    diy multi radio

    So i was kicking around the idea of building my own multi radio. reason being i am limited to the number of displays i have avail. i was wondering if anyone has done this and if so if they could point me in the direction of some examples. im thinking of combining com1 and ILS. oh yeah i fly the level d too.
    Thanks
    Tim

    Hi Tim, I am at the same stage as you. What software you are using? MSFS, X-Plane? I have now very good results with Teensy ++ board and Arduino. I use 7-segment displays controlled with MAX7219 chips, very straight forward. So far I have just make the connection with X-Plane, because no extra stuff needed. I will research the way to connect to FSX or FS9.

    Hi Tim,
    If your flying Level-D767 the easiest and cheapest way forward is using Opencockpits hardware, Opencockpits SIOC (free) and my free lekseecon program for the link with the Level-D (in FS9, FSX or Prepar3D).
    rgrds,
