The tracking system uses software I wrote in Visual Basic (version6). Software runs in the airplane on a tablet PC which I have built into the panel. The tablet gets information from the Dynon D180 and the GPS and sends this data to a server at my office. The tablet has a cell-modem connected to an antenna on the bottom of the plane. On the server is more code I wrote to receive and store the data. The server has a website which can show a visitor a map. The map shows the plane's location, track and route and other data.
Custom instrument panels are now available directly from Zenith Aircraft Company exclusively for Zenith builders and owners. Pre-cut panel, power distribution panel, Approach Fast Stack harnesses, Dynon and Garmin avionics, and more.
Developed specifically for Zenith builders (by a builder) these videos on DVD are a great help in building your own kit plane by providing practical hands-on construction information. Visit HomebuiltHelp.com for the latest DVD titles.
