How did you make the ALS?

I'm afraid I don't know what the ALS is. Would you please explain?

So now that starters are done, I'd like to share with you the coolest thing I ever did:



I have been working on the ADI for about 3 years now. Yes, it is (almost) fully functional: the 4 flags, roll/pitch, ILS bars and internal lighting are working. External dimensions are 1:1, so I should be able to put it in a real center pedestal should I ever get one :D The knob allows for pitch adjustments.

More to follow (as soon as I am able to shoot a correct video of the instrument working).

@Seeky

You and @Katurbo should talk!  It seems that both of you are working on identical projects.  Check out this thread:

Hi mate,

ALS is the Ambient Light Sensor. The round yellow-purple sensor on the top of the ICP.

Awesome looking ADI there dude.  :thumbsup:

The ALS (thanks for the acronym!) is made of a 3 mm plexiglas disk. I initialy painted it with golden paint on the backside. I however replaced it with blue-ish ink to model the reflections on the real stuff.

My ADI was feeling lonely, so I gave him a little brother:

Amazing! Both ALS way and the SAI!
Is it interfaced with BMS? If so, only with BMS or did you add additional real behaviour like the 4° nose up offset after aligning?

It is! As is the ADI. I'm hoping to do a quick video as soon as I can.
I didn't know about the +4° thing, care to expand?
What I currently know is that the SAI is fixed on an offset mount that I reproduced.
