    FSX Com/Nav radio and Landing Gear Panel

    As promised, here are my projects for my simpit. First was the Com/Nav radio. It uses 2 displays, a 6-position switch, and rotary encoder. I built it but the credit goes to Jim for Link2FS and Fess_ter for the coding and motivation. My Com/Nav radio is loosely based off the ARC-159 out of the F-14 Tomcat. Most of my time in FSX is spent simulating tactical Naval Aviation. Eventually I would like to have something resembling the cockpit of an F-14 but we'll see how far the wife will let me take it Here is my Landing Gear panel

    That Gear Panel looks good.
    The radio ain't half bad either.

    Re: FSX Com/Nav radio and Landing Gear Panel

    Nice stuff evvatc ,,, it's great to see the outcome of what we do (well what you've done) and it looks great.

    Sort of like a disease tho ,, first a couple switch's ,, then a couple of displays ,, next your hooked

    Thanks again evvatc ,,, ROF (Retired old fart)

    my wife has found some new plastic paper, the print quality is amazing on a laser jet, not so good on a inkjet ill find out what its called, finish is a satin one so no need for laminating!
