    Newbie to the site. Hi to all !

    Hi all,
    I'm Dave, an engineer who is getting into flight sims. As I am a programmer, mainly inndustrial PLC's and Microchip chips (brilliant devices) I am going to build in the future a 737 cockpit in my spare room! Anyone tried it yet? I will be making all my own instruments and puting the programming skills to use.

    Feel free to contact me, guidelines needed !

    Regards to all

    Hi Dave,
    Welcome to Mycockpit.

    Yep, currently building in the "spare room", as long as I can keep claims on it

    Cheers
    Mike

    Hi Dave, welcome. Very ambitious to build all the instruments yourself. Besides the spare room you must have a lot of spare time

    Keep us posted!

    hi dave.......and welcome
    building in the spare room eh! i remember somewhere in my dark past doing that.
    it then progresses to the den because the spare room is too small and before you know it,
    half the garage is un-useable.
    still it keeps you out of pubs and supermarkets......
    enjoy your project mate and please do keep us updated.....
    regards ... ian
