Hi Eveeyone! This thing says I'm a newbie, I'm not - I just forgot my log in as it's been a while since I posted here! I was hoping I could reach out to the home cockpit building community here for some advice... I am in the planning and research stages of my dream to build a 737 flight deck with a full surround shell and everything, been delving pretty deep into a lot of stuff and so far have found that I have understood everything I've read ok apart from one thing - interface boards and interface software... it's confusing me ALOT. The general vibe I'm getting is that people are using the BU086X cards or the/ and the FDS SYS1X 2X 3X cards etc. What I don't understand is do you for example have to have an interface card that comes from the same manufacturer as your hardware in order to interface it? So does for example the FDS SYS1X from flit deck solutions only interface products bought from/ branded FDS products? Or like I hope (& will make so much more sense) you can interface any hardware throughout it? - stuff from flight illusion. Cpflight etc? Can't find the answer to this anywhere.... Also - are certain cards good for certain things? Like I read somewhere that the FDS SYS1X is a good option to use to interface an overhead as it has a lot more inputs and outputs? Or is it widely known that any card can be used for any part of the cockpit? Last thing is, can anyone point me in the direction of any tutorials, videos or blogs of how to physically wire spokething into an interface card? I'd really like to see the process of taking a wire from a switch for e.g. And seeing spomeone soulder it into a card and ten interface it in a PC? What in your experience are the best value for money cards? And interface software packages? And do the software packages like FDS INTERFACE IT only work with FDS Cards? Or can the FDS software solution be used to programme any card? Thanks is much for your help! Hoping to gather as much info as I can! See you in the virtual skies! Mitch31388 😁
