    You have done a wonderful job on your throttle quad.

    If you want the cheapest and easiest interface to use for your throttle I suggest.... Ripping apart an old USB Joystick, and connecting the potentiometers from your throttle to the joystick card.

    Register FSUIPC (If you havent already) and you will be up in running in an afternoon.

    Best regards,

    Trevor Hale

    Your throttle looks great! I agree with Trevor a cheap USB joystick is the way to go. And WELCOME to Mycockpit! There is a search in the forums a number of people have used the joystick method and you should be able to find a few ideas on how to go about it.

    I see a very nice MCP panel behind the throttle in the thumbnail. Did you make it yourself, and if so, what technique did you use?

    Tks for replay to everybody
    No the MCP is from Opencockpit
    i will assemble it when i decide the interface to use..so i thing that with only an USB interface isn't impossible to use also a MCP and Nav Radio
    Hi Trevor tks but i have some problems to associate with FSUICP (registered on my name)
    Pheraps i'm not able to do this..
