So correct me if I'm wrong, but my take, having been through a lot of the forums and addons; if I wanted to use Orbiter with a high-fidelity motion flight simulator. all the parts are there, or am I missing something?

1, The need to project the main screen 180 degrees - Orbiter Master / Slave PC addon
2, MFD displays - VNCMFD addon
3, Fashion an FCU - OrbConnect addon
4, Control devices - Fly-By-Wire or/and Joytokey addons/software
5, Touch screen switch panels - OrbConnect addon

right?

AFAIK and IIRC, only switch "setters" for XR vessels (XR-1,2,5...). But there was a "click" function in Orb:Connect, again, IIRC.

I believe that if using Orbiter Master/Slave you have the limitation that switches on cabins will not be reproduced between sims. For this I would recommend connecting to the Orbiter that would be running using VNC/Radmin or something similar (even Anydesk but that one is too overkill for a LAN environment), to display the image/audio on another computer. You could also try an UDP video stream with OBS.

Best regards,
