Gerwin did all the work, I only ordered the G1000's :)

The G1000 version was easier to make. But a steam gauge version is on the roadmap, probably with a monitor behind it. The plan is to make it possible to switch between glass and steam.
I bow oh wise one :P - absolutely !

That would be ace. Glass is 'meh' !

You learn to fly with a garmin. once you have mastered the g1000 etc, and in the world of flight sims where the flight models are pretty much same as same as (unlike what they say on the box) you have flown virtually every cockpit using one, ,, give me VOR, NDB and a real chart, compass and pre-flight planning. :mrgreen: - and of course the Mk1 Eyeball.... :shock: :lol:

HI Ralph,

Do it properly if you are going to use steam gauges. 28BYJ-48 are very reasonable.

Hi Keith, Personally I prefer the X27 series. Made for the job unless a slightly higher torque is required in such as a geared drive altimeter system etc. Easy to convert to constant rotary.
Either one really needs Arduino accelstepper library or similar to make it operate in a realistic way. Both are good, but I prefer the X27 for most gauges.
The 28/48 geared units as you mention are really good units and well worth considering, but, they are still extremely low torque unless driving a needle directly.

All good quality gear though. The X27 you can self home, the 28/48 you cannot which means an external position reference sensor in most cases.

Still great fun to experiment with.
