Recent Cockpit Design Test

Recently we did a test with Bruce Matiya (left; Chuck Sullivan on the right) in attendance, a retired engineer who's worked on helicopters, Air Force 1, a micropump for Mars lander and other systems. He currently runs his son's Formula 1 racing team, and he had some great insights about cockpit design and mobility issues once seated (similar to Formula 1 I am in a confined space, but it's critical for me to reach actuators etc). Today I'm working on 'fairing' the system; securing all wiring and hoses, painting any exposed surfaces black to eliminate visual clutter, and tightening all fittings. The next test will be significant!
