    G'Day! A Cessna 310L for Melbourne Australia

    G'Day all.
    Rob from Melbourne, Australia.
    Just introducing myself. I am building a Cessna 310L twin. The reason for this-I have a C310 cockpit which I've had for about 15 years and the kids are getting older so I can start. Here is the plan:

    -FS2004
    -Hardware Mjoy16 for flight controls.
    -FSBUSNG for other controls/switches/servos/indicators.
    -All steam gauges
    -Avionics based on Bendix/King (Currently in the process of designing a one PCB which has then entire GA Range incl KX-165NAVCOMx2, ADFx1, DMEx1, Transponderx1, Autopilot, Audiopanel).
    -Interior/switches/upholstery will be based on the real thing.
    -Display-Unknown at this stage.
    -2DOF moving platform with 40-45degrees movement. Debating whether to use a centre mounted universal joint, or a two was gimble giving a 360degree movement.
    -Transportable by trailer.
    -Instructor station which is mounted in a hardcase for transporting. (Will include 1 x screen for FS display and 1 x screen to display interior with 4x infra-red cameras (2 from back to L&R panel, 1 x pilot face, 1 x co-pilot)).

    A large project-YES! but I'm taking baby steps and I'm enjoying the outcomes. I'll post some pictures shortly.
    Regards to all.
