Parts Notes:
A. These are 1206 SMD LED's. Small but not too difficult to solder. Assuming a 12 V power supply and a desired LED current of 25 mA yelds 300 Ohms for each 2 LED's in series. LED Resistor Calculator
B. Also 1206 SMD sized elements, not hard to solder.
C. This is also an SMD part, but they are not small and not difficult to solder.



Instructions to follow

Will include complete dimensions, cutting diagrams and a pattern to create and etch the PCB with either the photo paper transfer or development process.

Sim Objectives
(Revised June 2016)

1. Immersive. To be fully immersive, the sim will need to be enclosed and provide multiple environment views.

2. Portable. The ability to move the sim with components fitting through standard doors. The enclosure will have to be modular with a maximum width of 32 inches per module.

3. Samll Footprint. I don't want the sim to take up an entire room. Will make every effort to have the entire sim enclosure fit on a sheet for 4 ft x 8 ft plywood. This will necessitate a single seat, half cockpit sim.

4. Functional, in substantial conformance with the processes and procedures of the real aircraft.

5. Accuracy. While some sim builders hold to a very high standard of accuracy and scale, my goal will be the appearance of accuracy is sufficient. Where deviations from scale are necessary, they are acceptable.
