    Got a copy of the PMDG 737 and have put in some time sorting it out to the point were I have installed a Logitech Multi and Switch panel (well priced nowadays), which I have custom mapped with 'SPAD.neXt. Unexpectedly I have really enjoyed setting it all up using 'Simbrief' and flying the beast over numerous different routes. No two flights are the same, as the changing weather often seems to play havoc with the computers VNAV height path calculations (I would hope the real aircrafts computer manages a bit better), so you often need to step in to help it in the decent phase. Quite a learning curve, but am enjoying the journey , there is even sometimes failures, which you have to sort out.

    Hi @SeatTime , nice build you have there, it does give me ideas for mine !
    Just a question that I was unable to identify by the photos you posted. what's holding the system back and allowing movement for pitch and roll there?
    Some sort of universal joint / ball joint ?
    Thanks and keep it up !
