Hispapanels FCU

After a bit of a hulabaloo I now have panels for an Airbus FCU, EFIS and MCDU. I didn’t actually order the MCDU, it came accidentally.

I won’t get time to build the MCDU for a while as I want to print a circuit board for it and need a screen, but I have a USBkeys card for when I’m ready.(And, yes I know the buttons are in the wrong place, I only placed them for the photo.)

I have started to construct the FCU. At the moment, the LED displays aren’t connected but I have added the button LEDs. The switches are simple pushbutton switches but the rotary encoders are proper gray type. I have a problem that my stripboard is flexing meaning the buttons in the middle are not being held forward enough to remain in place.
