Yep. Just make sure you line them up exactly or your gauges will be wobbly.

Tragedy has befallen my cockpit. (Maybe a bit dramatic) my main touchscreen couldn't calibrate very well with windows so the manufacturer sent me a great program that calibrated it amazingly. But it kept defaulting to the wrong model. So I sent the flash command to it hoping it wouldn't drop the calibration. Wrong. It killed the firmware and made my touchscreen a glass paperweight. The manufacturer doesn't make that model anymore but can fix the PCBs with a new chip. If I send it to them. In china. So I have to see how much that costs. It's the most vital part of the sim. But might cost more than it was new just to send to them. Argh. It was working so beautifully too.
I reached a milestone though before it happened. An actual cold start to trip around the pattern to shutdown. It was a thing of beauty. Over two years I the making. Looks like some overtime might be in order at work to afford it 

About the only thing left operationally is rudder pedals and an ejection handle. I made a video of the whole start up procedure from dark but I ant get it to upload anywhere. Oh well.

Started work on rudder pedals/wheel brakes.
Obviously finish work is not my favorite thing to do. But they'll work.

It's crude, but hey,  if it works - it works  :harhar:
You put your feet on them anyway  :whistle:

Don't mind the state. You are a guy just like many electronic kit builders.
They solder the PCB, connect the switches/pots and power supply and it works.
... ... A decent housing is always the last item on the "to do" list, and more than often it will never happen  :whistle:

Still, with a little file work and some sprayed grey paint they will look cool  8)

Can't you retrofit it with another touch screen frame?

The company is actually sending me their newest model. I just had to cover shipping.

Henkie. I agree. If I can file the nubs down it should look ok after a couple coats of my primer grey. Plus my feet cover it anyway. As usual I only get about 45 mins at a time to work on the pit so attention to detail usually comes second.
Blue death- obviously I was a bit dramatic with the post. The main screen is a 20" lcd with a touchschreen overlay. That's what failed was the overlay. So main screen still works just no touch. My biggest thing I'm proud f with this pit is how cheap I've been able to do it. So each time I have to "bite the bullet" and buy an extra something or splurge for something it stings pretty bad.

As a rov-pilot the housing is pretty high on the list when repairing the little sub :biggrin:

I just did some hardcore nerding out watching my rudder and wheel brake axis move with the pedals and brakes. This pokeys55 is just one amazing little piece of hardware. Can't believe more people haven't used it for their pits.

New touchscreen overlay came finally. Works amazingly right out of the box and there isn't any delay between touches like the last one. Mounted my rudder pedals and ergonomicay they're awful. Way too close to me so it hurts just to lift my feet up enough to try the brakes. It's pretty wobbly too so a slight redesign is in order.
