MIP IOcard and mother Card
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:03:13 PM »
Hi All,  just starting my 737NG MIP!   I ordered my MIP from Cockpitsimparts.com along with the Full MIP SWITCHES & KNOBS KIT.  Just seeing what IO and mother cards/boards to use.  I would love to go with Prosim on the software side but I have no choice at this point to go with Project Magenta because of cost.  I don't know why Prosim tripled their price on the new version but it's just too much for me at the time and point, I guess I should have bought in Dec.  I am sure there are some cards better than others so I thought I would ask.

Thanks guys!

Brian

 CHEAP = Arduino Con is you have to do the programming.

Expensive = FlightDeckSolutions Interface but its easy to use

Middle of the road (For Switches) - Something like leo Bodnar Joystick cards - Programmed through FSUIPC.

Middle of the Road for LED Outputs ( Phidgets LED64 cards)

POKEYS CARDS ARE ALSO A GOOD CHEAP OPTION

You need to decide what you can or are willing to do / learn.

Thanks Trev.  While I am in IT I am not a programmer.  But I can learn it,  the thing is do I want too?  LOL
