I would like to give a "biased" plug for Leo Lacava and Beta
Innovations. I met Leo on AVSIM's cockpit forum where along with Mike
Powell he is one of the electronic experts.
He is very knowledgeable in electronics and is a sim builder. He is
from Montréal and he seems to believe in developing products that are
high quality and affordable.

Man, neat stuff here.......I like the idea of being able to wire pots
etc into the USB board, I'd always figured I'd be either using a
gameport-to-USB adaptor, or hacking off-the-shelf USB joysticks. The
Plasma would be a much tidier solution. Hmmmm, wondering about those
decoders.......could you just hook these to the USB bus, plug in some
rotary encoders, and get keypresses from them in KB Studio.......? Looks
like maybe they are more for complex custom projects.
GammaRay looks similar in function to Hagstrom units as far as
interfacing toggle switches etc is concerned, no? Gonna have a look at
The prices even look pretty decent. :)
