Re: Xbox MSFS 2020

I just wanted to close the loop. I have used the Xbox version of MSFS today, and it is really, really good running the base simulator (much better than when I tried to run it with bootcamp iMac.) Flight control hardware such as yokes needs to have an xbox security chip, so needless to say good cont...

Re: Thinking of buying questions

... If I use multiple raspberry pi's for connecting instruments panels do I need a license for every pi I have? Hi You do not need a license for hardware devices, wheter it is Arduino or Raspberry. You only need one license for each copy of Air Manager/AirPlayer. You can add as many hardware device...

Re: DC6 BMEP gauges

Wow, that image is pure aircraft porn. :shock: :D I cannot fail to absolutely love these types of early cockpits. They are utterly amazing. The DC3 is also out of this world. My total favourite of all time is the 737-200 it looks amazing and feels amazing. There is just something so 'harmonious'. Ad...

Re: Raspberry PICO - incorrect details on Hardware id list.

Hi, Thx, will have a look at this next week. Corjan Hi Corjan, Forgot to mention, GPIO 29 is also not available for usage (ADC3) and is not brought out to the external connectors. It is a VSYS/3 via a simple potential divider input to the 2040 used for basic supply voltage monitoring. They are the ...

Re: Rotary encoders and other with Raspberry Pi and Arduino Mega

HI Detlef, what a superb Mobo - top of the range !. Asrock cheap boards are not the best, but the higher end ones blow away the competition - by far ! - way better than the very best that companies like ASUS etc tend to offer. You already have 13 available USB ports including the internal connectors...

kq2E7LBClnY . VERY well presented and a dedication to the total hypocrisy and attention seeking of idiots like this and why F1 should NEVER allow it. AND , it was posted BEFORE Silverstone. So So true. He didn't even mention 'lie gate' in 2009 ... the comments are excellent. Look at the view and co...

Re: Gazelle

Hi Hugh. A dual PSU is REALLY nice, but a single will ABSOLUTELY do. There are plenty around. If possible, don't go above 30V 3A (5A max) - there are so called '10A units' out there, but the regulation and ripple will , unless you pay a lot of money, be totally shite and totally not needed. Also if ...

Re: Rotary encoders and other with Raspberry Pi and Arduino Mega

Joe, that helps a lot, thank you! I see you are a fan of the Pico already! Regarding the USB hub: I don't mean one inside a PC, but inside my overhead panel, so that I have just one USB cable going to the PC. Regarding a BOOTSEL button. As you say that, it does sound easy enough. I am thinking abou...
