The instrument panel contains the two 15" LCD monitors that
display the instruments. It also contains the switches and rotaries that
control various airplane functions.
In the updated panel module, I have placed most controls at bottom side.
This is a more convenient location than at the top, because when you move
your hand to control a switch at the bottom, you don't block the LCD screen
At the left side are the rotaries and switches for radio adjustment, and
main engine and sim controls.
At the right side are the auto pilot controls and Flaps and Gear. This is
more convenient, as you normally also use your right hand for throttle, and
you hold the yoke with your left hand.
I made new cockpit artwork, with same printing on white A4 sticker paper.
This time I used the same freeware drawing program
RIMU schematic for drawing
the artwork, then copy into Word, scale the drawings and print. The RIMU
file can be found here and the
Word file can be found here.
