    It is finally done

    Just my autopilot..the sim will NEVER be complete. It has been functional for over a year, just put the finishing touches on it. Let me know what you think. And it has my new GoFlight module perched on top of it.

    sorry about the size.

    sweet

    That looks like a real airplane part, good job.

    Two things...is the white switch below the flight director a "pitch bending wheel" out of an electronic keyboard?

    And if I may ask...how have you set up the "GPS" button? I have been fighting the "Toggle GPS drives NAV1" function but can't get a 2 posision switch to work like up=nav down=gps.

    The word "done" really does have a different meaning when we talk about flight simulators, doesn't it?

    Great work!

    The "white switch" below the FD button is a VSI wheel out of real autopilot unit i scrapped out and hooked into a pot (The FD switch came from the same unit).

    The GPS switch is hooked into the NAV/GPS offset, which i cant remeber exactly what the offset is. It illuminates when the Nav mode is linked to the GPS and is off when it is on NAV1. It works just like a 0,1 switch. 0=Nav, and 1=GPS (might be vie versa)

    All the switches are backlit Korry MILSPEC switches that came from Lockheed.
