Hey Francois,

You're totally on the right track, keeping going and you'll most definitely get there!

Thanks for your cheering folks, I truly appreciate it.

Did some more work today, re-thinking the panel yet again. I also got more info on the actual measurements of a Baron cockpit. I was putting the panel up way too high it appears.

Also, I cut the old panel in half, and ,measured and cut the holes for the navigation equipment and radioes. Am putting in a Garmin 750 GTN (just bought the RealsimGear product) and a bunch of GoFlight modules.

The left part needs to be redone, because my monitor could not accommodate the proper size.
So now I decided to sacrifice my photo monitor (which is 27") to put the AirManager gauges on.
And I need to recut the left part, making it bigger to cover the monitor.

This will make the width of the cockpit slightly larger than the real one, but hey, I am old and will have enough trouble getting in and out already  ;D

I also changed the trial setup again. Done away with the second tv screen. Will concentrate on the panel and making it all work, before worrying about the display(s).

Have an issue with the yoke, but will put that in another thread!

Thnks for reading and watching my fumbling here  ;D  ;D
Best regards,
Francois

On hold flying for a little while till I can pull out my TQ and  figure out what caused my electrical burning smell.  Starting to save for a new TQ.  Jason, how's your CFY TQ working out? 

In the meantime, I spent the last couple weeks building a new free sim parts classified ad web site, but for more than just flight sim parts.  I won't advertise it here but if you're interested PM me or contact me through my site in my sig block.  I could use some help testing to work out the remaining kinks.

Very nice website (AND simulator) indeed. Your sim career started the same as mine, sitting on the roof of Dd's car watching the Connies at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, back in 1957 or so.....
Best regards,
Francois

Thanks Francois!  I really hope it becomes useful to the community.

I wish I had been able to watch Connies come and go.  One of the most beautiful aircraft ever made, next to the Concorde maybe, which I was lucky enough to get to watch occasionally fly over the house from JFK.  I miss that.

I'm happy with it in my basic testing but my sim is still a couple months off from being fully functional if I can keep focusing on it every weekend

Made some more progress during the past week. Got the old GoFlight modules working on FSX, straight out of the box. On XPlane unfortunately they don't work yet..... seems like I have to program each one of them with SpadNext.

Also cut out new left half of the panel, new size for the larger monitor that I will use for the AirManager gauges.

Last but not least I added the new RealsimGear GTN 750 into the panel.

Alas, it doesn't work yet in any of my sims (FSX, XPlane, MSFS)..... for some reason it doesn't react to the touch .... the rotary knobs DO work....
Best regards,
Francois

That's what I love about this site, you can have a GA small simulator project or a real jet fighter, and both are on the same level from the members point of view....

We have the same respect for each other like real pilots do; as in it doesn't matter what you fly, just that you fly. Or, doesn't matter what simulator you build, just that you build it.

Thanks for the pics guys, keep'em coming  8)

I worked super hard today and I think I might have over done things I used a drill battery operated  would have been too much effort to use electric  put up a ladder and placed sign it was so tiring I gave up count on the metal screws  so I caved and watched Netflix

jackpilot

Yep
Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again !

Good one Bernard.
