I am intending to replace the on-screen lighting, heat and fuel pump switches on my 172 WidevieW system with a real switch panel interfaced with the insides of a cheap USB keyboard. I am intending to use Luciano Napolitano's "Key2Mouse" utility to convert keypresses into mouse actions.
To make this work I need to source momentary contact toggle switches - an afternoon on the web and with my RS catalogue has drawn blanks so far - does anyone have any ideas where to obtain such devices (in the UK if possible, but anywhere would do)?
Also I would like to replace the starter with a 4-way key switch - anyone had any experience of this?
Here's a picture of my set up from a few weeks ago. I have since replaced the two side view 17" monitors with 19" screens, plus made some alterations to the wooden frame that holds the whole lot up. More details from http://www.shetland.flyer.co.uk/wideview/
All the best,
