    lol, With the 1.1 update I took a little late and I am in the adjustments. :D
    Please wait, it will come soon :p


    (Avec la mise à jour 1.1 j'ai pris un peu de retard et je suis dans les ajustements. Patience, elle arrivera très bientôt)

    Thank you @HoiHman and @zigzag49 :cheers

    You will see @zigzag49, SimTools is very easy to use. Personally I followed a tutorial @Wanegain because I do not understand much English but in any case it is much easier than X-sim ;)

    (Tu verras @zigzag49, SimTools est très facile à utiliser. Personnellement j'ai suivi un tutoriel de @Wanegain car je ne comprend pas bien l'anglais mais en tout cas ça reste beaucoup plus facile que X-sim)

    Thank you noorbeast :cheers
    Yes, it's very simple to manufacture and it is cheap because it is of structural assembly parts.
    I then connected on a button G27 (many tutorial on the web for this :thumbs)
