Prototypes

Prototypes specific to the Howto:C172P Panel Project will be listed here.

Generic Prototypes from the Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototyping will get a link on this page if they apply to the C172.

Prototype Project Page Description Status
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for Switch Banks using Microchip MCP23S17 A Switch Bank supporting 256 on/off switches can be constructed using two Microchip MCP23S17 devices and 16 resistors. Started
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for Numeric Displays using Maxim MAX7219 Numeric displays are used in radios to display Frequency and in DME equipment to display distance or time. This prototype project demonstrates the use of the Maxim MAX7219 chip to display numeric data and explore power requirements for these displays. Started
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172P Pedal and Yoke Mechanical Linkage The prototype will be model of the mecahnical links joining the pilot and co-pilot Yokes and Pedals Proposed
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172P Flaps Control The prototype will be model of the mechanical aspects of the Flaps position selection switch and the mechanism driving the flaps position indicator Proposed
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172P Trim Wheel The prototype will be model of the mechanical aspects of the Trim Wheel the mechanism driving the trim indicator and the feedback necessary to move the trim wheel when controlled by the autopilot Proposed
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172P overall Panel and Console The prototype will be a mock up of the control panel with cutouts for instruments, gauges, radios and yokes. It will include the console with Fuel Selector and Trim Wheel. Proposed
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172P Mixture Control The prototype will work out the mechanics of a vernier for the Mixture control Proposed
Howto:Build your own Panel or Cockpit - Prototype for C172 Gauge Mounting The prototype will work out the mounting hardware lighting and housings for meters used for Fuel, Oil, Electric and EGT gauges in the C172. Proposed
