Just got word my new avionics are shipping.
I think they look good. Will go back for a bendix and an autopilot if they perform as good as they look.
I got the Avionics today and I'm impressed. Very nice build. The casing is plastic and if I would guess probably printed.
The buttons have a firm click feel and knobs have the detents on the DME.
Lettering is great with crisp numbering and printing.
They work with additional software that comes via a link when your parts ship. The software comes in both P3D and XP flavors for each unit. It does a COM search for the port the box is connected to and then ties into FSUIPC.
I was so impressed I placed an order for a King Com / NAV as well as a Garmin GFC600 autopilot. That coupled with a GTN 750 and my stack Avionics stack will be complete at a fraction of some of the bigger names.
The guy building them is Richard Hulme. His business is RH Simtech (https://www.facebook.com/rhsimtech/?eid=ARCl81JmOODhnzl-lB1okcQlx07gFwPCzv4rGvxO7LQjI0_GE-kQ0INTOc_ESjsecmIJFRkJgbZvO-ei&timeline_context_item_type=intro_card_work&timeline_context_item_source=607662987&fref=tag) I found him in one of the cockpit groups on Facebook. Very easy to work with. There is a lead time on the parts but it wasn't long at all.
