    Re: new cockpit

    Well, just a few thoughts that might help you.

    Regarding projectors: The choice between 1, 2 or 3 projectors might also be influenced by your budget. From a technical perspective there is not much of a difference; what I mean here is that there are many builders just using 1 projector and they are happy with it.
    Have not seen many builders using 2 projectors but it can sure be done.
    The ultimate view however will be achieved with 3 (or even 5 projectors).
    This number will give you a pretty wide FOV (Field of View) and will allow
    you to wrap the view around you cockpit which is basically impossible with just 1 projector.
    If your budget allows you I would strongly suggest to go for 3 projectors.

    Curved or no curved screen: The ultimate is indeed the curved screen. However, keep in mind you will need an add'l piece of software called SOL7
    to correct the graphic distortion. SOL7 can be licensed from Immersaview (http://immersaview.com/sol7.html) at a pretty good discount for members of this forum. Just search this forum for sol7 and you will find a number of posts of people that have it in use.

    Just start with 1 projector and experiment (a lot) to see how it will fit in your sim room and how to get a decent picture quality. If you are satisfied buy more projectors. From the experience you gain doing this step by step you will find that some things that might look very difficult at first are not in reality (how do you eat an elephant? One steak at the time.....)

    And in doubt, don't worry; someone here on this forum will always be there to help you.

    Cheers,

    Re: new cockpit

    Hola Aitor,

    That looks like a very serious projector but at a price as well.
    Keep in mind that this is not a short throw projector so you will need some
    space to get a decent size picture on your screenmaterial.

    Also, running at 1980 x 1080 resolution will put an extra burden on your
    graphics card. Most of us are running at 1024 x 768 and get more fps out
    of the PC (to have a smooth flight you will need approx. a minimum of 20 - 25 fps). Just do some experiments so you will see what it does to your hardware in terms of performance versus picture quality. Based on the results you can then determine if you need a new PC and if so, what specs it needs.

    Cheers,

    Martin
