    Nice to see it all working :thumbs. Having to build six of everything can be quite a challenge.

    Hello, Not bad at all !
    I'm also going on a 6DOF for DCS, so what do you use to get the live data from DCS that we see on your video? Thanks

    For the moment I am in the test phase while still waiting for material. FlyPtMover works and I manage to control my engines! Great job

    @dureiken Can you maybe share what you already have so that others can tweak it in collaboration? It would also be a nice starting point to start with, at least for me ;-) Again, are you willing to share what you already have?

    Thank you for sharing. I will definitely work on it and if I have improvements I will let you know. However I'm afraid I'm less advanced than you. I now also have the same problem that you foresaw, the space for the pedals ;-)

    Phew, there are so many aspects that still require attention, but as long as there is progress it remains fun, thanks to contributions like yours now . Thanks again.
