Using angular or linear sensors (analog or digital) for axes control and directly change data values. Resistive, optical, magnetic sensors. Calibration.
Use Direct or Extended digital output for LEDs or other On/Off type outputs for your cockpit (relays, actuators for flags, control signal for ICs, etc.)

Use 7-segment indicators with SimVimControl, connecting each 7-segment digit to its own shift register.
SimVimControl supports direct output to character LCD displays (16x2, 16x4, 40x2 etc.)connected to SimVim bus.
Servos are one of the options for creating needle gauges with SimVimControl.

Using moving-coil ammeters you can build most of the gauges with limited rotation angle. Also, you can control any other PWM devices
Stepper motors are a good option for creating quiet and fast needle gauges with either limited or full-circle rotaiton range.
