Latest project - Flight/Racing Simulator Cockpit

Posted by jwilson56 , 08 October 2014 · 2460 views

Nowplaying is still working fine.

I have been busy working on my virtual cockpit to be used with flight and racing simulators. I decided on building one that would be more universal. This is what I have so far.

39" HDTV monitor

Thrustmaster Warthog Stick and Throttle (also with a home built extension for better precision)

Saitek Combat Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

19" Monitor for displaying extracted gauges for those sims that support it

66 buttons and switches using GP-Wiz40 and BU0836X cards and Xpadder

7 potentiometers for Analog Axis controls such as trim

A cardstock interchangable button template system so labels can quickly be changed for each sim

Il-2 1946 running
