    CRJ 200 at home - progress of my project

    Dear All,

    From December 2012 I'm working on CRJ-200 home cockpit.

    At the begining I would have only throttle quadrant, but during my work on it, I decided to build something more.

    My cockpit is in fact low-cost project, it means, that most things are hand-made.

    My project based on:
    X-plane 10+
    CRJ-200 by J.Rollon - (great plane!!)
    XHSI (in the future I would like to customize it a little bit for CRJ) or I try to ask my coleaques to write new soft for it,
    input hardware - hand-made: Mjoy16 and Mjoy encoders - in next month I will have three new input plates - DMkeys8 by DAMOS (more in Google )
    output hardware - hand-made: SimOUT XL (Polish project for Simbuilders);
    and temporarly: Saitek Pro flight equipment.

    In the next steps, I would like to build:
    synchronizes Yoke colums;
    seats for captain and F/O with buttkickers (or subwoofers) inside
    More work on panels and hardware
    CDU - in progress

    Now I'm working on Autopilot Panel and CDU.

    I have my blog in Wordpress about this project - I put there description about every updates in my cockpit.

    Here You can find link to gallery - many photos Gallery | crj200athome

    I made also short movie on Youtube from, but last time I made a lot.

    I hope, that I can use some of Your knwledge to my project, and I'm sure, that I can help in many issues I solved yet.

    All I can say is... wow. I only have one panel, and the output's aren't even finished yet. I've already spent about $110. How much has this cost you so far?

    Hello.

    So from the beginning:

    Frame, walls etc. about 130 Euro
    Foamed PVC (painted to grey and formed parts) 50 Euro
    Electronic parts (DIY) 75 Euro
    Existing switches. encoders, and other staff not more than 50 Euro
    Screens - monitors (second hand) include CDU (2x LCD 15", 1xLCD 17", 1x LCD 5,6") 60 Euro
    26 Panels from Plexiglas 80 Euro include cutting, engraving and paint
    Other parts from Plexiglas (like CDU x 2, screen frames and other which I haven't shown yet) 25 Euro
    Construction foam + paint + glue + screws and metal parts - not more than 100 Euro together.

    TOTAL: 570 Euro.
    Additionally
    Tools about 100 Euro.
    Projector (also used, after 470 hours of service) Optoma EX551 - 195 Euro

    Saitek equipment in fact is temporary - before I have started to build cockpit, I bought new: Yoke with quadrant, rudder pedals, A/P panel and switch panel - Together on Polish market there were about 450-500 Euro. In the future I would like to sell it.

    Computer - I have quite powerful laptop, which I bought a half a year before I started to build cockpit - about 1000 Euro

    And of course X-plane and CRJ-200 by J.Rollon costs.

    I'm not replicating anything, because I like to fly everything.

    Re: CRJ 200 at home - progress of my project

    Dear All,

    As usual there were not enough time to make significant progress, because of my work abroad, but I've started to develop some glass cockpit software for CRJ.

    Now my and my colleague from IT have prepared some POC - some IT code, xml's and PNG files.

    Goal is to build user friendly software, easy to edit for CRJ builders or even for other not very common planes.

    Please find below link to my blog, where You can find some screenshots and picture:http://crj200athome.wordpress.com/20...ocpit-project/

    Enjoy
    Leszek
