Panel Interfacing

Recommended Posts

I would like some advice if possible, regarding FS9.


I am intending to build a basic panel for all rotary encoders, selector switches and other switches such as the AP and EFIS, not elaborate, but just to make it easier than having to use the mouse. I do not require output for LCD's or LED's as the panel display would be adequate.


I have a Project AI A320 model with a Panel by Ken Mitchell, I notice the same panel appears on the A321 in FSX, it appears that some of the rotary encoders and selector switches, also other switches are not identifiable as they are only mouse clicks and not and have no keyboard action. If it is not possible with freeware panels then I would be prepared to purchase a payware model if necessary.


Before I spend time and money on this project I need to know if it is possible to interface the controls and if so how, or is this only possible, or not in FSX. I have perused several sites but I am still unclear if this can be achieved. My intention is to use a Bodnar BU0836, PoKeys or some other interface which appears to be easier than an Arduino.


I have FSX, but I have all the sceneries, airports and other information for FS9 so I would prefer to stay with FS9 at the moment.
