Hi, Guys!
« on: February 15, 2022, 02:02:37 PM »
I'm completely brand new to flight sims, and I know almost nothing about building a pit.  But, I've been completely fascinated by what I've seen and have decided to go all-in on building my first pit.  I started a few days ago and have been printing parts at a pretty good clip.  But wiring it all up and making it work is going to be a huge learning curve.  Someone recommended this community, and I'm so happy to be here.  I'll be leaning on you folks a lot.  Thank you all for having me.

Welcome.TR

For the pit wiring, Martin (Pegasus) has an excellent solution in his LAN boards. These will handle all electronics snd interfacing in your pit. You should check them out. He also has a whole catalog of amazing F16 replica parts.

He has my hghest recommendation for his product line.

Hi mate!

From now on it's only joy and expenses  :D
I'm happy to see another soul sold to this hobby :)

Good luck and keep us updated!
Sometime, when I have a bad day at work, I'd close all the windows on my PC and gaze on the wallpaper with the Viper going on full AB thru the sky.

Welcome aboard - sure could have used you here a year or two earlier, as I was contemplating buying a house in Queen Creek, passed on it, and now totally regret that decision... :brickwall: !

You're in the right place... :thumbsup: !
