Not so very new, but never introduced myself.
My very first computer flight was on a zx spectrum. Once i was invited to visit a flightsimulator at Schiphol. A midnight trip that was. Overdays it was used for real pilots. It was so impressive that since than i had this idea to make at least something that looked like a simulator.
The quest continues now for more than over fifteen years with frustration, dreams, stupid solutions (my simulatorconstruction snappedand cought me once as a mouse in a trap) and now my hope is on Arduino.
Thanks to Jim's link2fs this fantasy of some real knobs and some vibration in the cockpit is within reach.
Originally i am a set designer/builder so its the idea that counts for me and i do realy admire those who can plan, build and engineer a "real" 737.
