About the project

I sometimes play with Flightgear and I really enjoy it. But operating a plane with only a console and a keyboard is nearly impossible.

I would like to create some hardware external controls with a bunch of microcontrollers and real switches/screens.

This project will try to show you how you can build such physical controls...

Functional prototypes

Future projects

I would like to emulate the following controls:

  • KX165 which is a COM/NAV radio controler.
  • KR87 which is an ADF radio controler.
  • KMA20 which is an audio panel and ILS console.
  • KAP140 which is an AutoPilot.

Those console are emulated for the Cessna c172p of Flightgear.
