    Welcome to Mycockpit.org Ayax. I am sure we all started there. There are many examples you can see in the forums and picture gallery of examples where people with little experience have achieved great things. I am sure you can do so too.

    Mycockpit has a series of podcast, just for new begininers, this podcast talks about simple facts before you start spending money and time on your cockpit, have a look at them, I am sure you will find this useful

    Episode 1
    Episode 2
    Episode 3

    Of course the forum is the most powerful asset of this community, there are many experienced builders who are happy to share their views.

    All the best

    Regards

    Welcome to the madhouse as they say. Can't think of why they say that!

    My sim was in the planning stage and never left paper for years. The amount of research online is huge however you have certainly navigated to the right place here. We can provide all the stuff you need whether it be podcasts, post information, pictures, progress, blogs etc etc.

    We have it all

    Enjoy your build, and any questions just ask

    Re: New simbuilder

    ok, for example

    I will like to begin slowly but with the posibility of grow or expand....

    I will like to begin with something like the SIOC cards from opencockpits, but i dont know anything of the welding, neither i dont know anything of electronics.
    Sometimes when i read these forum IMHO seems that everybody knows a lot. and that sometimes makes me go back and brake my decision of begininng.
    I dont know even wich plataform oc cards utilize: SIOC (OP), FDS mastercards, etc, etc-

    If someone could send me some BASIC !!!! information about what is a RELES??? why volts are importants= how do y make a switch???

    Thnaks for the podcasts vyhab,

    Sorry for my english, it is not the best.

    Best Regards

    Re: New simbuilder

    Believe me Sobaya, nobody knows everything here ( well maybe some ) but collectively the guys and girls here can pretty much help with anything, I started out just like you and im still completely confused with electronics and sioc etc, but i know the answer is just a small post on here away, or a quick look in the search function.
    I couldn't solder (weld) at first but with a half decent iron and a little practice im confident enough to have a go now.
    Take a look at leo bodnars joystick cards in particular the buo836x card. If it is switches you want then this is a great peice of kit.
    http://www.leobodnar.com/ All the wires just "clip into place so no welding!
    Do you have fsuipc? this also opens up a lot of posibilities.

    I'm sure a few other members will chip in with advise and encouragement too.

    Regards Steve

    Re: New simbuilder

    I think that i need a little bit more concise:

    I would like:

    1.- An overhead panel. I am sure that i would never aford a FDS complete panel, buy i think that i can build a OP overhead panel (if i got the abilities)
    2.- 2 PCs with FSX and in netwoek with 4 monitors
    3.- A display unit with 2 monitors and maybe a GO flight MCP

    Regards
