Cannon's Pit
« on: November 29, 2015, 06:47:43 AM »
Hi folks!

I'd like to present you my newly finished Viper pit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDwAiIif2eo

A few words...:
This project took me about 3 months of intensive work, from scratch designs to final (flyable) result.
It was not meant to be a 1:1 F16 cockpit replica, because of my available space and financial limitations.
I designed it according to my flying needs, so that I could have quickly a result that would enhance switchology actions, reverting from mouse usage. Reliability was also a factor, so using Leo Bodnar's interface boards (BU0836X, BBI-32) and PoKeys56U (+F4toPokeys) was a well tested scenario.
The timing of FalconBMS 4.33 release was also perfect, mostly because of the callbacks overhaul.
You can find some more photos here:

Finally, some photos of older consoles I've made, which gave me a lot of knowledge:
