I am not planning a bigger homecockpit at the moment. I sometimes use 2 android tablets as instrument display.

Waht is the current state of your project ?


Sorry for a veeeery long time for not answering. I have been busy with home underground drain project, building terrace and changing one dieselmotor and all that kind of stuff... + with three children it's not easy to find time. But I am trying to activate again.

Seems like a lot has happened in Flightgear since I've been last used it. There's this 'Phi' thing and that seems to be the new webpanel to create DIY panels for homecockpit.

I already tried to use it but panel window does not seem to work. Google Chrome gives these errors (SenecaII, Ubuntu 16.04, Flightgear 2016.2.1 intalled from saiarcot895 ppa):
Failed to load resource: http://localhost:8080/Fonts/LiberationF ... nFonts.css the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)
and same load error for files:
http://localhost:8080/fg-home/Phi/config.json
http://localhost:8080/Fonts/LiberationF ... nFonts.css

I try to get those working first.

To build a cockpit a have following things already gathered:
- F16 TQS throttle
- F22 PRO flightstick
- Pro stick + pedals
- 17" and 19" monitors
- samsung le40r86bd for visual
- and arduino stuff

Panel does not seem to work when clicked from Phi www-page (http://localhost:8080/#Aircraft/Panel) but when opening "Panel in a browser" window from Flightgear plane menu, they work.

I'm going forward with guide in this topic.

It looks like a method that I used few years a go with webpanel.

Awesome work, I am verrrry new to flightgear. Used to play Microsoft flight sim back when it was in production. So I have arduinos, and am very close to starting a similar build. Can you tell me, did you find inexpensive toggle switches, and if so where?

Thanks
Mike
