The replica standby / wet compass is made to suit the Boeing 737NG and is compatible with other Boeing variants. The standby / wet compass is used within the cockpit as a backup navigational display to indicate heading and is found centrally at the bottom of the overhead panel. This item has been carefully produced to match the original dimensions, and is therefore 1:1 scale. The unit is driven with a stepper motor and therefore is plug and play once the built in motor is connected to your favourite servo card (not included) and calibrated.
The unit features the bracket housing which allows for easy installation in just minutes using the pre-drilled mouting holes, and its adjustable bracket allows full adjustment for optimum viewing. With built in backlighting, night or day you will never risk veering off course again!
The wet compass is a standby unit in a variety of aircraft including Boeing and general aviation, and therefore it may be possible to obtain the unit is alternative colour schemes subject to payment of a surcharge.
Everyone has their own favourite ways to connect and control this type of unit. Our 'Product Data Sheet' (just under the price above ) gives one suggestion. ( we offer no technical support )
