    The K.I.S.S. Pilatus/Generic GA Sim

    Well, after much research I have decided to bring the old slogan "Keep It Simple Stupid" into consideration. My first REAL enclosed simulator will be a generic single engine. I would like to replicate the Pilatus PC-12 as much as possible though not being necessary.

    I have definitely decided to NOT use the 52 inch projection TV as it is connected via S-Video and we all know the resolution for that is too small, making the image blurry.

    This idea still stands:


    I plan on building a dash under the 17 inch displays to house the gauges. The monitor I have now is really small, I won't have room for engine instruments. When I get money I plan on using 2 SLI video cards allowing the use of 4 displays. Then I will have 2 monitors cut into the dash, instead of one.

    If anyone has any input for me, I would appreciate it very much. Money is something I do not have, I was injured in a car wreck a year ago and am now unable to work. But with what I have, I think I can build something decent.

    Thanks for looking!

    - Matt

    Hey Alex, thanks for the reply. I've been zooming in and out of these pictures for a couple of weeks. I can't create something as good as that, but I can still learn a lot from his build. Im going to get working on it and post some pictures, so when I get stuck, you guys can help me.

    Let's build this Simulator together MyCockpit community!
