Simplified A10-C front panel

Recommended Posts

About a year ago I bought Thrustmaster MFD Cougar pack. It is great device, only stability of the frames is not quite perfect with the standard base. So I decided to replace this base with some holder that would better secure the position of both frames, then I started to think about possible additional functions of this new holder ... Finally it was added in my modest home cockpit what you can see in the photos below.



2 x TM MFD frames (the base and the back side removed)

32 x pushbuttons

5 x rocker switches (ON momentary - OFF permanent - ON momentary)

5 x 3-position switches

6 x 2-position switches

buttons and switches position based on UFC, AHCP and NAV panels in A10-C cockpit

aluminium sheetmetal box

MJOY16 and USB hub inside

You can just stick a 8" Liliput USB monitors on there. But it would jut out to the left and to the right of the console. As you can see the picture below, there is some "dead space" that I covered up. Since you have switches, you would have to mount the MFDs to the right side of the LEFT monitor.


You can also go with panels from Alibaba but that's a little more involved because you have to interface it via HDMI or VGA. The Liliputs are just USB connected monitors. Pretty easy to doublestick tape onto your console.


Either way, very functional setup you have there!

Nicely done I would get a label maker and label everything. Need a couple of little monitors to fit the squares of the mfds
