• DIY General Aviation Home Cockpit

    New Product from Roger Dodger Aviation

    Roger Dodger Aviation published a new Do-It-Yourself video. The DIY General Aviation Home Cockpit includes a step-by-step guide for building a desktop cockpit framework using materials from a hardware store and your existing flight simulator controls. The instructions also show how to easily modify a standard keyboard to resemble a control panel from a Cessna 172. The finished General Aviation Home Cockpit frame is built from PVC pipe. It elevates your monitor and provides a place to mount the modified keyboard. The instructional package can be purchased as a download.

    The General Aviation (GA) Home Cockpit Bundle is great for flight sim pilots that fly GA airplanes like the FSX default Cessna 172. The videos and instruction manuals show you how to build a desktop frame to elevate your keyboards and monitor. Modify a keyboard to simulate a Cessna 172 panel: complete instructions and printable button labels. If you upgrade to a Saitek switch panel, simply move the keyboard mod to the side frame and continue to use the buttons that aren't on the Saitek panel.
