    My Bendix King Radio Stack

    Hi,

    Here is an update of my Bendix King radio stack.

    The whole radio stack is Bendix King apart from the autopilot which is generic, I have only completed the avionics switch panel, the 2 nav's and 2 comm's.

    The radio stack will display info by using 7 segment displays and OC boards in time.

    Because I cant afford much and to save money I am using single encoders instead of dual encoders, you can do this by using a toggle switch to switch between the frequencies using the same single encoder knob.

    The decal is a screen dump of a software radio stack that was printed on to vinyl and applied to acrylic.

    I will interface the autopilot, dme and adf at a later date!

    Cant wait to put this in my MIP now!

    Nice one!
    Have you thought of using the guts of one of those new saitek radios to interface to FS? (theyre about half the price of goflight as you get 2 radios in one box))

    Hi Steve.

    I did consider this route but if I opened one up and it was all one pcb then I myself would be gutted, as I need to freely position the 7 segment displays, only option that I can think of is OC for now or goflight pcb's if they are still around when I get round to installing the displays!

    Re: My Bendix King Radio Stack

    Good point Alex- was thinking of getting a saitek myself and using some of it to attach to 737 style radio panels (would need to use my own 7 seg displays that are smaller than the saitek ones) i think i might give it a try sometime soon so i'll let you know what i find inside!
