    Nav / com radio recommendations

    Hi all

    As part of my cockpit build I would like to add a Nav / Com Radio to my instrument panel and wondering if anyone has any recommendations and what usb radio panels are available.

    Cheers

    Rhys

    Hi,

    I am using cpflight hardwares (NAV, COM, XPDR, ADF) with my sim a couple of years now....in my opinion they are one of the best for sim builders, but just my opinion of course

    Thanks carlos

    Looked at the cpflight hardwares but they require the main MCP737 to work.

    I am building a helicopter simpit so I need a generic nav\radio and transponder

    Cheers

    Hi Rhys,

    Take a look at Matt Olieman's review of the CockpitsonicUSA USB avionics on the home page. At around $300USD they look good value and there's nothing to do but plug them in.

    I don't have one. But the one I like is the opencockpits plug and play unit. I watched the video, and I like it. I am thinking of using it for a lear45 sim in the future.

    If you are on a budget a GF166 from GO Flight can switch from a COM to a NAV and to a Transponder with just one Unit.
    You can have it as a P&P unit

    or as a kit (no soldering) which allows you to integrate it to your panel(s) the way you want.

    Very good customer service and reliable products.
    I bought 5 that I integrated on 737 panels .very happy with them.

    I'm going to buy two nav radios from them come March. I might even swing the ADF head.

    If you have the original 727 radio heads you can get them alive (digital display of course)
    with a GF remote kit. Did 2 NAV 1COM 1 ADF 1TRX (still missing knobs and display covers)
    The NAV can switch from NAV1 to NAV2 and same for COM
