I don't use an FMC on aircraft which don't have one, it makes flights a real pain in the butt though.
My flightdeck is going to be sweet. When I start it it will be just the captains side and the throttles + overhead (an Airbus A32X - since I could use any A318/9/20/21/30 with it), then when I move out I'll add the first officers side, I'll buy a working FMS for the captains side but not one for the F/O as I can't see the need in it yet. Then I'll add a proper frame to make the flight deck complete with F/D door and library. Hopefully I'll be able to go ahead with my extra plans which I keep under wraps but it should be so damn cool and I could become an instructor too.
