Agreed. You're better off going to one of those sites that provides the toggles and all that as a package that you assemble yourself. If I'm paying that much, I want at least a fake APU EGT and Press gauge inset. Even if it doesn't swing the needle, the paint just looks cheap.

Agree with everyone on that. I'll build you better for that price (way better). It doesn't even have any analog gauges. My overhead was as real as it gets and that's now over 10 years old. Makes that one look like a toy ("Made by Mattel").I used Flight Deck Solutions panels in the long run (many others were tested and trashed due to craptastic backlighting and incorrect cut outs).

If I had thousands of dollars to spend, and a suitable basement...They do some great work, though. There's a basement sim right up the road from me that we use for WorldFlight every year that uses their stuff.

Opencockpits is very good.Here is a fully assembled OH panel, complete with backlight, gauges, and displays. You can build it yourself for less. Their site has just about everything you'd need to build a full blown 737 cockpit.http://www.opencockpits.com/catalog/overhead-fully-assembled-p-325.htmlOVH1b.jpgovh5s.jpgovh2.jpg

The only problem is you will not be able to use this with the NGX.SDK or no SDK.You will need to find custom software and I wish you luck.Fred.

Isn't that a beauty. Alas just a pipe dream for me since i am now at the 'Condo' stage of my life.Edit. i am obviously reffering to the Opencockpits Overhead.

I'm not sure how the toggles show up to the OS, but couldn't you map them using FSUIPC and the keystrokes in the FMC? It'd be a bear without the SDK, but I suppose that's where your custom software comment comes in...

Why would that be? The SDK's gonna let just about anything work provided the company makes drivers or you know how to program them yourself.

I think he was saying currently it's either a custom program, ported through FSUIPC or something, or nothing...until the SDK.
