    New homebuilt Ifly737 cockpit

    Hi Guys, I have now completed my (almost) fully functional home built cockpit.
    Every switch, knob and lever that operates in the software I control by hardware.
    Its taken about ten years to get to this point, originally using Project Magenta but when the IFLy 737 Fs9 version came out, I reckoned I could use it and switched over.
    There is still work to do in getting access to the annunciator outputs for the overheads etc. but if you want to see how far I have got and how I did it , this is my website
    http://737-mysim.org.uk/737mysim

    There is a lot more info to go up on the site. I intend to give a complete explanation of everything I did and more importantly how I did it.
    I would appreciate your comments

    Hi,
    The only constructive critisism I can give regarding your website is it needs a lot more photos.
    I am very lazy when it comes to viewing website and prefer to look at pretty pictures rather than read chunks of text.

    Hi Alan, you are right of course. pictures show the story . The plan is to add photos to illustrate all of the construction details as I add more web content.
    The cockpit was and is a time consuming project and updating the web will be, but I want to be able to share my experiences and ideas. I just have to find the time.
    Thanks for your interest, hopefully you will visit agian and see more of the project.
    Mike
