737NG update pics
Here are some latest photos of my 737NG sim.
- The landing gear lever arrived from FDS this week and I managed to get it up and running within minutes thanks to their Sys3 interface board. I'm loving the feel and look of using a "real" landing gear lever instead of my old Go-flight one!
- Have finished building the co-pilot panel and most of the side wall (except for wiring LEDs, switches etc) - I have another 17inch TFT monitor arriving soon from ebay to put behind the PFDs, this will just be a duplicate of the captains display (I've not got PM's co-pilot software).
Oh, and I built myself a seat out of some MDF and some sheets of foam!
I'm planning on maybe putting a monitor in both the side windows to give me a side view (I havent got enough space in my attic for side projection - those darn roof struts and beams are getting in the way, don't think I should mess with them!!). I'm guessing I should be able to do that with a triplehead2go?? Any ideas? - can I just undock the side FS/PMDG views and drag them where I want them?

I can't wait to get some panels in my sim. Looks great.

What's so neat about this project is that it shows (just like Mike's and others) that even with limited room, we can still usually MAKE a way to have a full size sim, even if it's just half the aircraft!
Way to go, it's looking really grand there!

Your doing a great job with building your sim Dan George. Looking forward to future updates.

Looking good Dan!
I did the same as you and have only "mirrored" the Captains PFD onto the F/O side with a Y vga lead - my view was that most of the time I will be on my own and if I have a guest then at least they will see something...

Like flying into even smaller airports?
Like flying an aircraft that is different?
Like how responsive and 'hot rod' like a business jet is compared to an airliner?
Like how you can park right at the front door of the FBO instead of at a gate?
Like the Falcon a ton!
