The FD270AID, 5″ Flipper Cockpit LCD provides an excellent opportunity to bring EVS video, satellite weather, or any other VGA Composite source into the cockpit with a low-profile, stowing display.
The FD270AID features a “face-out” display, which the pilot would open 90° to be viewed. The FD270AID is available in top or bottom mount configurations. The units are also available in gray or black.
The Detached Electronics Box (“DEB”) allows the half-inch thick LCD to be mounted anywhere in the cockpit. The DEB contains essential graphics circuitry critical to the operation of the FD270AID. The cabling between the DEB and the LCD contains two break-plugs, and should not be cut or extended. There is no degradation of image quality or input sources in this configuration.
The FD270AID uses a torsion spring, which deploys the unit up from the mounting plate when opened. It also has an extended power button which enables the unit to automatically turn off upon closing. (Note: The unit does not automatically power on, and should be on when closed in order to turn off automatically.)
