Pits and More Pits
Hello everyone and welcome to our latest edition of the
Newsletter. There was no Newsletter for September -October as we
were busy recovering files from a computer that failed and
happend to have our Newsletter resources on it. In this issue we
introduce a new product from someone that we have the pleasure
being associated with as an
affiliate. The product is the Series One DIY cockpit plan
set. this is a great project for those who want to go a step
further than the KwikPit and want a enclosed cockpit project.
We'll have more details on this in the next Issue.
We will always try to bring you information from the community and
fellow builders who wish to share with us. In this issue we show
you the great work of one of our KwikPit builders. The builder of the KwikPit in this article is Jose Depina, he has done a fantastic
job of both building and modifying his project. We've added a
few photos of this project to the Gallery as well. If you've completed a KwikPit
feel free to send in pictures so others may admire your work.

Jose Depina's KwikPit
Here we can see

The KwikPit is designed with straight cuts and easy to follow
plans to make it a very easy project for the beginner as well as
those who are skilled in woodworking. Jose mentioned
that our plans were very easy for him to follow.
As you can see,
the finished kwikPit is fantastic and has some
pretty cool modifications. Jose has really thought this project
out. He said one of the things he did was
to cut a hole the size of the CH Yoke so that he could inset
it a couple of inches and make it closer to the Instrument Panel
which allows him to get inside the cockpit. That's a beautiful
46" HDTV for main screen viewing and it looks
great. Jose's instrument monitor is a 15" flat screen, this dual
monitor set up adds a lot to the immersion factor for flight simulating.
We also see Jose has mounted a GoFlight landing gear
panel, a lcd panel and a Saitek switch panel. The
Kwikpit is a great platform for mounting commercial or your
homebuilt switch panels. He has rounded out his setup with a
Saitek HOTAS and a set of CH Pro Pedals.
The kwikPit in action, looks like we have some pretty strong
competition for seat time. Great job Jose, thanks for sharing
your fantastic setup with us.
