Welcome at f16simulator.net


This homepage is intended as a presentation of my project - a flightsimulator based on a 1:1 cockpitreplica of the F-16 Falcon - and also give other pitbuilders ideas, tips&tricks and hopefully motivation for their own projects.

The news section is a kind of diary, info/reports has technical details and stories about the project and pictures speaks for itself

I'd be happy if you would sign my guestbook! If you have more detailed questions, you could use the contact page to send me a personal message.

Have fun browsing the page!

Nearly all lamps working
Yess!
Except the CautionPanel all lamp-outputs of the sim are done and working. Last weekend I finished the ELEC and EPU panel:



Days before I managed to get the first 7-segment-displays on the CMDS panel into working state



As soon as the CautionPanel is done, I'll be able to start with the implementation of the analouge gauges.

More LEDs - and videos
The selfsoldered LED-Controller are done at last!
One is already working inside the left console and lights up importand LEDs like the gear lights.



Today I tried to become a movie-maker - the results can be seen on youtube:


Functionality of the magnetic switch




Responsetimes of the DED-LCD



Report at t-online.de
T-Online.de, one of Germany's bigges internet portals, published an article about my simulator :-)

Progress on the right Frontpanel
The right frontpanel has been finished, as I intented to. MFD and DED are fully functioning and display the correct data out of Falcon:





Until I manage to build my physical instruments like ADI, RPM, and so on, these data will be displayed on the two MFD-monitors with FalconGauges.

Now all important data is available at one glance, without having to switch views in the simulation.


The DED Is Working!
The DED (DataEntryDisplay) on the right frontpanel is working!
First I created the case to mount the LCD to the glareshield and now the data transfer from Falcon is running great!
