Hello,

small update,
I've worked on the implementation of my PCB card behind the face plate of the ICP.
First, the face plate is not thick enough compared with the real ICP. More, to have a smooth sensation when pushing the button, I thought that it was a good idea to place small silicone-based rounds behind the buttons.

So I had no choice to place an acrylic plate between the PCB card and the face plate...

here is the result of the work, witch have be done using a router and some elbow-grease  :lol:

Then, I've also worked on the implementation of the thumbwheels. It is a real headache to do, but I like the result. Next step : to place the 3 other wheels, to flush the screws with the metal plate, and to place the thumbwheels behind the backplate of the ICP

It is a real headache to do
Amen
Up to doing that the hardest for me was to fit the throttle arm.
Now thumbwheels took first place :)

Well done Titi

Have a bandit day
