LOL. Now that you mention it, it does sound like that. I'm a rookie youtuber, so that seemed like a quick choice of music. I wanted the TopGun song, but did not see it.  :P

Added working RWR display. A little small, but works great for me!



While the pit was down, I also added some wiring harnesses to accomodate 6 more switches (they will go next to the RWR) and 14 more LED lights.

The following is the front console. There is a Win I-Pac Ultimarc hot-glued to the back of the main pushbutton board. The Win I-Pac is the I/O board I use for my pit. It can handle 50+ switches and 96LEDs. I think a rotary switch or 2 also.
