contact Pegasus, he knows the exact angles :)

Thanks for the tip JJ ... I know that Pegasus is very busy and I would not disturb him to ask questions, as well because, the Consoles I'm building from me and do not buy from him!!  :-[

As the ICP is indicated as 90, I suppose the angles are relative to the floor.
Otherwise you'll have the icp looking face down...

measures, as wisely said merlin, are taken from the plane (horizon) :thumbsup:

Ok, I got it right but bad expressed!
And as for the point and the anchoring method of the consoles to the CP?
Thanks!

Where you have 50 for the hsi mine is at 45. All of my other measurements are the same. So I guess I am close enough... :thumbsup:

I placed a little to get a station flight a minimum working....









It is not yet fully operational, there are better things to fix, like the MFD that just are not fixed, in fact, the pressure on the keys is not perfect as they have a bit of movement; freetrack makes me damn, often crashes and the movements are not optimal as when I try them on its software and this, in flight, I created quite a few problems; Once seated, they must have with me all you need for the flight, because once sat is difficult to leave the seat with quick movements !!!

As you can still see the top of the monitor 10", I used some putting tools, in the picture there is the DED, the RWR and the indicator of the airbrakes, then I removed the DED and put the fuel flow, the RPM and the NOZ indicator.

I set two configurations of monitors:
1) the only crt monitor from the DVI output (converted to VGA) for use desktop pc;
2) Monitor 22" on DVI output and 10" HDMI (converted to VGA) to use pit.
.... are waiting for a DP/VGA converter to connect even the 5".

Small hardware upgrade .....
I bought a second HD 5770 graphics card used.

For now I have used both the two graphics cards for three monitors
to the pit and the desktop, I'm waiting for the DP extensions
and then install:

graphics card #1:
1) the monitor 22" on DVI output for use pit;
2) the 10" on HDMI/VGA for use pit;
3) the 5" on DP/VGA for use pit.

graphics card #2:
4) the monitor MFD on DVI output for use pit:
5) the monitor MFD on HDMI output for use pit;
*6) the only CRT monitor from the DP/VGA for use desktop PC.
*The monitor crt I can install it on another DVI and switchare through presets if served the sixth video output for the pit!

The 5 "is too bright, unfortunately I can not improve nor it either by direct settings on the monitor nor the catalyst!!

PS:There are standard sizes to be assigned to the instruments via MFDE or adjustment should be done "by eye"!!?
For instrument parts where you see the frame of the monitor I already have a solution that should be pretty good, but will be implemented in future.
