    I second @Archie' support for a dedicated thread on 3D printing itself.

    We have odd bits collected about 3D printed parts here, but not a detailed thread on the black art of 3D printers and printing tips and tricks: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/3d-printing-no-printer-no-problem-use-the-hub.129/

    Here is a pic with the phone mounted. I need to get my hands on a android phone. I'm using iHud right now in iOS but android has in my opinion the best hud app around "DashMeterPro"

    No issues so far with bluetooth.

    Where did source the paddle shifters from?

    Is the adafruit module running off rechargeable batteries?

    Hello scalhoun, have you got any idea for the adapter to let the T500 F1 wheel to Q1R- OSW ?
    you just remind me that can use the 3D painter to make the Sheel for the wheel plate~~~~thanks~

    I didn't yet, but I think I'm going to gather those all up with a full parts list and post.

    Do you mind sharing those stl files for the shifters? They look great! And can you give us a link to the wheel? Looks like a great deal for just $35-40
