First i give you my first experience of build home cockpit. It was a tested model before bought fds solution (software solution) :

Hi everybody,

I come back after a long time without news. I finished for now to mount last module from fds. I made many videos for your enjoy.

FDS is amazing and support too.

Many thanks to you (Jack, Steve, Mark and of course Peter).

Flight from EDDP to LFPO
Troubles with landing gears so i had to prepare a belly landing...

Have a nice enjoy :

FS2004 doesn't simulate belly landing so crash at the end ;-)

Good thing you landed because fuel was real low on the gauges!! not much margin for an alternate ...lol
Just joking
Glad to see your sim that much advanced!
Do you hand-fly the beast too? no MCP no auto-throttle
Tours de piste , vol lent, tout en manuel!!
Try it , tons of fun.
Bravo beau joujou!

Nice, looking forward to it.

From past experience that date will likely slide, but well worth the wait.

Hello

It's been a long time since I did not go back on my page. Brief to tell you that I am a happy man because I just received my pro pedestal from fds

Gorgeous wiring as always, very professional product.

And yes it is almost finished. I 'm lucky , I realize a dream, a passion.

But mostly thank you to my Canadian friends FDS (Peter, Steve, Jack ) and Englishman Mark 'sima) that without their participation , their support and great products I am still playing with a joystick ...

Their product is really up - happiness.

Here are some pictures of the pro pedestal :
