Check out the Standby Attitude indicator (thats the little blue display in the centre next to the moving map display), even that thing is digital! I take a small amount of comfort know everything requires electrical power! Take me back to the days of gyros powered by suction generated by a venturi 🙂

  1. lol, i would expect lambswool cover at a minimum for the price of these rotating fuglies! Suren, surprisingly there is alot of knobs, but its actually fairly self explanatory 🙂 all available light, however note there is some light spillage from the hangar which you can see on the left seat. other than that the only light is from the cockpit, displays and instruments.
