    Ive always enjoyed watching your project grow over the past few years. One thing that Ive always wondered about was the hot spot from the projector- is there a feasible way to get rid of this, and is it enhanced on the video more than in person?

    Also, how close is the screen to your windscreen? I ask that because it looks like it's close enough to make the rain drops appear to be close to your actual windscreen.

    Very nice project!

    thanks,

    Yup Joe I completely agree 100% with ivar. your project is what every builder hopes to reach with their individual project. The love and respect for the hobby and your dedication to the world of aviation is certainly worthy of the highest admiration and praise. many long hours and alot of $$ obviously went into this dream of yours and it does show. Keep up the fantastic work.

    Regards Tim

    Both he and Ivar have helped immensely with my 727.

    It wouldn't be what it is today without help from both of them.

    Glad I could help Michael. But it was not much. You did the work yourself

    I called my movie "the dream of flying" but the movies Joe share with us, would deserve that title much more. Love the Kai Tak approach

    To all Fellow Pilots
    Our crew is humbled by the wonderful comments you have all made and we feel very privileged to be able to share, learn and be part of this great worldwide community of flight sim pilots and cockpit builders at MYCOCKPIT.ORG.

    Eric, the hot spot is accentuated by the video. While flying there is so much eye candy around you that you forget its there. We will soon change our regular white queen size bed sheet screen (initially used as a template) for a real rear projection screen which will eliminate the hot spot. Our screen is 12 inches from the windshield (see attached photo), right at the point where the fiberglass radome starts.
    If your sitting in either pilot seat and look forward and downward, you will only be able to see up to these 12" of metal fuselage that are before the radome. Since the radome dips down you cannot see it from either pilots seat so it felt logical to put the screen there and to cut it so it would wrap around the sides of the fuselage to provide screen area for the entire forward view. The view is close but very realistic and helps me see thing better do to my poor eyesight, which BTW is the reason I was disqualified from the USAirforce Pilot Program. The projector is 11' from the screen and provides the large view you see in the videos.

    Mike, I downloaded your video on my laptop and next time I go flying I'm going to try the LOWI approach after studying your video and you my Friend are going to be my Instructor and Check Airman on the LOWI Approach!!!

    To Ivar and Tim And to all Fellow Pilots, the Passion we all share for flight can be summed up by the other 2 photos I have attached below. I consider them a reflection of my passion and I'm sure you too will also see a reflection of yourself.
