Air Conditioning Panel

Air Conditioning Panel - A Boeing 737-800 Homecockpit #50

The air conditioning panel is the first panel where I had to work with potentiometers. Because these are not supported by MobiFlight I had to find another way to connect them with the flightsimulator. My choice was an Arduino Pro Micro. This comes with the 32U4 chip and can be recognized by the computer as a joystick. With a library you can define axis and buttons that can be used by windows.

Materials used:

  • 3mm transparent and white acrylic
  • 1 big ON-OFF switch
  • 3 10K potentiometers
  • 1 8 Position rotary switch
  • switch cap build from a molded cap and 8mm aluminum tube
  • 4 Boeing type 1 knob
  • 3 yellow annunciators
  • 4 15 mm hex standoffs
  • 4 30 mm female hex standoffs
  • 4 30 mm male hex standoffs
  • 1 servo motor
  • LED stripes for backlighting mounted on a HDF plate
  • 3mm HDF plate

The download package contains all the files you need to cut out and engrave your own air conditioning panel as well as the cabin temperature gauge.

    Hi Mikey

    Can you link the arduino code for setting the servo to 90 degrees for me; can’t find it anywhere

    Hi Mickey
    When i open the “air cond panel Top.dxf” it opens the top panel for the gauge. Can you check if this is correct?

    Bonjour Michael,
    dans le téléchargement du panel de climatisation je ne trouve pas le panneau avant et le fichier Estlcam.
    je vous re-merci pour ces vidéos j’avance dans mon overhead

    Hello Michael,
    in the download of the air conditioning panel I cannot find the front panel and the Estlcam file.
    I thank you again for these videos I advance in my overhead

      Yes, you are right. I forgot to include the top file of the gauge. Thank you. I don’t include Estlcam files anymore. The file hase been updated now. I’m using a laser now to cut out the panels, so I import the cutting files into another program. And many people don’t use Estlcam or my files because they are using other programs or have to adapt the files anyway to their tools. So there are just the dxf files you can easily import to Estlcam and assign your tools.

  4. Good morning Michael, is it possible to make all your flight deck modules without Prosim?

    • Mickey says:

      Yes, it is. MobiFlight can also send and work with PMDG events. So a solution could be MSFS with PMDG 737 or XPlane with the Zibo 737. MobiFlight is also working with XPlane.
