On a limb here, but I have a full set of Flightlink hardware..... dashboard/yoke, pedals, radio stack.... and an old EPIC ' card' to link them together and to a computer.

But I have not been able to find the software anymore..... there's an old partial webpage somewhere last updated 2012.... but all the other pages don't work anymore.

I guess I can dump the to in the bin, but it seems such a waste !

Anyone know anything about Flightlink interfaces here !!!??
Best regards,
Francois

You're welcome.

Incidentally, I emailed the company (R&R Electronics) to ask if the product was still for sale and supported. I was told it was. I found this difficult to believe because I couldn't find any kind of community around the product. No-one was asking questions about it, no-one was talking about how they were using it.

I'm sure it works well, but it seems like a dead duck to me. Plus, these days the custom EPIC hardware could be replaced by a Raspberry Pi or Arduino, which are cheaper and easier to acquire.

For older stuff like this that uses old interfacing products you can use a website called wayback machine. You can still download the original 2003 epicentre software from flight link or head on to the R@R electronics website for the usb downloads if you need it

It will take you on a bit a goose chase, but for us old timers that have been in this hobby since humans first starting carving animals inside caves, it can be a good trip down memory lane  :D

Thank you both.
I was wondering if I could take the hardware apart and replace the connections to the epic box by an Arduino chip.... The pdf file will help me understand better!
Best regards,
Francois

That would be my suggestion. Epic is old, complicated and expensive when compared to interfacing solutions available today that run natively on win 7 and above.
