    how would you bulid this?

    Hi all, im new here
    I'm not sure if this is the right section to put this in, but I was wandering how you would build and connect ot FSX this item on ebay: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Boeing-73...#ht_812wt_1135
    How much approx would you have to spend to get it connected to FSX, and how much time it would take and how complicated it would be to do. I'm only 15 and $277 AUD is quite expensive for me and i'd have to know all these things before buying. I guessing it would be the same to building those open cockpit MCP's.
    Thanks a lot in advace
    Brad

    Brad,

    There is no electronics or software being offered. What you would get is set of plastic panel fronts, button covers and the backing plates for the panels. You'd still have to buy all the switches and electronics. You might need to purchase interface software as well. The $277 is smallest part of the project cost.

    For an idea of the type of electronics you would need, see the OpenCockpits website http://www.opencockpits.com/
