Flight simulator update

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

After a bit of a hiatus I am getting back to work on my general aviation cockpit simulator. I have circuit boards on order for the instruments so need to get to work on more of those. So far I have an air speed indicator and will probably start on the artificial horizon next. The joystick controller is finished but I need to etch a key matrix board that greatly simplifies hooking up switch inputs. Here are some pictures of my switch panel. The starter switch is a bit of a rough prototype and does not have the right feel so will eventually be rebuilt.
