That's what I was hinting at over at the iFly forums when you mentioned you wanted a networkable Overhead Panel, I can't wait for the VRInsight 737 OVHD either. That is an early prototype by the way.

Well...... I have a question that someone might answer. When you purchase a VRInsight product how long is the wait before you receive it? I paid big bucks for the CDU II a week ago and still no panel. When you pay $136.00 for shipping you'd think quick turn on the item. I'm about to call my credit card company and tell them that I never received the item and be done with it.

Considering the time of year a week from Korea is normal, I've had a few items sent from them and the time taken to get from Korea to the UK varies from 5 days to 15. More often than not the place the orders get held up at are UK Customs, they are notoriously slow at times. For that sort of money for delivery you should have a tracking number, what does the tracking info tell you?

Well, that's the fly in the ointment isn't it. The Flightsim Store is where I purchased it. Now they are located in Austraila. They sent me an update stating that the item had been "picked" for delivery. But there is no delivery information about it. So it is comming from the ROK to Austraila then the United States. I posted the details in this forum. Thanks for the quick reply. Makes me feel a little better anyway. ;-) The topic will be VRinsight CDU II if you care to see all the details.

There will be a key mapper for certain, I'm not sure if it will be released straight away or not. That's the main problem with a panel of this type though its not exactly generic and multi purpose is it, although there will be lots of switches to re-use with other aircraft. Reusing the LEDS will be the hard part without SDKs.

I really liked the look of it until I saw the size, it's barely a foot square!

Would be nice if there was a default 737 profile with the overhead logics simulated.

Does the default have any overhead logic? Cant say I've ever bothered trying, the only time I use the default 737 is to test hardware with the default VRi profiles.
