    The evolution of my simpit

    My goal is to build a realistic/ generic cockpit that I can use to fly most aircraft in Flight Sim. As of right now Iím still flying a desk but hopefully by the end of the year I will have a full enclosure and it will actually look and feel like a real aircraft. I primarily fly corporate jets so I guess Iím going to mostly model my simpit after the Citation X

    In the beginning I only had one CH yoke and thatís itÖthen I added the CH rudder peddles. Thatís when I decided to start building my simpit. Here is the first picture I took of my original setup.


    Then I added a second monitor and got the Airliner setup from GoFlight


    Next I added some Simkit instruments and the real 737 yoke by ACE


    A few more simkit instruments and 2 more GoFlight modules, Oh and Logitech backlight keyboard (a really nice addition)


    Same shot, a sort of night view to show the keyboard


    Most current picture with the TripleHead2Go.


    Same shot at Night...finally starting to feel the emersion.


    So far:
    3 ď22 monitors with the TripleHead2Go
    15 GoFlight modules
    9 Simkit instruments (more on the way)
    The real 737 yoke by ACE
    Saiteks rudder peddles

    Keep in mind this is just the beginning
    So much more to doÖ

    I will continue to post updates as I make more progress so stay tuned.
