A very nice announcement about the coming update...but no mention anymore of the earlier announced Homecockpit version.

Well I guess it is not "By the end of the year" yet.

Come on FSLabs, give us hardware users and Homecockpit builders something to interface the 320X to.

I know a lot of work has been happening there. Lefteris will provide more details soon.

Thank you Andrew, it has been a very long time since it was addressed by FSLabs, and I know I'm not the only one who has been waiting for it. Your message is very good to hear indeed.

The details would be greatly appreciated - thank you.

We are all patiently waiting :)

I'm just wondering...due to the DRM/malware issue...are we still expecting more info about a Homecockpit version "soon"?

For now I will stick with FSlabs...but it is my understanding that the recently released FF320 for XP11 already supports FULL control for Homecockpit usage...even without having to pay extra. ALL overhead pushbuttons and FCU displays etc included.

there's NO alternative to what the FSLabs A320 offers, not at all and not even close.

At least for me it's just waiting for Lefteris' infos.

Haha "not yet" anyway. But I've been waiting since Lefteris' announcement from May 2017 while more and more parts of my DIY Homecockpit are starting to collect dust because I can't interface them.

I understand your frustration, you`re certainly not the only one.

One of the hardware vendors mentioned a while ago, his sales literally dropped down to zero since months, because everyone seems to be waiting for FSLabs announcement. Well, at least for me that`s quite true.

However, going elsewhere is not an option for me.

No mentioned of FSL A320 cockpit edition in the roadmap, I guess they may have other priorities for now.

Michael - I wouldn't sweat it for now; there are alternatives like Jeehell FMGS (free) and Prosim A320?

Just got info, some hardware vendors like Skalarki and Vier-Im-Pott ( http://www.vier-im-pott.com ) will be at the Aero Friedrichshafen/Germany exhibition next month. There`s a special area dedicated just to flight simulation.

@Lefteris, will FSLabs be there as well ?

sorry have overseen this. No doubt these are nice products, but I won`t go elsewhere.

Don`t know how to explain. After almost 25 years flight simming I found my "home" with the FSL A320, have already bought an I7-8700/GTX1080Ti exclusively for it. 

So that`s the home part of homecockpit, the cockpit part apparently needs further waiting. I`d build a cockpit around the FSL, nothing else :)

Some parts already there :).

While we wait : Do you also have parts already ? Or just in the planning stage ? Which hardware vendors D

do you prefer ?

My Pacled64 (LED control card) works with SPAD.NEXT. Using SPAD.NEXT I control the LEDs based on the status of EFIS/FCU pushbutton lights of the virtual cockpit (FSLabs 320X). 

 

Thanks for the compliment

In May 2017 a "Homecockpit version" was announced. Now finally in February 2020 the Skalarki hardware driver kit is for sale...patience is a virtue...I continue waiting.

The FSlabs is still the beating heart of my Homecockpit project and thanks to the help of many clever "work arounds" posted by others, much of my project can be interfaced...but I hope someday it will be possible to:

1. Interface displays for FCU, EFIS and ELEC panel (SDK?)

2. undock ISIS, DCDU, DBI, clock and brake pressure gauge
