Thanks Dave :)
All has been done with real pleasure trying to repay the debt the even older heads offered me when I needed it.
If the new guys take over that philosophy I'll be the happiest builder around :)

I think the view count have been messed up with one of the past forum crash.
I still look at the 100K plaque quite often with a touch of pride. I have been honored  enough with that very nice present a few years ago and I wish that the honour is made to another great builder on this forum for the 200.000 view hit.

So just consider my thread as "display only" and let it go unnoticed like your and Ray's 100.000 hits

This is awesome. Red Dog, you don't realize the real influence of your work. You are changing people's lifes. I am not sure I'd get where I am with this hobby if not several e-mails exchanged with you years ago. You never ignored any one of them, even though you must receive a LOT of questions :) Thank you for the GREAT, GREAT job, man. You are one of this community's icons.
I agree regarding the monument! :)

Yea, sorry guys, not unnoticed..lack of time and the forum had long ago outpaced the single admin load.... I have some helpers now and we will do a better job of tracking things and following through. 200k, well..how do we top that one? another plaque? Will a star work?  ;) You're right Olivier, I think the view count is more and the reset screwed it. The admin will review the view counts and award accordingly. We also will discuss if there are other categories etc.. we can recognise. Apologies to all for not getting awards to the deserved guys, we will do better..

Edit:to clarify, this response if for Nigel and Raymond and other also

it's been a while i didn't add anything to the pit but lately i got a request from a friend to build a quick and dirty desktop cockpit.
having a couple pairs of TM MFD and the old USB keyboard from Pi Engineering as ICP, i agreed to give it a quick build.

the stuff is really simple and took me no more than a weekend's work. it's all MDF (8 and 3mm)
the idea was to simply provide 2 MFDs (TM), an ICP and by using a Logitech G15, a screen for the DED.
That was all required items for this small desktop pit.



It was nice to be back into building for a week end :)
