Hi Bernard,

We're not criticizing you at all, actually we are admiring your work...be it looking like an ATC Control Console or Star Trek Transporter Room, that means it's a really cool thing! Being an ATC Controller is awesome and having a setup would be great, as well as it being a Star Trek item would be even more awesome. I mean who doesn't love Star Trek...uh, okay...unless you love Star Wars instead...lol!

So no worries mate, you're doing amazing things and we like it  :D

As Bernard said - we are truly enjoying the craftsmanship of your builds. Sorry that our attempt at humor offends anyone. We truly appreciate all the work everyone does to make this such a great hobby. Please keep posting - your ideas and designs will inspire others to step out of the box and try new things.

Well the sim will get a new SSD hard drive today. Fingers crossed! When I installed P3Dv4 I did not see an option to change the directory it would be installed in. Either it was not there or I was in too much of a hurry, probably the case, to look for it. Fast forward to now. 3 days before WorlFlight I purchased Orbx. I came home form Orbx and wanted to install it... Well my tiny little SSD that was my C drive just would not do it. What to do.... I ordered a new SSD that wold more then hold all my Sim stuff and set a path forward for when I start to run out of space again which I will. Cloned the drive last night and am going to install it back into the computer and hit the magic power button.. Wish me luck!

Best of luck Bob,
 
But you know already that the new drive is never going to be big enough... :angel:  ;D

Orbx continues to model the world, now in even higher resolution. The latest UK scenery (TrueEarth GB South) is over 27GB and that's the compressed size before installation. As they expand the areas covered it's going to consume huge amounts of space. So probably not for most folk in this forum, who tend to fly the big tin.

 ;D

Don't forget, cyber Monday is just around the corner...  there will be great deals on SSDs at Newegg, Fry's, and places like that.  They need to get rid of old stock

Progress on getting the 1900 back in the air has been slower than expected. Tonight I'm re-committing to getting one major component re-installed each week.

Tonight the co-pilot yoke went back in. This weekend will be spent re-installing all the linkage to get each yoke connected again.  I miss flying her!

Well the hard drive clone went very well. Installing Orbx, not so well! lol I am sure this is another self inflicted issue. If I tinker I can get it all working but the minute I say, buy a new airport and install it, the sim is broke again. If I go and try to move to another airport or try and load a different flight P3D crashes to the desktop. This is a scenery issue for sure. Well see if I can get a band aid on it today, with Trevor's help as in the next 2 months I am building a new computer and I will have to do a new build on all the sim software anyway. Oh, how much do I love this hobby???  :P

Yes Joe, I do know how ever big of a drive I bought, it would have never been big enough! But you will notice I did build a moving forward plan into this scenario!  :laugh:

Wire in the overhead console
New side panels
Finish rear cab

Not today, but this weekend I have interfaced the 2.0 version of my ADI.
I have update the arduino mega to an Arduino Due, which is really fast!. And I have improved my scripts for comunication fsuipc <-> arduino  and some other updates in the code.
Very happy with the result. Smooth and reponsive.

And I am doing some code lines to simulate the startup sequence of a vacuum ADI. Arduino Due is fast, and I can use real vibration equations and link them with vacuum gyro speed. Testing it:

I LOVE Arduino Due!! bye bye mega.
