While talking to a co-worker about his RV-7 build, an idea hit me:
Why not develop some kind of open source avionics platform?
Not only address the software side, but the hardware as well.
Indeed, I’m still trying to figure out the exact direction of where I would like to see a project like this go (as in, limit to Primary instruments? Flight directors?), but none the less, I have to start somewhere.
I’ll be posting more as I come up with it, but if you’re interested in assisting or giving ideas, let me know in a comment!
