Hello everyone! Recently, I have been amazed by people sharing their builds with me. Last week, I received an amazing email from a high school student in Japan named Taichi Kagoshima.
Taichi has created something amazing - a home cockpit mockup made entirely out of cardboard! He shared that he usually enjoys playing with flight simulators as a hobby and one day, he decided to build a cockpit at home. However, due to lack of time and money, he had to resort to building a mockup using cardboard.
Although it's still a work in progress, Taichi plans to build the sidewalls and throttles in the future. I must say, well done! Your building skills have truly impressed me!
I came across a build that caught my attention on Discord - it was created by MrZe0n and it's the 737DISYIM 3D-printed MCP upgraded to the MAX! What made it stand out was the use of our new Korry's and a laser-engraved faceplate. Additionally, Clayton101 added side stands to make it suitable for desktop use. In my opinion, this is the most advanced version possible for a 3D-printed MCP.
Please note that the current version of the product may require further modifications to make it easily backlightable. However, a new and improved version will soon be available with dedicated PCBs, making it simpler to build.
RobF on Discord has done a fantastic job showcasing the final product. His standalone EFIS unit looks amazing with its elongated case, which likely houses the dedicated Arduino board inside.
I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to everyone who shared their builds with me. It is truly a pleasure to witness my creations come to life in someone else's hands. Among the hundreds of emails we receive, very few people actually take the time to share their completed builds with me. Fortunately, Discord has been an invaluable tool for me to view people's work and to observe others as they assist those who are struggling with their own builds.
Until next time, Karl out!
