Jodel DR.1050 and DR.1050-M1 Series Aircraft: Panel Layout & Equipment

Layout No. 1 - from F-BJLP s/n 25, built 1960

The following scan from a French version of the aircraft manual was kindly supplied by Jörg Spittler, owner of Jodel DR.1051-M1 F-BJLP s/n 25. The PDF versions are somewhat lower in quality (they are black & white, the Jpegs are greyscale), but the file sizes are also much smaller and they should be easier to print.

This type of instrument panel is installed in my aircraft, D-EHIE, s/n 291, built 1962 by SAN. I think it is rather original in layout, although the location of some instruments has definitely been changed. There was no GPS and no digital EGT in 1962 ... Unfortunately I can not give more information at this time, as Heidi's original manual has not resurfaced yet. And ok, the 'joystick' is not very nice and has already been replaced with a more solid and original installation, ok?
