    Thanks all for the positive feedback! Indeed we engineered and made everything mechanical ourselves including screen mounts. Big thumbs up to @Thanos and @pmvcda for their electronics and amazing software, and of course all of you for your enthusiasm, knowledge and inspiration! Couldn't have done it without! Indeed we can make more from now on, although I'd hate to be banned here for unauthorized promotion so I'll contact the moderators first.

    Shakedown done, actually not really any issues. Some details like cable routing which can be a pita for any project but its not bad I think: not too cluttered and accessible. It also functions properly, however regarding settings we are not there yet. We are now working on a baseline and will posts video later for you all to bash on :)

    Nice build :thumbs. FI, If you do have ideas of commercializing, you could have your thread moved to the https://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/commercial-simulators-and-peripherie.52/ area on the site.
