How do I turn a keyboard into switches for a computer based flight simulator? Answered

Yeah, like, I want to take a keyboard, and turn the buttons into switches, oh yeah and I want it to be out of the keyboard, like in a box or something, but more like an aircraft than just a keyboard, you know what I'm saying? like a cockpit, but from a keyboard yeah you know what I mean

Google Cockpit builder there are lots of places with the information you seek.

you might have a problem with this because the plastic boards that the switches are on may melt from the heat of the soldering iron, it is possible because the metal contacts on the boards wont melt enough to stop working. you might want to try re mapping the circuit onto a bread board and then trying to do this project.
