Hi from Australia!
Gday guys! Thought I'd drop a line and say hello as I have just registered today. I am a fulltime commercial seaplane pilot (c208 amphib) and a flightsim enthusiast from way back.
My project: I am looking at building a Kingair 200/300 cockpit in the near future and im doing research for it at the moment. I'm looking at a basic enclosed cockpit setup to start with and will improve on it as time goes on. I would like to use standard fs2004 gauges initially but have 3 screens. I understand I can duplicate the main flight instruments on the f/o's monitor with a splitter etc but i'm not sure how to run the radio's and engine instruments on the middle screen. I think i might need a second computer to do so.
Any ideas on how to connect and run a second computer for the middle panel?
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Welcome to Mycockpit.org A King air is a great challenge, you should be able to use a Duel head video card to get your radios onto the middle monitor. You undock the radio stack and drag it onto the second monitor. You can use a Y cable to split the signal going to your captain panel for the FO.
There are some great pics of king air's in our gallery. Have a look around.
It's great to have you here.
