Lookin for info!

I've been tryin to set up OF in the pit and so far so good, However there are a couple things I'm missing callback wise.

Anyone know the callbacks for:

Parking break on / Off (Gear Panel)
FCR On / Off  (Sensor panel)
Alt Release on the Misc panel
Wing/Fusalage Norm/Bright (X light panel)

later folks and thanks in advance!

GETTING CLOSER

Got the sides painted and on
All the back of the pit is wired and ready (aces wired but not interfaced yet)
Brain box is just about ready
still have to hook up the speakes and shaker to the simbox

Thinking about makin a "just big enough" frame around the brain box to hide all the wires (cats in the house).



thats it till Sunday (Bass tourny Sat and wife's out of town for a few days :beer2:  :whistle: )

See yall in the WBY

Well let's see,

Got the pit assembled and working up in the bonus room! 

All monitors working and I'm in the process of programming for both OF and AF.
(think Im gonna start flying OF as my main version) Thanks for the Ccllbacks Dave & Jody

Starting to balance back lighting and run power for the ICP & MFDs

Already starting the refit of the right aux panel to something a little more accurrate,
Time to get the touch-up paint out! ;)







more to come later!
