I have a question for those of you who own a QS Masterpilot. I'm thinking about buying one, despite the programming problems people have reported having with faster machines (I still have my old P233 sitting around). Is it possible to have the Masterpilot and your keyboard connected at the same time? Do you have to disconnect your keyboard to use the Masterpilot, or can you connect your keyboard in series to the Masterpilot? Alternatively, if you have a USB compatible keyboard, can you connect the keyboard to the USB port and at the same time connect the Masterpilot to the keyboard PS/2 connector?

Thanks to anyone who can answer my questions.

The Masterpilot is daisy-chained with the keyboard. You can use either device any time you like. Also, if your CPU runs on 66MHz bus, you will not face any programming difficulties.
If you WILL buy it - get the Programmer too.
I have the whole thing connected to a Suncom HOTAS, and it works very well.
Sorry, but no experience with the USB...

Negative on the USB Keyboard chain...the chain must be terminated with your keyboard, and the MP is a PS2 and/or DIN connector. You can hook the MP up using a Y-Mouse USB to PS2 adapter, as long as the MP chain is terminated by a keyboard emulator of some kind.
This setup was gone over ad nauseum in a similar thread in this section of the forum. Check it out
