Flight simulator instruments?

Hello all,
For many years, I have been obsessed with flight simulators however, I have only really been using rudimentary controls. I want a larger element of realism. Has anyone used their raspberry pi to create a control setup for a flight simulator with their rpi?

Pi Zero not working?

Hi there, I don't think my Pi zero is working. The power is on and working but, the monitor isn't. (The monitor is not broken) the green light isn't flashing and, I'm using the suggested charger. Any ideas?

Re: Raspberry Pi 2/3 relay system?

Are any of the relays available at microcenter compatible for raspberry pi? The one specifically geared for the raspberry pi is out of stock.

Re: Raspberry Pi 2/3 relay system?

Ok. Now I have the hardware taken care of, what about the software? Oh, that's easy. Look on-line and find just about any LED blinker sample code in Python, and just use that; but, rather than running the gpio pin out to an LED, run it out to a transistor which is driving the relay board. Instead o...

Re: Raspberry Pi 2/3 relay system?

Lets take a step back and look at this piece by piece. HARDWARE. You need a relay board with one relay for each channel of light control. If all the lights work together, that's just one channel. Make sure the relay board is specified to connect directly to the Pi's GPIO -- the control output is at...

Hello, ConradG13 here. I would like to build a project that uses a relay board and, has the ability to turn on and off lights at a timer. (ex. Light turns on at 7AM and, turns off at 11PM) All I need to do is a small display and not the whole house. Such as, controlling a light bulb. Because I don't...
