Cowl flaps on slider
Mixture on slider (multiples)
Multiple throttles
Multiple prop pitch

I'm about to order a 16-axis/64-button USB controller for my cockpit. I sure would like to put more stuff on those extra sliders.

Thanks!!!!1

Build a man a fire, keep him warm for a day...

Set a man on fire, keep him warm for the rest of his life.

Check out http://www.betainnovations.com/

More importantly, look for the 'plasma'
( specs @ http://www.betainnovations.com/hardware/plasma.html )

I'm going to build my own controls using this.

Baldie I take back every bad thing I've said about you. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The Plasma Mini-Me is everything I've been looking for. You could knock out an awesome control box in an afternoon with that thing.

Ahhh, my dream of the perfect CEM control box might come true. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I hear that once a week. Most people just take me the wrong way.

Anyways...

On the Axis-front, I expect to have a total of 20 axis available. Most will go unused in FB, but in other sims, I'll probably wish I had more http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm hoping to finish the project by April, but life has thrown me enough curve-balls that I expect to never really finish the thing.

Some of the stuff I'm doing:
Full controlls with psuedo-realistic placement (I'm kinda modelling the 'pit after a P40, but I'm not trying to make it accurate... just functional and affordable).
45 degree motion sim (pitch/ roll +/- 45 degrees).
3 monitors for wing-tip to wing-tip view.
Audio actuators to handle vibrations and such.
Force-feedback modified to modulate the motion platform (give a jolt on touchdown, cannon fire, and bullet strikes).
Head tracking.
A barf-bag http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Why? Because its cheaper than a pilots license and I get to shoot stuff.

Dunno about the cost of a steel version... the pictures I posted are of a one-off custom.

You can get the plans for a PVC version, minus the top/sides. Its basicly a chair that moves when you move the stick. Plans are like.. $30 I think. The cost to build is $300-$400, but could be cheaper if you're good at scrounging and such.

I like the steel version with the top. I'm going to take the planes over to a machine shop and see what they charge to do it, but with a few minor modifications (I need room for the controlls and two extra LCD's).

I'm guessing one could be had for less than $1,000, and even cheaper if you're resourcefull.
