He says he can get everything to work except for the arming switches to light up. Im not sure how to fix this. It should be in the mail soon, says I might stand a better chance finding something that works at radio shack.

^I really like the keys for starting the engines, dont you guys?

Also if you look in the lower right corner, he had superjew engraved into it.

I really like the eject button http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. How many times that button is gonna be pushed accidently when trying to reach for some other button.

From watching some vids posted a while back - i think you have to twist the eject button first to unlock it, then press it. Cool eh ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

that looks like it would slot fairly neatly in the space between throttle and stick, very impressed.

I feel I got a good deal on it at $750. He will have trouble making more with leobodnar.com's site down, he had a spare BU0836 to make mine with though.

He said it wasnt worth his time and effort for the money though. Needs to figure out a way to streamline them and make them more efficiently and cheaper to make a decent profit off them.

heres a video of both flight consoles. I prefer it played with the sound turned down cuz the music is kinda crappy.

I guess there is no way of pleasing the community! Thank god for the MUTE button! I have been talking throughly to find a way to create PCB for the circuitry and create my own controller much like the BU0836. I am really proud of the result in SUPERJEW's project. I would think more of creating more of them after the summer time. He has been a very good motivation (which is getting more clear as i get some rest time).

I hope he enjoys it very much.

Feel free to PM if you need any informations.

Desktop Aviator makes boards that may do the trick.
