Barry LaBarre's KwikPit
Here's great KwikPit built from the kit.
was built by Barry LaBarre. We can see he's done a fantastic job
and added some great custom touches. Here is a description by
Barry. "The equipment I am using is all Saitek; consisting of a
Cyborg keyboard, flight yoke, throttle quadrant and rudder
pedals. I painted the PIT with oil base paint. First I primed
all pieces with two coats of white primer, then I painted the
PIT black and silver; I sanded lightly between coats and put
three coats of paint on the Pit. The only modifications I made
was to raise the keyboard up some and extend the yoke support
shelf because the Saitek yoke is deeper in length than a CH
products yoke and it attaches different.
and putting the PIT together took me one week to complete. I am
using a 12 Volt converter and bought two blue and two red LED
flexible light strips; I mounted the blue LED's on each side of
the control panel and the two red LED light strips underneath
the control panel one on each side. I fly Microsoft FSX and
also fly some with X-Plane 9".
Thanks Barry for the photos and
build description. You've done a fantastic job on your KwikPit!
