    Custom written software

    Good Day All;
    If you are interested in building your own cockpit, I have recently developed a software program that will directly connect Phidgets to FSX through Simconnect.
    Install the software... purchase your phidget components (www.phidgets.com) and build your servo and/or stepper motor guages.
    I am currently flying an moc-up of my Citabria Panel including Altimeter, Airspeed, VS, G-meter, Turn Coord, Compass, and RPM all of which are run through steppers or hitec servos. Other controls include sliders for throttle, flaps, prop and mixture, switches for lights and com/nav1, an LCD display for Com1 act/sby Nav1 act/sby, and a small joystick for aileron and elevator trim.

    The program can be custom written to your specifications.

    I can be contacted through www.livingskyaerobatics.com I am hoping to have photos posted prior to the 15 of December.

    Requires SimConnect, Microsoft .Net framework, and the phidget library
