Building an Airbus Cockpit

How to connect things to a BU0836X card

Since I had a few requests on my other videos, this one explains how to connect switches to a BU0836X card from Leo Bodnar. Hope you find it useful. If you have questions, post a question in my forum!

Great video , I have few questions about that card
1.can I use 3 cards in one PC or it will conflict like it did with your joystick ?
2.I saw the website selling that card and it says ( 32 buttons / 16 rotary encoders ) does that mean I can use 32 buttons plus 16 rotary's in one card ?

Thanks for your comment. and your instructions. POST your questions in the forum please. What, beyond the video, do you need to know? I think the video explains it pretty well. What did you not understand - I'm happy to answer a specific question but not to explain it all again, in any language.

We are building an airbus 320 large scale and would like to know how to use leo bodnars card thing for this project. if you would put it in a language we would understand as this is our first time we would be grateful. the instruction set used for this card is also complicated so we would like to know if you would help us to use this card effectively. post your reply here.

1) Can you build military aircraft cockpits?
2) Can you build to another configuration, not standard racing car type cockpit. I mean a small desktop cockpit.
3) Can you do other things such as make a real Horizon Indicator (ADI) work with a computer simulation software (such as opening it up and putting in stepper motors to move the indicator in line with FSX).

I just came across your instructional video for leo bodnars card which I have just bought and being utterly electronically illiterate found your video very useful and in a language that even I understand.......thanks for the video and for keeping it 'simple',I am sure there are many other dummies like me around who are trying to get to grips with panel building and who would benefit from this basic level of instruction.
