Installing the old shell

It was my intention to build a new frame. However it is just not getting anywhere…

I have mentioned before that there are different measurements on the SimuJabs shell the mismatches the MarcusPilot measurements. Yesterday I realised the overhead is 6 cm higher on the SimuJabs drawing. When reaching back for a AFT overhead switch 6 centimeters matters.

img_1357In order to get some progress done I started installing my old windows frames yesterday. having them in place I can mound the overhead.

Apart from the structure I am working on getting things working. I can se that many wires has come loose over the last year. So it is a bit of trail and error. But the CDU and lower EICAS startes working yesterday!

A bit of flying is also taking place. Is there a better way to test a 180 degree setup than the Alta (ENAT) visual approach circle on RWY 29?
