Flight simulation hardware is too expensive

Recommended Posts

So my plan is to build a homemade flight simulator cockpit. Like they do on YouTube and stuff. I’m 14 years old and I think that’s is the correct age to start a project like this. But it’s so insanely expensive. We are talking 700$ for a freaking radio panel. Is it because the quality is so good? Because I don’t care about that. It could be made out of cardboard as long as it worked. But I want a plug and play, usb. Where can I find hardware on a budget? As I said I’m only 14 years old and I don’t have that much money so I need really cheap components. One thing I wanna say before you say anything. I do not in any way expect a full cockpit done this year. I expect it to be done in around 4 years or something. So that’s nothing to worry about. I know it’s gonna be pretty expensive no matter what. But I have a dream to make the cockpit at the price of around 2500$. Thanks in advance. Any comments are greatly appreciated.
