Take your X-Plane 11 experience to new heights with this 3D-printed simulator

Arduino TeamDecember 17th, 2019

Apparently not satisfied with a single PC monitor, aviation enthusiast Ryan H came up with his own custom, 3D-printable cockpit setup for the Garmin G1000 avionics suite. Designed around the X-Plane 11 flight simulator, the system uses a 12.1” LCD panel for flight data along with several additional inputs, all controlled by an Arduino Mega running SimVim firmware.

The auxiliary display/input assemblies interface with the Arduino, enabling it to handle 32 tactile switches plus one standard and five dual rotary encoders via five CD74HC4067 16-channel multiplexers.

Build cost is around $250 per screen. 3D-print files and other information are available on Thingiverse
