A gift

In a previous video I showed my pedestal mayhem.

When using OpenCockpits MasterCards the number of wires you need for each radio is just astronomic. No less than 30 wires per radio are required. So each side of your pedestal requires at least 100 wires. This sums up to more than 250 wires in your pedestal. No wonder it can get all mixed up is that small compartment. That is why I have switched one of my NAV radios with a USB version. Only one wire is then required per radio.

A fellow builder in Sweden saw that video and felt a sorry for me. He had two Opencockpits USB units laying around collecting dust. And so he offered them to me.

I am all baffeled! This is such a nice gesture.

The ADF radio and the Transponder unit are now mounted in my pedestal – rocking me world.

A huge thank you to you Anders!

About BuildaBoeing

My name is Peter and I live in Denmark.
I am building the cockpit of a Boeing 737 in my basement using my limited skills and inspiration from fellow builders.
I post my progress on this blog and hope it can be an inspiration to others.
