Hello, Is this documented on-line anywhere? I'm just researching the same project as I'd love to build even just the dials part

+Dick Thomas Keep at it.  I was like you about 2 years back.  It's a great hobby.  And you can build it up just like a model railroad set...a little at a time.  Biggest game-changer is the yoke, then the MCP/EFIS and CDU.  Those are the 'heart and soul' of your deck.  Joysticks just don't give the proper feel (IMHO).

anyone? :)
 
Does anyone near to me have a small flat screen computer monitor or tv they don't need anymore, that I could have?

My only criteria is that it must have an hdmi port. I have an excess of non-hdmi monitors and a raspberry pi that needs hdmi.

Thanks xx

+Paul Williams I know you said you need hdmi input, and I don't know you are based, but I do have a 19" VGA-only flatscreen monitor sat here in Yorkshire doing nothing.  And I'd quite like to clear up some space.

Rotary encoders are very useful little components. In this article I'll explain what they are, and walk through the process of using them to control stuff in X-Plane. If you're not sure exactly wha...

Thanks for that.

I know the in's and out's of getting them working with an Arduino (I have some example code and YouTube videos for reference) but I just couldn't get my Arduino to talk to X-Plane.  :(

Introduction
Personal

I am a geek , a linux geek , photography geek , hell, a generic  geek I love technology and every thing to do with it



Adding me to your circles

the following would be good circles to add me to 

Open Source

My Open source life started with Coral Linux ,I now use almost entirely Open Source / Free software. I advocate Open Source / Free Software when ever possible.

http://www.xpd259.co.uk

Linux

My first experience was Coral Linux in late 1997 because I read about it in a magazine and wanted to try it so I bought a Linux book with a CD-ROM with it, I’ve never been a fan of Windows.

It was a painful experience almost no hardware worked and i was limited to VGA, but it got me interested in free software. I gave up as I had no help with getting things working and lacking a printer or a working Internet connection, having to remember all the details between reboots were impractical.

I didn’t touch Linux again until 2002 when I moved and my next door neighbour was a Gentoo Linux developer and he got me back into Linux and I used Gentoo linux from 2002 till 2008 when I finally gave up on them, wanting a system that just works over what Gentoo offered
Then I used Ubuntu and i’m loving the “it just works” style of it but then unity happened and I dislike unity so I had to find a new Home in the Linux world So I moved to Debian Linux and loving it, even my server is Debian

Music

I mostly Listen to "Free" music from jamendo , Soma.fm covers and Last.fm, I am also learning to play the guitar 


ART
I like to paint in oil and draw with charcoal and pastels but don't feel my work is good enough for display only for personal pleasure. 

I also love Photography and my photo's can be found all over the place but mostly on Flickr but due to a epic data loss on my desktop machine I've lost 100% of my photo's while I was uploading them so most never made it and I have no back up's but I have learnt from this.. back up, back up, back up

Bragging rights
Cooked for Hugh Grant (yes that one) & Family and served him when I was a chef, Chatted to Richard Branson on the phone for 30min about nothing when he was at the virgin radio xmas party

enjoyable day for the family, fun to see the seals and penguins even if they did look a little sad but that can't be blamed on the centre. The jelly fish were a little sparce but plenty of fish and sharks
