    Cool Hi to everyone!

    Hello

    My name is Bruno Chávez, I'm from Monterrey, México, I'm not a pilot, but I love the flight simulators, and I want to create my own cockpit cessna 172...

    I know is a really hard work, but I hope I can do it...

    I want to know where I need to start... I have all the map of the cockpit created with wood, but this is easy, the hard job will be the instruments... LOL

    Regards to everyone...

    Cessna 172

    Hi...

    That's are great.. this instruments are cool.... but, I know I'm crazy... but I'm studyng and reading a lot... LOL but I want to create any of the instruments, I think that if I will create a cessna 172 cockpit, then I will create all I can, if not, then, I will buy everything, connect to the sim and play... but I think that this is no really the best for me... I want to start constructing the instruments, because the panel is in process... then I want to know if you know where I can find some diagrams for the instruments... Me and a friend who is electronic engenieer, we are working in this... What do you think??

    Regards...
    Bruno Chavez

    I think if you want to build your own instruments you need Mike Powell's book!

    Personally, I think that if you are able you should try your best to buy at the least the Artificial Horizon, because that is going to be a hard instrument to build without a lot of info and help (I would think) and if possible, buy them all as kits and build yourself, but not from scratch. Just my opinion though!

    Have fun, I would like to see any home built instruments.

    Even home-builders use commercially available instruments.
