Custom Cockpit with Go Flight or home made modules

Recommended Posts

Good day, all. Looking for a few quick answers.

 

First, I've been looking at Go Flight pannels and have noticed how expensive they are, if you include the racks.

 

So, one thing I was considering is, once I have a place to put the thing and the money to buy the materials, I thought I might cut costs by custom building my racks. I wonder if this would even be possible.

 

Or, if this wasn't an option, I was wondering how easy it would be to create panels of my own, so that I can have a one person flight deck-enclosed for my purposes- and not take up incredible amounts of space.

 

Please, if someone could answer this for me, I would appreciate it.

It is not really that difficult to build your own panels. I have a one person B-17 based enclosed cockpit that is five feet wide by seven feet long. I could have made it five feet long as well if I needed to.

 

If you are flying a complicated airliner, the panels are more difficult with rotary encoders etc...but it is still not that difficult.

 

Here is a post documenting my build that may help you with some ideas.
