Very nice CDU build you have gotten there sir. I seem to recall from the C-130 CDU I have got that they have placed a small piece of foam ring around each button, which then seals to prevent bleed light.

Looking forward to seeing more progress on your pit sir.

Cheers

Thanks for the tip Hansolo, that would help for sure. I may try that on my upcoming UFC build. I fixed some of the CDU light bleed with touch up paint on the buttons and electrical tape around the screen perimeter, and the pictures actually make it look a lot worse than it does in person, so I'm pretty satisfied with it for now. If it works out for the UFC, I'll probably come back and work it into the CDU.



Here is a demo from CDU boot to shutdown:

Spoiler:
0:00 - power-on and boot
0:43 - waiting for telemetry
0:50 - start simulation
1:18 - back lighting
2:40 - go to menu (hold NA1 for 5 seconds)
2:56 - key matrix test
3:28 - quit sim
3:35 - shutdown RPi
