    FMC and Touchscreen AND WideFS

    Hi all

    Not too long ago i bought a PSOne screen for my FMC. However, I am WAY too busy, at least till the 13th July with World Cup, to do any sort of building on my pit. However, i looked at buying the FMC kit from open cockpits or somewhere but, be that as it may, i also need a screen for lower EICAS. SO i was thinking of killing 2 birds with one stone, thought it wont look as realistic, i thought of using a 15 or 17" touch screen which will let me use a soft FMC and also give me my EICAS

    I have VasFMC and I am willing to buy another package if necessary (NOT PMsystems - WAY too expensive) but I would like an FMC that would have a good clean look when re-sized to the area for ease of use and aesthetics.

    Will VasFMC be ok for this? (haven't used it yet) Will it work with WideFS? Are there other FMC packages which could use WideFS (fully licensed).

    Thanks in advance.

    Would be interested in hearing about your experience with touch screens. Have been looking at SimTouch but hear it maybe hard on framerates.

    I am planning on getting one but there is just SO much i need to do first i.e. deposits for new schooll my daughter will attend and doing more on my build before i get a touchscreen. Hopefuly it will be cheaper then LOL. I see a great low cost solution at www.chinavasion.com. They have a number of possibilities.
