Default My A-10C preparation

I've been researching on the A-10C. Info for the A-10 is limited, especially the C version. Since I've been away for a year and missed out on building the Black Shark, I've decided to do the up and coming A-10C, which is my favourite plane in Lock On anyway. Buying the Modern Hog Guide really helps.

Currently I have limited space till I move next month, so I can't build any pit. So I decided to focus on the components on the side panels, which is a lot of work, finding the knobs, 'inventing' some of my own, deciding on the angle (30 or 45 or 90 degress) and the number of positions for the rotary switches etc.

I started by printing the panels and stick them on cheap cardboard as a prototype, to figure out the dimensions, layout, spacing etc. So this is what I have so far. I even have to put these two below the dining table for space.

You need to remove the TVM control head behind the LASTE panel.

Besides the print outs on the cardboard, I added a few toggles (most two positions, some are three position types), push buttons, a few knobs which have 30 degree rotary switch or potentiometer below them. I've ordered the 45 degrees rotary switches, which are the majority of rotary switches required. The cool thing is that these have many positions and are not fixed, you can set the number of stops easily.

More detailed pics.

Hi Wags, good to hear from you. I thought the TVM is behind the LASTE panel.

There is no TVM in the C model.

Pardon my ignorance Wags, when you say TVM do you mean the panel highlighted in red below?

I followed the layout of the picture below, so the order looks right, unless you are talking about another panel.

Oh I see. That was from the released A-10C preview pictures several months ago, so I thought it was the most updated pit configuration. Wow, even that is outdated.

Thanks for the info. I look forward to more updated pictures of the A-10C cockpit next year.
