It is cleaner than the old configuration...and it will be easier to do maintenance jobs.

Lighted up:







We also plugged the push-buttons in the USB Keyboard card and we tried to keep cables clean...





There are still flying cables...but the most difficult work was done...

We still have to assemble SAITEK module again, recode Opencockpits Outputs and try a final test...
