Buggers dont stock the preassambled version anymore.. so gotta solder the thing together.... should be interesting as have never done anything like this before and its rated as 4 on a 1 to 5 difficulty scale ( 5 = advanced)

First step towards building a cockpit ;) :P

expect broken bits in the bin within a couple of weeks :)

have you soldered much before Hatster? If not let me advise you to buy:

A solder suction pump (for sucking solder out of joints that you want to change.

And a wet sponge.

nope.. not done anything like this before.. ever... starting totally from scratch.

My aim is simple to start off with... I want a little light to come on , on my desk, when I turn the cockpit lights on in game... and I want to be able to flick a switch on my desk.. and the cockpit lights come on in game :)

We'll get step 1 out of the way first.. then worry bout other stuff...

However.. to get to step 1.. gotta buy a thin pointy soldering iron and some solder :D
