Hi from Sydney
« on: August 07, 2015, 06:45:50 PM »
Hi all

My name is Danny and I'm from Sydney Australia

My cockpit of a Cessna 172 at the moment is still in its early days ( so i have a lot of questions)
I am good at the construction side of things but the electronics side gets a bit confusing, I have been experimenting with arduino with some success.
I have built some of the frame of the cockpit and one gauge so far (I'll post pics)
As you can see in the pics i have the fortune of having access to a laser cutter so if you need something cut just ask

Thanks Danny

Do not worry too much, programming is still Chinese for many of us.
Cards and softs have become much more user friendly and you will succed.

Here is a link on a french forum (illustrations are self explaining) with a WEALTH of info for a C172
Enjoy

G'day Danny from Perth!!

I have a real C172 fuselage that I will be converting next year, see the pics at my website - http://www.aerosimsolutions.com.au/cessna-172-simulator/ I can measure stuff for you if you want! PM me for my phone number. This real fuse with the interior owes me $1200, much easier than a big construction job, something you might want to consider!

Cheers Gwyn
