This page will answer some frequently asked questions about my build and building a sim like this in general.  There are so many different ways to build a sim like this.  Everyone has a unique situation, so my way is by no means a “right” way, just “a way”.  This is just based on my experience thus far.

I’ll try to add more FAQ’s over time and as people ask me questions I feel may be beneficial to you all.

    Thank you for a most informative site!
    Do you know of a source for sim panel faces and enclosures (the instrument face and a box to attach it to). I am good at soldering/electronics, but cannot justify the expense of a 3D printer and/or a laser cutter. I would like to build com, nav and AP boxes but cannot afford the prices of the commercial units.
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks again.

      Hi Rod, much appreciated! Unfortunately I don’t know of anyone who can make custom panels off-hand, though I’m certain there’s someone out there who does it. I would suggest asking on the CockpitBuilders forum (https://www.cockpitbuilders.com). No doubt someone there will be able to point you in the right direction. I’d be interested to know as well.
