Make your F16 ICP for under $20


Recommended Posts

Hello,


I am currently developing cockpits to be able to fly VR with the positioning of the controls at real scale.
I have chosen for the moment 2 aircraft, the F16 and the F5.
I wish to use only microswitches and a few potentiometers to operate my panels with the idea of optimizing the cost and the space taken by the whole.


The whole unit is driven by Arduino, entirely realizable with a 3D printer and with the minimum of soldering. There is no PCB to make, a system based on 3D printing and self-adhesive copper tracks allows to quickly and easily make the different instruments.
The first one to be built and functional is the ICP of the F-16, here are pictures of the finished product, which costs less than 20 dollars for the ICP without the HUD case.

Less than $20 vs. almost $400 for the Viper Gear ICP? Is the engraving that $$$?

I don't know, but with 3D printer and a little work, you have a functionnal ICP 😉

Engraving is not the only difference...

Of course, it is not the same finish, it is an alternative for those who want to be able to equip themselves at a lower cost. As I fly in VR, this is enough for my needs. 😉
