    Fully build and wired is not a problem. We sell them (flyengravity) and so do the other major vendors (FDS, CS, etc).

    The problem will be the "pmdg compatibility" you state.

    Although its possible to interface the switches of the pmdg overhead with workarounds like key2mouse, it is impossible to interface the displays, rotaries, annunciators and gauges.

    You will need PMsystems for that, and even then not everything will work as in the real aircraft.

    Please note however that purchasing a fully build setup will substantially raise the price with any of the above mentioned vendors as building, wiring, interfacing and configuring takes alot of time.

    PMsystems brings you pretty close. Most part is functional. Some of the gauges are functional at the moment with hardware, some are not. But PMsystems is improving and i have no doubt it will offer all we wish in the future.

    Some builders have accomplished some nice work using SIOC but that would mean alot of configuring and programming and thats not what you look for.

    "the real thing" as you call it, can only be found in the real thing .

    But we get pretty close here

    You would need to email Project Magenta for current pricing of their software. However off hand, you can expect in and around the $1500 USD mark for the PM Boeing suite. (PFD/ND/EICAS/MCP/CDU, and PMsystems)

    and a multitude of that for a completely build, wired and interfaced overhead with hardware gauges.

    Prices would vary enormously depending on your wishes: with or without hardware gauges, backlit or not, consumer grade switches or mill spec aviation switches, etc.

    Best for a quote on that is to mail us (or any of the other above mentioned vendors) for a quote.
