That red ribbon in the image below is the forward limit of 52 control column travel.
In this early design, the customer liked the radio placement for ergonomics, however the right hand knob on the GTR 250 would have got wiped off as you can see below..
Anyone who tells you this stuff can be done with 2D CAD is holding one hand behind their back with their fingers crossed. Why risk costly disappointment?
The blank 52 billet panel comes with two repro knobs and new brackets ( sorry, no new drop pins yet), leaving you free to design and cut your own layout.
If you'd like 3D design help, please give us a call at 619 933-2571. CAD models of all the Chinese and Russian instruments are available as well as most of the popular American avionics.
Why settle for flat sheet metal ?
