My C172 Integrated Gauge Series combine 14 instruments plus many other functions found on the C172 cockpit. The project was started a year ago since I only had seven FIPs at that time. And it was not economical (still true) to put some of the simple instruments each onto standalone FIPs.
However, never stop receiving inquires from friends asking for their standalone versions. So, before moving forward onto twin engines, I will spend some times working on these standalone gauges first. They include:
- Airspeed Indicator
- Attitude Indicator
- Vertical Speed Indicator
- Heading Gyro
- Turn Coordinator
- Wet Compass
The current fuel gauges will be excluded. But HSI is most likely a new member.
Additionally, even though each of these instruments will be put onto a single FIP layout and the composition will be a lot simpler, correlated functions will still be added to each design, when necessary.
The project has just been started. Should any of you have any ideas about what functions to go to which instrument, do send me a note in the Comments section below. I’ll consider pulling them in when appropriate.
