Caravelle Simulator
« on: February 28, 2015, 10:37:35 AM »
Dear all,
though I subscribed to this forum already a while back it is now that I want to introduce myself.
I am Nils, 32 years old and grown up in France and now living in southern Germany near the alps.
Since November 2012 I am restoring a real 1960 SE210 Caravelle jetliner into a fully working fixed base Caravelle simulator.
The cockpit is basically restored in and outside and 70% of all gauges have been interfaced or converted for simulator use using stepper motors from the automobile industry. Though I get help for rebuilding the gauges I am doing most of the work myself. The entire system is based on custom made boards that interact with opencockpits SIOC software - which so far seems to work fine. SIOC gets its offsets from X Plane via UIPCX (not to be confused XPUIPC) which is a very powerful tool allowing to acccess all datarefs and commands.

Some gauges are now being send in to the DC-9 project in the Check republic. These guys know how to interface old gauges and 4 RMIs from Sperry are currently being worked on.  They are using Arduino cards to interface the gauges.  This is my main problem right now. Most gauges from the old Caravelles are from Sperry and to interface them it would be helpful to have the manuals which seem to be next to impossible to find...any ideas?

More info on the Caravelle project can be found in the youtube documentary

or on www.facebook.com/flycaravelle

I hope to contribute to this forum. As an airline pilot myself flying A330 I would be delighted to help others that have questions regarding Airbus (A320, A330 and A340 and Fokker 100) or flying.

Kind regards
Nils
