They look fantastic Jack!

Might motivate me to pull mine out and get them done over the coming winter.

My Xmas present this year - new FDS Rudder Pedals

Finally had the time to install my new babies yesterday. I have to say that I am ecstatic. The FDS Rudder pedals are AWESOME. They installed with ease and are built like a tank. The action is smooth as butter with enough spring tension to let you know you are working them. They center perfectly. All...

Ahhh....nothing like the smell of a brand spankin new FDS MIP! Kinda like that new car smell. Of course in this case they get even better with age and a little smell of JP5! Everytime I go sit in my shell and look at the panels I have to pinch myself. Never in a million years would it have been poss...

Speaking from the experience of having wired my own this is an incredible option and another great innovation! Would have saved me a couple weekends or more of work for sure. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better....FDS does it again.

Great stuff Pete!

Hi, Rev TQ's throttle software is hard coded to write to Sim-A's multi offset at 53DB for certain functions.. Make sure you are using MULTI_FUNCTION=53DB in your sim-a fsuipc ini file first and let me know how you go. Cheers Diego Hey Diego, Are you settled in yet? Would be great to get you going o...

Thanks Pete. Pioneering = Too many late nights! :P I still don't think the pictures convey the whole message... Nat They convey fine for me Nat! :wink: The combination of X-Plane 10, XPUIPC, FDS gear, and FDS/Sim-A Software is a match made in heaven. The ultimate dream come true. I often have to st...

You guys that dont look at the outside of your cockpit are a bit crazy. Every time I preflight I check my cockpit shell, my PC fans, I kick the wheels on the base of my cockpit platform and make sure my wife paid the fuel bill to the electric company. Only and Only then do I fire up the APU and star...

Thanks for your insights Scott. As for getting my A/P Disco switch (yoke) working, I think it will be easier to connect it to my SYS3 card and remove from my FC1 joystick. XPlane doesn't allow for custom button/switch offsets like FSUIPC does (as far as I know) Nat You can add offsets to the XPUIPC...

Great post Nat and thank you again Torsten! My experience so far has been the same. Sim-Avionics is working excellently with XPUIPC and Interfacit. All of my Flight Illusion gauges also work perfect. Before switching from projection to TVs I did run 3 computers and three projectors with each compute...
