  1. I don't know about outside view, but for the PFD/ND instrumkents a 19" wide monitor is the best solution to give you the right size for these displays (at least in my 737NG cockpit). For the Eicas i have a 15" normal TFT monitor.If you are talking about 737 visit Engravity's site and check forums about MIP and best monitors.RegardsEddie ArmaosAthens - Greece

    If you don't speak and read german language, do not select Fsbus, because there is no support in English speaking forums :-(Fsbus is only one person, working for his cockpit and offering his works to Fs community, but there is no support and many problems are remaining as is for a long period. His software is very friendly and easy to use.In other hand Opencockpit's s/w is more complicated but with more capabilities, a perfect support and you have all the options you want for the electronics: to make them, to buy the pcb's only, to buy all the parts needed or to buy them finished and tested.As George said, make a search in this forum and make your choice.Eddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  3. Yes there is haigh voltage.When i open my first PSONE tft monitor for FMC i saw a warning label about high voltage!Take care!!Eddie

    Aircraft Fasteners Replica

    I made these from aluminium in a local workshop and the quality is perfect. I have many of these and it's easy to order more in case i will need more in the future.regardsEddie Armaosoal331 (@) gmail.comAthens-Greece
  5. I want to share with you, my last good news, about aircraft fasteners replica.I'm a new owner of Engravity's Overhead and it is really an excellent product, i recommend to every 737 cockpit builder.I was looking for the aircraft fasteners replica, but the ones Engravity is selling are out of my budget, for a complete 737NG cockpit, as i need many of them also for AFT overhead, pedestal etc.So i made many of these fasteners, and the result is perfect!! The fasteners are designed for a standard M4 screw and i only have to paint them in Boeing's grey color RAL7011.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/158078.jpgEddie Armaos

    Some progress on my project

    Hello Rob,i saw your work and it's amazing!I admire people can make mechanical constructions.Before 2 years I made sone some of this panels for MCP, EFIS and RADIOS with a laser cut and engrave, but it was more expensive and a had some problems with the paint quality.So, your approach is better because you do the job by yourself and with an one-off investmenet for the dzus, but how you are thinking to do the lettering? By engrave the plexies som-how, or with sticker letters? And how about backlight?Finally your paint is very smooth in the plexi's surface, what kind of paint are you using and how you paint the plexi?best regardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  8. Hi,i will propose to use one TFT monitor 19" wide instead of 2 small 9".This approach is very-very economic as you need one TFT about 200euros and only one VGA out.See here a post i made in engravity's forum about:http://www.737cockpit.com/index2.php?optio...viewtopic&t=241i attached the ACER's specs to check themhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/157456.jpgregardsEddie
  9. In a few days i will have also available the MCP & dual EFIS panels in the same format, as the radios panels. All the needed parts are available in almost all electronic shops.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/152076.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/152078.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/152079.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/152080.jpgBest regardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  10. I made an auction in ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=140004573172 for 6 radio panels for B737NG.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/152050.jpgAll the panels are from 3mm milky plexi, gray painted and engraved from laser.RegardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece

    FSBUS with B737

    Fsbus reads and receives data from Fsuipc standard offsets.All default Fs aircrafs are open to Fsuipc so with Fsbus you can fly them (send & receive data/information).But NOT the payware aircrafts. They are closed or hidden from Fsuipc.So you can use only Project Magenta's s/w, LevelD767 with SDK and Nico's s/w, but NOT PMDG.RegardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  12. Thanks Tuomas,no problems at the moment, so i will follow the rule: "If it works don't try to fix it"!regardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  13. What is the Hardware Sound Acceleration and where is used or not ?In a single VGA system, with one or dual outputs, i will get better fps if this sound's acceleration level is left ?thanksEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  14. I'm waiting for the release of the new Matrox Triple Head, not a VGA but an external box for sending the vga signal to 3 monitors instead the one.Also there is a Dual head version.Check here : http://www.matrox.com/graphics/offhome/gxm.cfmregardsEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece
  15. Go to C:Documents and Settings"USERNEMA"Application DataMicrosoftFS9 and find the fs9.cfglocate the section [sTARTUP] and change the SHOW_OPENING_SCREEN= from 1 to 0like this[sTARTUP]DEMO=0LOADSIM=1LOADWINDOW=1SHOW_OPENING_SCREEN=0STARTUP_DEMO=regardsEddie ArmaosAthens
