Love the setup... have any pics of it w/ the lights on? And it seems pretty smooth..was that fsx? and what kind of specs do you have on your machine, as it seems so fluid.

Thanks Wittpilot here are a couple of pic's with the light on.

This first picture is pretty old, I was still working on placing the guages properly...

I'm running a Core2Quad Q9450 @ 2.66 GHz with 4 gigs of DDR3 Ram, 2 Nvidia 9800 GTX + and 32bit Vista, I haven't even loaded FSX yet, I really need to give her a try. :redf:

What kind of projector are you using Slund? That's super!

How did you get the gauges to display on the panel? Are those LCD monitors mounted there with the gauges displayed on them? Very interesting set up and one I wish my wife would buy me for my birthday.

The projector is a Sony, I don't remember the actual name of the projector :icon_lol: it's a few years old with a default resolution of 1024X768, I'm waiting to get one with a 1280X1024 native resolution. :jump:

The gauges are displayed on two 19" Lcd monitors, they are just 2D panels that I put together with FS Panel Studio. I've actually got 4 aircraft setup to fly in the pit each with their own individual panel setups.

This is the Carenado Mooney

and this is Lionhearts Epic LT, it wasn't finished when I took this picture and looks much better with the standby instruments and autopilot...etc installed.

Hey Brian, anytime your in Central British Columbia just drop by with a six pack of beer and you can fly her all you like. :ernae:

HMMMM.. I think it's time for an old (and OLD) Selkirk student to revisit the Kootenays. I assume the 6-pack is for AFTER the flying :ernae:
BTW, have you (or anyone else) investigated the possibilities of a dual-control set-up ( or is the right seat just for the Stewardess Mimi?)

This reminds of something...
During the last FSweekend in Lelystad, by far the coolest exhibit according to Huub and myself was this:

Now all we need is a big lottery win...and a Mustang (JK)/Me109 (Huub) enclosure..

Yep, I was looking for pricing, but I guess that's still in the works. Very cool concept though, relatively compact although for apartment dwellers like myself, you'd need to upgrade to a 2bdrm (one for the sim, lol).:costumes:
