New Sim Cockpit (almost) completed

New Sim Cockpit (almost) completed

Postby webstalle » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:15 am

I was off since mid of October until this week when I conducted a couple of flights to continue with my WUS challenge.
The reason I was off was the reconstruction of my Home Cockpit. Inspired by what OnTheGlideSlope assembled, I decided to rebuild my own cockpit. The old one used three 32'' monitors joined together at an 45° angle and a pre-assembled Cockpit panel made by XTOP (no longer in production I think).
I decided to use wider monitors and went for the 43'' ACERs, setup at an angle of 90°, so they shape a U with me sitting in between. Each one is driven by a dedicated PC with 1080Ti and i7-6700k, watercooled. The PCs are at the top of the Cockpit.
Since I'm not a carpenter or any other kind of a craftsmen, it took me quite a time to assemble the wooden frame. Both yoke and rudder are from the Brunner, a swiss company. Those devices are capable of force loading, so I can feel the forces of the airstream affecting the elevator, aileron and rudder at the controls.

Attached are some pictures taken with my mobile phone:

All you need is a more comfortable chair. :)
