OMSCHRIJVING

The avionics pedestal’ (After Electronic panel) is the container or storage space, between the cockpitstoelen, in which the various avionics (radio modules) are housed.

To the cost a little bit to express and also that it is quite easy to decide to build I have decided to do-it-yourself material again.

I want to by the way will be my GoFlight modules to use and a ready-made product does not lend itself to these modules to build. Everything is good, then the radio modules to build from CPFlight.

 

CONSTRUCTION AND DIMENSIONS

To the cost a little bit to express and also that it is quite easy to decide to build I have decided to do-it-yourself material again.

I want to by the way will be my GoFlight modules to use and a ready-made product does not lend itself to these modules to build. Everything is good, then the radio modules to build from CPFlight or FlightIllusion.

What material ?

  • 2 MDF-panels of 6 mm thickness (61 cm x 122 cm)(Brico);
  • 3 m on wooden slats (18 mm x 18 mm) (Brico);
  • 60 chipboard screws with countersunk head (4 mm x 25 mm) (Brico);
  • 1 m Alu L-profile (10 mm x 10 mm) (Pelthout);
  • 2 Alu-panels of 0.5 mm thickness (each a 13.2 cm x 47.3 cm) (Legerstock Achel).

.

2 wooden slats (18 mm x 18 mm) to the front and back of the sides glued.
Also on the plate is to the front and back, 2 pieces glued together.

The necessary holes are drilled in the front for the fitting of the handle, fuses, inbouwbus plug handmic (Pass Address), and inbouwbus jack (Interphone).
For the holes for the fuses, I have a wood drill bit used No 13.
Nr 12 for the inbouwbus jack and No 16 for the inbouwbus plug handmic.

The front and back will be against the 2 sides glued together.

 

At the bottom of the sides and the sides of the base plate are also wooden slats glued to later the curved aluminium panels to confirm. Here must take into account the slats +- 1 mm to the inside to confirm (the alu-plates are 0.5 mm thick). So they can strive in the conditioned uitspraringen.

All the glued pieces are from the inside even more fastened with chipboard screws with countersunk head (4 mm x 25 mm). One should be careful that the screws are not too deep to be screwed in so that she doesn't come out. The length of a screw (25 mm) is actually 1 mm too long.

At the top of the sides I have a aluminium L-profile mounted on 10 mm x 10 mm. This is the wooden top panel to lie in which the radio modules are built in. These alu-profiles can also be used for attaching e.g. radio modules from CPFlight.

The two openings at the bottom (arc 90 mm)can be closed with a curved aluminium plates of 0.5 mm (132 mm x 475 mm).

These alu plates, I have to fold in a curved profile with a full of Cava-a bottle that was waiting for the Christmas meal. The alu-plate is on a flat hard surface and with the curvature of the bottle is the alu-plate rolled and bent to the desired result.

What a Cava bottle yet can serve ...

.

For the construction of the receptacle for the’ Fire Panel’ is the same method of application. At the front and back of both sides are slats, glued and subsequently anchored with chipboard screws. Then, the back attached.

Afterwards the whole through the inside of the avionics pedestal attached to the pedestal, and this also with chipboard screws.

All the crevices and not conditioned, the holes are then dichtgesmeerd with houtplamuur.

Afterwards, everything is smooth sanded (paper P280) and the corners rounded.

Meanwhile, I have the surplus that I had lying of the aluminum plates used for the floor, the edge of the board cut for the avionics pedestal. This alu-board is 2 mm thick. Everything is so precisely measured over the entire length (3 sides of the pedestal), taking into account the plooilijnen on the back. The sawn board I have a couple of MDF panels made and hand-pleated, precisely on the plooinaad. This was pretty easy despite the 2 mm thickness. And everything fits perfectly !

I have then the holes drilled where the screws need to come out. The hole I have subsequently extra drilled out with a larger board so that the screw is completely plated in the drilled hole. The screws are chipboard screws (4 x 16) and out of the Range.

All is afterwards equipped with 2 coats of primer – Levis Universal primer. Between the 2 coats of primer is lightly sand with fine sandpaper (P280).

 

After the 2 coats of primer, it is the turn to the finishing of the avionics-pedestal. Also here, first, lightly sand with fine sandpaper for the paint to it. The lacquer layers are applied with a verfrollertje with fine hairs to be beautiful work.

Also between coats of lacquer, lightly sand.

For the wooden part, I use SIGMA Tigron Soft -white paint with a gray tint and soft satin (Code : RAL 9002). For the metal board is a matt Levisverf – Boeing grey (same as MIP) code ACC R6.06.30.

All the paint I purchased at Deckers Interior in Overpelt.

If there are 2 coats of lacquer, and on one can start with the finer work, namely the finish as the placing of the metal board, handle, fuses, inbouwbus plug handmic (Pass Address), and inbouwbus jack (Interphone) and not to forget the stickers or placards. The plugs and fuses I have met with Electronic Parts Hamont. The microphone I had lying in the attic of my CB radio.
The stickers I make In-t in Overpelt. The stickers was a tip of Rudy Danese.

 

On the top is a wooden MDF panel (6 mm in Boeing gray). Herein, the GoFlight modules built in. This wooden panel resting on the L-profiles of the sides and therefore easy to remove. The Fire panel is +- 25 mm below the edge and on both sides finished with a L-profile of 10 mm. On the edges of the L-profiles are 2 DZUS replicas will be placed. Only for the show and have no acknowledgement function.
