    Review of Flight Illusion’s Gauges, by John Miguez (jmig)

    John, has set out to review the well know Flight Illusion Gauges which he has reviewed critically during its installation in his T-38C cockpit. We are sure you will find this review useful and give you John's perspective of FS gauges:

    When I settled on building a T-38C cockpit I knew there would have to be some compromises along the way. The T-38C uses a glass cockpit with mechanical backup gauges. I had hoped that I would be able to closely duplicate the gauges using software that I could modify to meet my needs. This turned out to be only partially true.

    "extended joystick controller” for our “Simulators”



    Last week I have been testing this USB device that can be used as a joystick controller or a full featured USB interface card. It’s a special type of controller that is fully and easy configurable and it makes this device perfectly suitable for connecting different types of hardware. By that I mean, every port can be set as digital input/output or encoder, 5 ports are reserved for analog input or digital in/out. 1 port is reserved for analog out. In addition it also supports 6 high-speed fully configurable PWM (pulse width modulation) outputs. Users can freely set PWM period and PWM duties. The PWM module runs at 12 MHz and allows high-speed switching. Last but not the least interesting is the price setting, you only pay around 1 euro / port, isn’t that great news? What more could we desire than an interface card where we decide what the card should be used for? Shall it be inputs/outputs/analog in or analog out or a mixture of everything, it’s all in your hands!

    It is with pleasure to be asked to review the GNS unit provided by Emuteq. This company is a relatively new business and are focussing on the General Aviation aircraft. I was invited by Steve Masters to test out the new unit, and i've reported my findings/recommendations below. I do stick by my word this is a great piece to add to any light aircraft simbuild. Why not test it out for yourself as a christmas present?

    The Prosim737 suite is a complete set of software tools to build an accurate replication of a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. In combination with Microsoft Flightsimulator 9 or 10, it will allow you to build a simulator that is very close the the real aircraft.
