My wife looked at that over my shoulder, smaked me in the head and said "" Don't even go there buddy""

Figured I would change the title and bump this myself. Only one comment so far, so maybe noone really looked this over.

I looked at it....my wife's reaction would be similar to Udidtoo's wife.

I looked at it but checked the wife's local coordinates first after reading Uditoo's post http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ahh, with all the talking about wives here, can I impress a chick when I have a cockpit like this in my bedroom? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This is possibly the best looking (though perhaps not the most functional) home-made pit I've seen. And the guy keeps revamping it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

OMG.........This is in his living room and he`s still married.
I like the idea of converting a keyboard into proper switches ie gear and flaps etc..anybody got any wiring diagrams

these might be of interest to get rid of keyboards

This sort of subject has come up a few times on this thread. My favorite was the guy who went to an auto wrecking yard, and picked up an adjustable bucket seat for his 'pit. He even had a full seatbelt harness!

P.S.

That wife whacking the back of the head thing is the real reason for that thinning hair there, right, guys?

I use the poor mans keyboard. The Nostromo n50.
It does give me over 72 keys to be mapped (18 default - Toggle to RED another 18 - Toggle to GREEN another 18 - Toggle to Blue another 18).

Once you set it up to how you want it (Default for example for when on the ground mooching about the airfield - Airfield Comms, Gear up/down, take off/landing flaps etc).

Then maybe toggle to Red for when navigating/general flying (Next/previous waypoint/Map/etc).

Toggle to Blue when in combat (with your Radio commands Macro'd to each key).

Toggle to Green ... etc.

It certainly beats leaning over the keyboard trying to hit Alt Shift Numpad 6 for example.

Nice pit, I'd like a p-47 though.
