    Can anyone recommend the Elite COM/NAV Module AP4000

    Thinking of building up a radio stack and wondered if anyone was using these modules from Elite? Are they any good?

    No clue about the Elite
    If you want to "build" I highly recommend the GoFlight remote kits combined with whatever Radio panels you like. Best bang for the Buck.
    Check Goflightinc.com
    Easy to assemble. bulletproof after that.

    For about $30 more each with shipping, you could get the Collins type from OC.

    Mine shipped today!

    No offence, but I'm not big on the GoFlight modules. I don't like how they have single dials instead of the concentric style like on the Elite ones - but thanks anyway. I guess I should have mentioned that this is for my Cessna C172 sim first

    Michael> Who is this 'OC' you speak of? Open Cockpits?

    Are there any other options? I see that Simkits to a close to 'real' set but thay are hideously expensive, and the FI Collins-style aren't that cheap either. VRinsight do a stack, but it's a bit cheapo looking... Any others?

    Hi Ed,

    1) I do not work for GoFlight ...lol
    2) The Kit HAS a concentric. (see my pic)
    3) The main plus is that you can start with "Real" Cessna radio faceplates and adapt the kit behind. Com, Nav,Xpndr, Adf,
    4) Each unit has two buttons and two leds that allow building a radio management panel at the same time, as they can be programmed (with a click) as ident for Nav, Markers, DME etc....
    That will be all for my sales pitch today!!!!
    Have a great one.
    Jack

    Yes, Open Cockpits. A pair of NAV heads runs $388 with shipping. Collins type.

    Lots of options.

    There is also FDS at over $300 a pop, and one other (who's name escapes me) selling for over $300 each.

    Im not a fan of GoFlight, pretty chunky and not too real looking!

    I love the opencockpits radio:

    Very good price too at 111Euros and very good looking module too (blacklit aswell!)
