Sismo Soluciones IRS Display Unit (ISDU)

Today my Sismo Soluciones IRS Display Unit (ISDU) arrived from Spain.   I ordered via FedEx and it got here to Texas in about 5 days, very well packaged and with no damage that I could see. Originally I was going to build the IRS using the parts and panels I already had from my CockpitSimParts …
