530 for x-Plane on Linux

This an excellent addition to my sim that is accelerating my learning of the classic 530. Customer service was responsive, and the shipping was reasonably quick. One bonus, this was considerably less costly than major competition which stopped linux support. This product however was plug and play.

Above expectations

Easy install, plug and play (zero configuration), easy to use, adds a lot to the sim experience, good build quality, fast shipping. I honestly don't find anything negative to say.

Very pleased! Works great.

Works great, very pleased! Used with the mounting bracket attached to my flight yoke chassis. I found it very versatile for use with other screens in the simulator (for example PFD/MFD in jets) and am able to program its buttons (via to a variety of functions in the sim.

Very realistic

I only got to try it for about 2 hours because I am rebuilding my simulator but I couldn't be happier with it. Look great and perform beautifully a must have if you are doing simulation.

Experienced GNS530 Pilot and Twitch Streamer Gives it Full Marks!

I loved the G1000 hardware from FlightSimBuilder so much that I ordered this GNS530 for my cockpit for when I fly planes with it. I am not disappointed. These plug and play modules just work. Everything that MSFS does with the 530 works exactly the same, except we can twist those dials and push those buttons for instant frequency changes or flight plan data entry. Everyone knows that using an on-screen mouse to twist dials while the plane is moving is almost impossible and it takes forever when you should have your eyes out the window. Now data entry is a few seconds and you can keep your eye on flying... like in real life. My flying experience just got a whole lot closer to real. Now that it is setup and works great, I will be mounting it in a FlightVelocity blank panel. Absolutely loving this thing. -ForderLearnToFly

Value and Quality!

I have a RealSimGear G1000, and bought the FlightSimBuilder GNS530 to add to my setup. Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality and value of the FSB GNS530. Most important, compared to RSG is that the FSB doesn’t need any special plug-in. It just shows up as a joystick/button box in X-Plane, which makes it easy to configure. The .joy that is referred to didn’t work at all for me, so I wound up creating a LUA script that will set up all the buttons for me if I need to. The manual refers to a monitor menu that should show up with the .C button long press, but that didn’t work for me. It also refers to LEDs that don’t apparently exist at the current hardware. The base is a bit too lightweight to not move on the desk when pressing the lowest buttons. Maybe either more weight or a rubberized base would help? Shipped really quickly and securely. I was glad to see that all the needed cables were included. It really makes a difference to be able to actually have buttons and knobs in the sim. Highly recommended.
