    new Member looking for "simple" cockpit

    Hello everybody

    I am an active flight sim pilot who feels that it is time to upgrade to something a bit more realistic. I don't want to go the whole hog and turn my back room into a cockpit so I would appreciate any info, links etc to a design for a simple set-up, perhaps with an autopilot panel,radio panel etc.

    Looking forward to any suggestions.

    Hello Mate....

    Welcome to mycockpit, are you into flying GA aircraft or the big jets? Props maybe....or UFO's on x-plane? lol

    Its all going on in here.....

    You can pretty much build a generic cockpit for either 1 or 2 pilots, its pretty cheap to go down the LCD route, or you can network some PCs etc to display gauges and visuals etc.

    You looking at building anything such as your MIP (main inst. panel) or radios etc?....

    Tell us more......

    Kind Regards

    Hi Alex

    Thanks for the reply. I am into jet airliners (Fokker 100, Boeing 737 etc).
    The initial thing that puzzles me, is that on pictures I have seen of sim set-ups,I can't figure out how to channel the signals to an autopilot panel or radio panel, so that what you see on your monitor(s) is just the view outside, and not repeating the view ot the instrument panels that you get in cockpit view in FS2004. If I had the answer to that then maybe I could move forward.

    Cheers

    Ed Green
