The OpenHornet Project is a F/A-18C OFP 13C Lot 20 1:1 Replica Simulator, consisting of a physical structure and electrical/software interfaces to a PC to be driven by Digital Combat Simulator (DCS).
Currently, this repo reflects the project in its current state and is not 100% functional, and all items are subject to change.
ALL ITEMS IN THE MASTER BRANCH SHOULD BE CONSIDERED OUTDATED AND NOT USED. v126.96.36.199-beta1 IS THE LATEST BRANCH.
- ALSO, DO NOT use anything in the release folder. It is outdated as well, and will be replaced as we prepare the beta1 release.
- If you have any questions, visit our Discord server and ask questions.

OpenHornet MCAD Model
All models are in SolidWorks 2019. No models for contribution will be accepted in anything except this format so we don't end up with various components in various software packages and increase the dependencies required.
