Hello folks,

here's a nice virtual cockpit setup I use when playing IL-2 46...
it's not that sophisticated but it works perfectly

I'm curious what other virtual pilots come up with, so maybe you can reply with a picture of your setup.

That looks great mate.

I think there's another topic on this very subject where many have posted pictures of their own setups.

Yes. As far as I know, there was a topic like that. Except it is very old.

The Skittles are the most important part, of course. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Good job!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

It occurs to me that you could simplify your rudder pedal design by removing the relevant potentiometer from the stick base and mounting it (via "extension" wires) right to the pulley (or its shaft). All you need to get about right is to have the pulley rotate +/-30 degrees over its allowed extreme. If the current pulley is too large, go with a smaller diameter one.

Then when that potentiometer eventually wears out, you've still got a back-up in the old stick base!

To go even further, how about re-packaging the the old stick's buttons and circuitry in another box, and mount it in an accessible place on the stand near your flight stick? I suspect that this would be more do-able if the stick's base were to be made taller, so that it sits a little above the tops of your thighs.

More controls at the ready, and in an elegant, ergonomic and tidy arrangement! (The "extension" wires would run from the new box down to the pot on the pulley.)

I haven't changed much on mine, but my pics are old. I need to get a few new ones to show some of the little tweaks.
