nice design!
Did you use an Arduino for controlling the stepper? If yes, can you share your code with us?
Thanks :)

Hi, i use the mobiflight Software based on Arduino Platform. This is great free Software to control all kinds of fsx hardware gauges, indicators, warning lamps.... Google for mobiflight!

Thanks for your reply. I will have a look at it.
Happy landing!

Great Job on the wet compass.
I was able to use it in my 737NG cockpit with an existing stepper motor from another project.
I did create a simple bracket for mounting but thanks for sharing your design.

Everything works perfect but compass turns in the opposite direction using Mobiflight. I'll work on that later. lol

Wet Compass based on hein4bloed's design

in mobiflight use the "Transform" option and insert: $*(-1)
