For some time I have been trying to design a practical cockpit for FB pilots.Previous designs have suffered by placing the keyboard in view of the pilot.In my opinion,cockpit controls such as flaps and mixture should remotely access the keyboard when operated by functional controls in the cockpit.Please study the link which outlines my proposals.

I hope this helps

Not wishing to put a dampner on things but does FB actually have a working software interface to drive those gauges ?

I always thought Flight Sim was the only one to do it.

Nice idea though.

Its easier than using mechanical linkages. Learn to solder, the rest will come naturally.

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Specs:
More expensive than the dining set.
Less expensive than the couch.
Smaller than the dishwasher.
Just as noisy as the refridgerator.
Faster than the cars' computer.
Less practical than the car.
Face it, people who put thier computer specs in thier signature are pretty ****ing wierd.

Ummm...nice try. Be sure to send it to BaldieJr. I believe he's finishing an original cockpit of his own.
