Being a small father-son team, we gladly provide information on this website to help home cockpit simulator builders since 2012. All Arduino libraries, plugins and online tools are non-commercial.

The main goal of this project is to popularize the exciting hobby of making home cockpits for flight simulation. Being professionals in fields of electronics and programing, we tried to make our own interface easy to start for newcomers and explain all aspects of the technologies for cockpit building on this website.

We are aiming to constantly update and improve our website and projects to provide you convenient software and information that can help you build your cockpit.


Both programming and computer graphics started out for me as a hobby when I was at school, and since then I've familiarized myself with a number of programming languages and various software.

I've always liked to immerse myself in science fiction, and at that time I was also interested in space simulators and some Sci-Fi modeling. I especially liked designing these models myself, usually drawing the paper patterns by hand.

I dabbled in electronics in the age of 13, made a control panel for a sci-fi space simulator out of parts of old keyboards:

At the university I've also studied CAD systems, in addition to other 3D software and programming.

My website:


Professional experience - electro-technician, electronics specialist, web developer ...
Knowledge/skills, interests - Electronics, programming, web-design, graphics, aviation/aerodynamics, etc.

Since my mid school time I have always had many interests to spend time creatively, making a lot of "do-it-yourself" things .

From lots of books and from my father I acquired my interest in technics and science. My experience in electronics started at the age of 14 with simple radios, amplifiers and other "analog" circuits. In the early '80s I started acquainted with a digital logic circuits that eventually has lead me to my own DIY computer (In the late 80th).

At the same time, I was very keen on aeromodelling and I have built a lot of C/L flying models, some static scale models, and developed my R/C system.

Educated: tech school, physics/mathematics in university, constant self-education...


Support our project

For us this project is a hobby that besides satisfaction brings some costs and takes a lot of time to continue our developments.

To help our project, you can become our supporter ("patron") on Patreon.


Patreon is a fundraising/donations website, it complements the usual donation options, but lets you support your favorite project on monthly basis, not just one-time.

Such subscription model is often considered to be the most convenient for both sides of the process: for the creators it is beneficial in the long term, and for the patrons - the ability to promote the creators by giving some "invisible pennies" in return for continued project support and development.

The sum that you specify can start with just $1 and will be withdrawn every month from your PayPal.

You can change the amount of your donations or cancel your subscription at any time.
