Re: Post Your Cockpit

Here's mine, the "Basement Sim." I started building it a couple of months ago, and it's led me all the way to PE. Worth every step. And I've learned more about the amperage loadings of USB hubs than I ever cared to learn. There's a video here, too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVbfLecLV...

I'm really looking forward to learning how it all really works (and given that I'm thinking seriously about getting my PPL, I know it will be a great primer). Glad you like the blog and sim, too.

So this was my first time dealing with anything this ... real. And I loved it. It's funny: while I had watched the...
