Multi Purpose Control Display (MPCD)

For the Left & Right DDIs (L/R-DDI), I had purchased the Thrustmaster MFD Panels. I could have purchased another set, and used one of them for the MPCD also. 

But, just for the heck of it, I decided to make one myself.

Since this picture, I added twenty push buttons and two rotary encoders with built-in push switches. I could have added two more rotaries, but made a conscious choice not to do so. I also added a 5mm perspex sheet as the back plate. 

To provide a realistic feel, each push button is also back lit with green LEDs.

The finished MPCD is now mounted on the Front Instrument Panel. Will post pictures in the coming blog posts.
