A friend of mine has created this new project that integrates the A320 FBW mod to physical hardware, a bit more about it below. 

What is OPENA3XX?
OPENA3XX is an ambitious project for all Airbus flight simmers. The project started a couple of weeks ago to build a home affordable Airbus cockpit made of open source tools, hardware, and software. Real Airbus pilots is also consulting to the look & feel, behaviour and functionality! At this point, our goal is to have a DIY cockpit integrated fully with the A320 Flybywire mod in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

When will OPENA3XX will be launched?
It's still early days to mention a target date. OPENA3XX is an ongoing development, and we already made some excellent progress end-to-end from hardware to the software integration point of view. The plan is to start releasing more updates regularly.

How much will it cost?
It's very hard at this point to determine any costs. Our goal is to create a solution without paying thousands of euros. All hardware and software will be open-source under GNU General Public License v3.0, and it will be free for everyone.

Our target architecture is to have all modular cockpit components working with IoT technologies using several Raspberry PI Zeros.

What are we working on right now?
We started working on the MCDU integrated physically (All switches) with the Flybywire mod in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. We have our basic prototype ready, but now we are in the process to create 3d designs which can be 3D printed at home and integrated with our custom boards open to everyone.

More updates soon!
