MIP Chrono

The build of the Boeing chrono was really straight forward. And because you need two identical items the MIP panel fills up even faster. The design process took a bit longer because I changed the motor from a X27 to a 28byj-48 and also the zero position switch was changed from an optival sensor to a micro switch.

But at the end I came up with a really solid piece that fits perfectly into the modular system of my homecockpit. And it looks so beautiful!

Used materials for one piece:

  • 3 mm transparent and white acrylic
  • 1 big ON - OFF switch (only needed for the captain side)
  • 2 30 mm hex stand offs
  • LED stripes for backlighting
  • 3 mm HDF board for backlighting
  • 1 28byj-48 stepper motor with ULN2003 driver
  • 1 ultra mini micro switch
  • 2 mm brass rod
  • 2 TM1627 4 digit 7 segment displays

In the download file you will find all the needed files to cut out and engrave your own panel as well as the 3D files to print.

    Hey Mikey, Good Work! Just wondering how much longer it will take to finish this cockpit? Do you have any deadline?

    • Navi says:

      Also I request that you keep all access to these files free as i am building it too and want to keep the piloting cause alive
      I am from other country and dont use PayPal so I cant pay you so please please keep these free

        Sorry, but the files won’t be available for free. I’m investing nearly all of my free time into this. This is time all others can save. So it is only fair.

      No, there is no deadline. It takes as long as it needs. I try to come out regularly with new parts of the cockpit but at the end it is still a hobby.

        Well no worries about it, keep doing your best on this project. But if you ever needed anything related to computer and machine programming in this project later, just comment me on this website, I’ll be ready to help.
