Jet330 MCDU Update

Jet330 MCDU Update

Captain Horgan has made significant progress in his MCDU conversion project. Using a genuine Thales/Honeywell MCDU, he has been able to interface it directly with Jeehell FMGS. No disassembly of the original MCDU is required. It looks like only a few more bugs need to be ironed out. Fantastic work. Check out his Facebook page … Continue reading

ADIRS Arduino LCD Display Interfacing

Peter Fuss has informed me of a program which simplifies interfacing an Arduino display with Jeehell FMGS. The software by Peter Piper is designed to be used to simulate the ADIRS display panel by reading the data and sys  switch from the avionics overhead panel and outputting appropriately. More information available on the FlightX forum … Continue reading

Output Amplifier Load Testing

Initial load testing of the Output Amplifier DMOS transistors indicates an acceptable temperature of 35 ° C after 15 minutes when each transistors are running at maximum throughput (8 outputs for each array, approximately 1.6 amps if outputting to an aircraft panel operating at 5V). You would never run all outputs in the all on … Continue reading

Painting the trim

Painting the trim

When you are dealing with aircraft trim over 15 years old it may not be in the most optimal condition. You would expect to find scratches, chipped paint, blemishes, and faded colours on the trim. On the top lip of the acquired FO side console trim liner a considerable amount of paint plaster was chipped … Continue reading

Output Amplifier Boards – Success

Output Amplifier Boards – Success

Initial testing of the Arduino Output Amplifier shield boards has been successful – outputs from an Arduino Mega board can be controlled with MobiFlight and drive incandescent bulbs found in genuine Aircraft Panels. These boards are plug and play, and can be placed directly onto the Arduino Mega 2560 R3 allowing you to have access … Continue reading
