Have you asked the manufacture Bernard?  They may be helpful.
Your wife may stab you if you buy a new one, but you could always ask if they know of any old units or spare parts laying around?

Thanks, Fred. I have to say from my initial testing SimSync works fine with P3Dv5.1 HF1, so I will continue to fly with it for a while and see how it goes. Hopefully Simon is OK, as you say, and will re-surface. He's done a great job and it would be a real shame for it to not be completed.

I am steering clear of MSFS until it has feature parity with P3D in terms of display functionality - that is, multiple asymmetric view frustums that can be individually defined. Let alone any of the other missing / broken features. I think it'll be a good couple of years before that happens, if ever.

I know there's a lot of enthusiasm out there about MSFS and yes, the graphics are amazing (though getting less amazing), but from my POV as a cockpit builder, all MSFS is doing is splitting the market and pushing 3PDs to slow down / abandon P3D, and I see MSFS as a regression in many ways back to the days before we had pro-level sims that could be used to build cockpits. It's very clearly designed for the desktop gamer with a monitor and a couple of controllers and that seems to be the only audience they have considered so far. I think our market segment is becoming increasingly poorly served and forgotten about.

Quote from: Ryan on December 30, 2020, 06:49:12 AMHi Boudica,

I'm the guy Trevor was referring to and I'd be interested in grips for the Sikorsky S-76 collective and cyclic. The collectives are different depending on the model of S-76, I'd be interested in the earlier "A" model collective grips.

I'd just need the grips designed, but they would need to match the real specs because all of my control tubes are straight out of a real S-76.

I have real ones and I can send you measurements and detailed photos this weekend if you want to take a look.

I like having the real controls but unfortunately the plastic used to manufacture the real controls degrades over time and smells like vomit as it gasses out, so it would be handy to have some high quality reproductions.

Trevor, thanks for inviting Boudica to join us! I saw the photo Disavowed_Player posted to discord and Boudica's work looks fantastic.

Ryan

Absolutely, let's do this!
