I’ve been playing around with DCS:World, and the ‘VSN’ mods, which allow you to fly a multitude of aircraft types leveraging off the FC3 F-15C and A-10A. This week I did some experimenting and training for air to air refueling. Using the VSN Super Hornet, and the default S-3 tanker was a hoot!
My last stop on my trip was Perth, where I had the pleasure of meeting Gwyn Perrett of Aerosim Solutions. Gwyn has built one of the best 737 home cockpits I have ever seen, and I had a great time flying, drinking beer and talking about sims and cockpit building.

I decided that I wanted a *cool* way to switch on an exterior light for the Mancave. I didn’t want a sensor light, and I wasn’t going to dig a trench for a cable from the house. I know there are all kinds of funky remote controlled lights, wifi enabled power controllers and many other home automation gadgets, but I wanted something a bit different, and most of all… cheap!
So, I bought a $12 remote car lock kit from Aliexpress and played around with it…. pretty cool, and lots of possibilities, starting with the light above the door, and who knows what else!
