    Hello from great Switzerland!

    Hello guys! Long time read-only member, I decided to finally say hello!

    Although from Spain, I'm living in Switzerland, and building a full size 737-200ish on basement. My goal is to reuse all nice steam gauges from original 737s using xPlane.

    I have some pics of my setup on my webpage, www.fransedano.net
    Shell is from FDS, and bits & pieces are from ebay mostly. For interfacing all the gauges and controls to xPlane I've made a plugin on xPlane which exports/imports all data using IOCP, and I'm using my own electronics boards, using CANBus to connect them. I have quite a number of them currently working (HSI, Attitude indicator, altimeter, speed indicator..) and working on all the others.

    While I love flying, I love even more building electronics circuits, so the cockpit is always in a non-ready to fly state

    Thanks to all the community here for the great source of information and support you're always giving - This is amazing!

    I really like your setup with all this steam gauges. I guess it is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun with all those real aircraft parts. Keep on your good work and post about your results, that encourages other people to follow. I guess that your knowledge in electronic interfacing for these instruments is worth a lot for others, too.
