Thanks for the quick response and one additional question.
Will the software that the controls are to be operated with be usable with any of the Big Four Flightsims (DCS, IL2-Sturmovik, War Thunder, X-Plane 11) or will it be a one scenario
application for demonstration purposes only?

No problem. The hardware will handle any number of sims. There will be various ways in which these connections can be made. For instance, for DCS World we will provide the settings for DCS-BIOS in order to give full functionality. We will provide a particular solution to purchasers of a full and complete simulator. For plans builders, we will provide advice on possible options, there are many. But certainly the hardware can be interfaced with any sim that will allow the extensive functionality offered. (Or part thereof as in the case of IL2’s Spitfire MkIX which does not have a comprehensive set of controls).

Hi all my plan has developed to software and what is the best spitfire modle to use.
I wil be using P3D v5.3 and Fly Elise 4.4 pro for my build.
Any recomendations for a spitfire modle that is very acurate with all functions.

What you want for augmented virtuality is a virtual model that closely matches the physical model. As such the FlyingIron Spitfire MkIX is an exact match with HFS cockpit, seeing that it was a co-development. That is available in XPlane11 and MSFS2020. The DCS World Spitfire MkIX by Eagle Dynamics is also a good match. Beyond that you run the risk of your virtual world not fitting the real world cockpit, depending on how accurately the virtual model has been created. In P3d there is the A2A Simulations MkII which is said to be good as far as flight modelling is concerned. It’s a different Mark with a different layout and controls, so even with a good physical model it is not really suitable.
RealAir ceased trading in 2016 but did a Spitfire MkIX which is suitable for P3d. I dont know how accurately it was modelled but you may still be able to find a copy somewhere:
Hope that helps.

Hi thanks for the info I have no need for the visuals inside the cockpit as we will be using a projector wrap around screen as as long as the functions in A2A are available it might be a winner I will purchase a çopy and do some test

All good, welcome Kenneth.

Hi working on visuals on 3 projectors
I have a copy of xplane and the Flyingiron model.
As it is projectors I have no need for the cockpit but as it is a full cockpit I need the propellor and wings has anybody done this and if possible can you explained how to remove the visuals.

Hi Kenneth, I am sure that is not as simple or cost effective as rigging up a VR headset but it is possible. It’s been done by Boultbee with their sim, you can google them. They use a 1.5m fibreglass dome. The X-Plane forums also contain info. I seem to remember the X-Plane Professional version offers the functionality required for setting up multiple projectors.

From what I can see this is what you want here Kenneth:
