    That one has worked great for me. One USB cable to the rig feeds 3 JRKs, my wheel, my stick, pedals, wind, switch interface, and supplies USB fans on my JRKs and sub woofer amplifiers. I don’t know how much of the available bandwidth I’m using but everything seems to work ok.

    Bought it a while ago. May be better options now.

    Actually the cheap one's ive been using works just fine after i moved my setup to a 8020 rig. Before that i t was a host of issues and i figured out from another post that the ardunio's might be overloaded. Thing was though my Ardunios was genuine so it didnt really fit and i had tried everything and it wasnt close to any electricity . That said it worked on 115000 baud but after i moved it to a new spot and on a rig i didnt have any more issues.
