I don't know if it is Ok to start this topic in this Forum. However, I want to share with you my 757 mcp panel which I have just finished :)

Thank you very much Mobiflight family because with small costs you help to make our dreams comes true...

I use this with QW 757... Fully compatible :) It wasn't easy but with Mobiflight, nothing is impossible :) Thank you very much Sebastian and also thank you pizman82 for your bright ideas :)... :thumbup:











Photos In Action :)

I didn't buy anything except from Leds, Push buttons (6X6X5 mm 2 pin), 7 segment Max7219, 9mm 7 segment diigit X2, of course Arduino MEGA :)

I designed all the buttons %100 myself. It is my idea. At First, from my google search, I started with the ones in which we use small sticks with push button. However it wasn't practical and I designed a box for the button, I put 1 led and 1 mini push button inside. I also designed a button that fits inside it. Of course, I have 3d printer and I can design myself and use it. After 3 or 4 try, I found the perfect size so I don't need any glue to stick leds or button into the box... :)

Note: I am not an engineer, I am an English lecturer at university. However I am a son of machine engineer, maybe I inherited some engineering skills from him... :P :)

Here you can see the pictures for buttons :)

Thats a great looking MCP, I am also planning on starting to build a MCP for the 757. I am a total beginner when it comes to Electronics.

Did you have access to any tutorials or DIY guides on how to go about, purchasing the correct components and wiring them ?
Request you to share any material that you have, found a few on youtube for the 737, but none for the 757.

Regards
Aj

That's a wonderful project you have done there, very nice. Flying will be a lot of fun now no doubt.

I'm curious how you applied the white texts / labels on the panel ... are you willing to share how you did that?
Always have fun!

Check the "screw" nearby.... Then you see this is a printed picture like a poster....
Thats why you also see the outer frame from the Displays.

this is a cheap solution for the first building. Looks real and verry easy. But sure No Backlight !!
Good Luck !

Ah, yes, thanks for making that clear, it's a printout of a picture of the real thing.

Clever! Alas that won't work for my totally fake panel that looks like nothing real.

I can try to make something in Photoshop.
Always have fun!

Thx to all, and also thx for pizman. Honestly, I didn't look at this part of the forum. Now I saw your comments about my panel. This was my prototype and after that with quality sticker paper I improved it but of course as my friend pizman said there is no backlit but it looks better. If you need any help, I am here and I will check also this page :) :) :)

This is my cockpit nowadays...

Hello my friend, thank you very much...
I made the displays using 2 monitor (19 inch and 17 inch) for MIP and 1 monitor (5 inch) for FMC. I used panel studio to create a 2d panel according to my MIP layout. I resize all the displays so that they match with my MIP. There are 11 displays including FMC screen but I use only 3 undocked view. Thus, there is no big frame hit. With these setup, I get 20 - 30 Frames which is enough for me...

Wow thats a wonderful looking cockpit @bennnozgurum
Its amazing how the displays sits exactly within the MIP, Is that an ipad for the FMC ?
Please do add some snaps of the overhead panel, would be great to see how you re-created that.

I was taking measurements in the cockpit yesterday to recreate something similar at home.
I hope that i can attain something close to this setup

With regards
