    Boeing 744 rtp

    Hi there,

    After a month of planning, thinking, reading etc. I've decided to
    start the build of my KLM 744 sim.
    I decided to start off with building the captain's RTP.

    Now, here's my problem:
    I've gathered plenty of knowledge on how to make the panels, do
    backlighting etc. but I have no knowledge of interfacing things to FS...
    Here's my first question (2nd I will ask once I've completed the panel):
    What should I use for the knob to set the freq. in the standby window?
    Is it a pot meter (don't think so) or a rotary encoder?

    Thank in advance for helping me out.

    Wow, a month of planning isn't much to get started, but give it a go if you like.

    The device you are talking about is a rotary encoder.
