F18 Hornet UFC Part 3

So my F18 Hornet UFC PCB’s Arrived yesterday YAY!
I made a few rookie mistakes, not allowing enough clearance for the pots with connectors but nothing to catastrophic as I can just solder the cables direct to the board. V2 will fix that.

I am a bit short on time at the moment, but I was keen to get this lit up.

I went through and put the top plate on, Next up was putting the buttons on (the bottom aren’t going on just yet as I need to work out the Bezel first before I commit to that) and lit it up, yep works a treat.

Next was some quick and dirty DCSBIOS coding to enable the scratchpad, voila

The 4 Option LED is just a placeholder to check the size, I am not doing anything with those until the base unit is fully up and running and Hopefully by then my stock of this will have arrived and I can begin desiging the boards.

For the channel Displays I have something in the works as well, but that one may come later than the options..

Next up I am working on the Bezels, and then the enclosure.

Spread the love
