Standby Indicated AirSpeed (IAS) Analog Gauge

The IAS gauge is now functional in the sim with the assistance of Mick Cliffe (hardware integration) and FSUIPCtoPOLOLU by TNT-Systems.

The internal airspeed mechanism (diaphragm) has been removed and replaced by a servo.

A Pololu Maestro 6-channel USB servo control board has been interfaced with FSUIPCtoPOLOLU software.

Results from previous attempts to interface the gauge with an Arduino was not desirable because of the jitteriness of the IAS hand.
