Hi to all;

For a long time I have been researching for PMDG 737 home cockpits (components, software, panels etc.). For a start I have a plan to build a similar desktop cockpit which can be seen in the link below.

https://secure.simmarket.com/sim-on-solution-boeing-737-mip-desktop-system.phtml

But I will not use PFD and ND screens. Full list that I am planning to build is: Tam olarak listelemek gerekir ise;

- MCP
- EFIS (Captain)
- CDU Left (Captain)
- 2 X NAV Panel
- FLAP Gauge (with Servo) and flap annunciator leds
- Landing Gear Lever and annunciator leds
- Modification of Saitek Throttle to motorized throttle (with Servo ; also Speed Brake will be motorized)

I am following this forum for a long time. But I dont know how to add some pictures. Because of this I will give you youtube links about last conditions of CDU, NAV and MCP below.

Link for CDU test: https://youtu.be/Xhs3VO2ciDk
Link for NAV test: https://youtu.be/yivJJWMMFlg
Link for MCP test: https://youtu.be/bkLwULAcYKw (Only 7 Segment Displays are connected and tested)

Also I need some help about throttle. In forum I found many post about usage of servo and relais. Colud anyone can help me about wiring schematics of servo and relay (I want servo to be powered when A/T is on; by the help of relay). If so I will be very appreciate.

Hi to all;

You can see the picture of my project below.

Last updates;

- NAV panels: All fuctions (buttons, 7 segments, leds, rotaries) working.
- FMC: All fuctions (buttons, leds) working.
- EFIS: All fuctions (buttons, rotaries) working.
- MCP: All fuctions (buttons, 7 segments, leds, rotaries) except MACH display (there is a blinking "0" ZERO while MACH displays on 7 segment) working.
- GEAR lever and annunciator leds not finished yet.
- Modification of Saitek Throttle to motorized throttle not finished yet.

I have made a test flight last night (MCP picture is below form this flight). Only problem is MACH display (displays the correct value with a blinking ZERO); and VS display (it should be blank but it doesnt).
I will solve VS problem by using two configs as written on the forum. But as far as I examined topics; there is no solution for blinking ZERO on MACH display.

In addition, I am still waiting an help about how to connect servo with relay for throttle levers. Colud anyone help me about wiring diagram please?

Hi

I love your autopilot and would like to build this myself. Do you have any schematics available on how to wire this up and a list of parts that u used?
