Don't look at the entire pan sitting next to you full, just eat one hot dog at a time.At the end of the day, you need to be happy with what you have, take things little by little and then build on it. Don;t try to program the whole cockpit, start with one switch and copy paste until you get 2 and so on.We are always here to offer answers to specific questions and it is like vatsim.. take things bit by bit and overcome the mistakes and difficult times, and you will be successful.Thanks for stopping by.Trev

Quote from: GyverX on December 20, 2018, 02:37:24 AMMy advise is allways the same for a start up Cockpit. Makes notes. Write down things your will need. and sketchup will be helpful on building your plan with the room you have. As far as interfacing XP11 with your sim, I would give this website a look over to help you get started in that Direction.Sketchup >https://www.sketchup.com/ main site. I would recommend the 2017 version as it is a download app and not a web interface.https://www.sketchup.com/download/allSimVim > http://www.simvim.com/This is the main site and the main starting point. Go from there for your interface.Dont forget to share your progress report and pictures and the most important advise to give is, no question is to stupid.ThanksJason

Arduino interfaces are cheap and learning to code them is pretty easy with some sample code from the internet.I am on my 4th simulator in the 20 years and every one gets better and better. Budget builds are possible.Pick up a 3d PRINTER also if you can, will save you some coin as well printing stuff yourself.Trev
Quote from: GyverX on December 21, 2018, 01:54:31 AMAs a term that is used often, "Throw the Ardim to the curb!" Actually, You soon find out that Simvim is Ardsim. Simvim is the successor. Its a 2 man group Father son if memory serves. But The site has lots of info on set up and what not.
