    Exclamation Throttle box interface

    Hi there, I need some help and guidance. I am currently doing a project at university that requires me to build a throttle box interface for a cirrus aircraft. We are building a simulator. Different students got different parts to build. So we have the bare throttle box of a cirrus. Now i am to build a throttle box interface to connect that barebone throttle box of the cirrus. We are going to run the simulation on Xplane. Now i am super stuck as i need to write a report aswell.. I tried looking for info on how to build a throttle box interface and got nowhere. please i beg anyone to come forward and guide me thru this
    Thanks
    Regards
    Farabi Bin Hai

    You need an interface card. I would recommend (For the Levers) an OpenCockpits USB Axes Card. I have one. It's compact, simple to work with, and will do exactly what you need.

    Oh wow! You have made some impressive progress with that. Yeah, just follow the instructions provided with the Axes Card, it should be pretty straightforward.
