    How to interface a real attitude indicator / airspeed?

    Hello everyone! Thinking of starting a new 737-2 project soon, and before I go out and impulse buy everything , I was wondering if someone can guide me how to hook up a real attitude and airspeed indicator from a 737. And no, I have no experience with servo's, interfacing.. Thanks everyone & happy flying!

    But don't you already have an MD-80 MIP? Sounds pretty counterproductive to let that go to waste.

    Hello !

    If you want to use real instruments you have to either use synchro transmitters, hooked up to rc servos or stepper motor. Sioc can be used (open cockpit) to drive them.

    Or using a digital to an analog converter , were you have to generate the signal for the instruments .

    i would not advise converting the instruments because it usually does not end in a realistically moving instrument ........

    its not easy but has the best outcome !
