Has anyone tried this, I want for the time being to use a 15" monitor which width wise fits perfectly to show eicas and vor/compass guages But is still too high and interferes with the above switches.

So i was thinking of cutting out a section on the stand the same as on the captains panel to lower the screen below my stand.

Will this weaken the centre stand?

Kind regards

Steve

Usually a 15" screen (Which has to be 4:3, not 16:9) will only fit in there if you remove the casing. Generally. Smile But hey, we are sim builders. We modify everything! Smile

Yes, its 4.3 and the casing is off and it covers the eicas and bottom
two guages.(i use fsxpand for standby and eicas)

I know i should really be using a 10inch or so monitor with hardware
guages but not an option at the moment.

I will be looking at doing this today so will advise if the mip falls apart,
im sure engravity will sell me another cte stand if it fails but hopefully it wont.

Happy building
