putting hinges on pie panels, logic displays

More work on my dome, I have been putting hinges on the pie panels at the top, all except the one with the HP and the periscope one will have hinges. I know in the movie the saber launcher one retracts inward, but sorry that’s just too hard 😛 Mine will just hinge up and out like the rest. Also I dunno if this is screen accurate, but the top circle panel I will probably have swing out towards the top HP, just to have the extra mounting space for the hinge and servo on the back of that panel. again I’ll say it, simple engineering is more important to me than screen accuracy 🙂

I recieved my mcmaster hinges today, and have installed 2 tonight. I have to line them up and then put a 1/8″ spacer on the bottom of the pie panel, then I just have superglued the hinges on. I’ll see how well that holds. I hope to avoid a mechanical fastener to avoid screw holes in the dome 😛

Also have soldered in the LEDs on my two FLDs

Up till now the LEDs were just places int he holes, but not soldered in, so I soldered them. Still have to do the RLD. In that pic the right FLD is scrolling the word “HELLO” and the left one “WORLD”. That is the test sketch for the Ardu-D2 teeces logics library 🙂
