My neighbor and I have been plugging away at the software side of the sim. I
have done some of the sheeting but may leave the sides open for making the
wire runs easier.
I found a Logitech Extreme Pro joy stick ( with USB) at Goodwill for $5. We
adopted an extension on it and it will work perfectly as a floor mounted joy
stick in the cockpit. I also found a nice folding boat seat that will work
as the cockpit seat for those long flights.
I will use an ACER screen for the cockpit display of the "round gauges",
programmed to work with IL-2.
The ACER screen will be cut to fit as an overlay onto the sim instrument
