Like so many of you I was a bit lost once HC went away and we also lost a lot of resources that had been uploaded over the years that included real aircraft dimensions and so many other tips and tricks from others. Its great to have somewhere to showcase our work again as well as hopefully being able to inspire others to try out some of the tips and tricks we employ that complements our hobby and I am always looking for new ways to do things better!
Thank you Sergio for continuing to grow Helisimmer.com and for starting the forums.
I want to start putting updates from my sim as an when something large’ish changes. I haven’t had a fully functional sim for about a 1.5 years as I totally dismantled my previous one and have been working on all my new bits and bobs.
I use Fusion 360 and a Prusa 3D printer along with a small CNC engraver to produce most of the custom parts that I make and then use a lot of different materials. All the gauges are stepper based and are my own designs with custom artwork. I base the gauges, panels and radio/GPS units on the real world equivalent and reference manufactures drawings to get the sizing right and then cram all the technology into that space.
Happy to answer any questions anybody has on the build and I hope to post updates as regularly as I can.
