    Hey Slowhand,
    Welcome to the insanity we call cockpitbuilding This hobby eats cash faster than my ex wife. My recommendation to you is to purchase a triplehead2go box to give you full surround view.

    Slowhand, welcome aboard. Nice to see a fellow Floridian join or madness.

    Craig is where I got my Private, Commercial, IFR and Multi. JAX was my home for many years.

    hey guys, thx for the welcome,Matt no kidding what a small world getting even smaller..lol..jax has changed so much in the last few yrs..i'm about 15 mins from Craig..i used to take my kids up there to watch both the Army NG and the civi air traffic..do there thing...i think thats why i like jax so much there is alot of air traffic in this town..p-3's and s-3's from NAS jax, the Sea knights(choppers) from NAS Mayport...and the biggest mistake was closing NAS Cecil Field(F-18's) and my fav..the whitehouse strip where we would watch the F18's and the S-3's do touch and go's....Warvet, you say i should look in to the triplehead2go for muiti monitors..rt now i have 2 monitors on 2 video cards..one is my hud and pit view the other i use for my abris/and shkval view which is a touch screen(the abris/shkval is part of the KA50 black shark)Attack chopper...there are some great videos of the sim on youtube..again guys thanks...I look forward to your insight in to the cockpit building world.i'll post some pic's as i go...much thanks..Slow
