    Thanks Stinger. Prevailing circumstances at the time didn't allow me to do that, but I have since done so and all worked fine.
    Meanwhile I had contacted Bodner Tech Support to see what they had...

    Bodner button and switch interface

    I have a couple of Leo Bodner's button boards. I enlarged the mounting holes before I read the advisory/warning not to do so. The re-drill went fine, the corner didn't split out, no apparent damage...

    Not sure about the Nano but I would think they would work. There are several Arduino-based projects for FSX on Youtube that will give you the basics. Arduino controllers can drive stepper motors or...

    U-Fly-It

    Can't really determine a suitable category for this - it's not really a 'sim' in the traditional sense, but - sorta.

    There was a toy cockpit panel that came out in 1948 called U-Fly-It. It was...

    Switches might be easier for me, but I could go either way. I wasn't aware that FSX would allow going directly to a specific flap setting. I'll check that out. All I saw was the F5-F8 buttons which...

    Absolutely. Lot of help. Thanks.
    I don't yet have the paid version of FSUIPC but I figured it would have provisions to do this.

    Oh - so you're using ranging on the pots rather than individual position switches. Neat idea. Hadn't thought of that.

    Flap and gear levers

    Default FSX features provide only for bumping the flaps or gear one step at a time. The gear switch toggles up/down (G) and the flaps step up or down with F2, F3. I'm building a 'real' lever system...
