    Mycockpit.org Cessna 172 - Step by Step Tutorial

    I have documented my work on building a Cessna 172 Cockpit. It is still a work in progress. Check my website for more info.

    Re: Cessna 172 - Step by Step Tutorial

    Very cool website with a lot of great information. I'm glad you gave Air Manager a try. I'm the guy who made the Cessna 172R/S instruments for Air Manager (I'm just a cockpit builder like you, I have no affiliation with Sim Innovations). You did exactly what I was planning to do for my radio stack. Only difference is you actually did it. I only got as far as running some 7-segments from an Arduino and I wrote my own code to get the data from X-plane and send to the arduino. I got that all working I just never went any further with it. I appreciate you sharing the graphics files. I may want to make use of them! Great job overall on your sim.

    Re: Cessna 172 - Step by Step Tutorial

    Great work, compliment. Also I'm building a home cockpit of the C172. My cockpit will have a lower switch panel with starter magnetos switch, all switches for battery, alternator lights etc., the throttle and mixture (here some pictures of my work https://www.dropbox.com/sh/h90vffkas...G3ClNRbfa?dl=0 ). I would realize also the flap mechanism but I don't know how I ca build it.
    I would like to do one like this ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkiqT_6Jcik ), for you how I can do it?
    Thanks and ciao

    Thanks for your nice words. Actually i'm using only Air Manager and I really like them, a great job done there . About the radio stack, i know how it is, it happens to me too Only if i get inspired i just take the tools and start working on it. After all it is a hobby and it costs a lot if we don't do some diy. I will continue with the project as soon as I have time, and next is the GPS unit.

    I took a look at your pictures, you are doing a great job there, and it looks really clean. I'll be building the flaps handle with a servo (for the needle) but i don't have the handle yet so once i find one that looks similar to cessna flaps I will build it and post the pictures on the website. Again your project looks great
