JetMax SKTQ Assembly

Ah yes, I have started to assemble the FDS Jetmax SKTQ Single-Seater cockpit. I will write up a full page article on it soon, but in short, it is pretty damn nice.

It is well made, but obviously not as exacting or detailed as the $100,000 cockpits can provide.

It did have quite the adventure while being shipped via DHL which caused some damage and missing bits, but FDS-Jetmax were more than helpful in getting it all straightened out.

The following are a few pictures showing a bit more progress over the next 3-4 days. First up, the glareshield supports are in place.

Next up, the bezels, pots, switches, gauges, AFDS, annunicators, tiller, and engraved panels are getting into place and the wiring has begun.

Next up, the monitors got mounted, the knobs are all in place, the CDU and throttle quadrant are settled in. Time for some power and lighting tests. It should be noted in the image below, the panel backlighting is custom and is not included in the normal JetMax product.

I have since completed the JetMax and wrote a lengthy review up on it. Check it out if you are interested!

See the full review!
