    Wallpaper searched for Glidersim

    For my Glider cockpit setup with 3 monitors outside view I'm looking for a wallpaper like this in "super widewiew" (3840x1024).



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Forward in the middle a real glider cockpit and the rest of beautiful scenery. Image search on the internet did not work out. Maybe even one of you has even a photo like this or similar on the hard disk. Please only real, not from the simulator. Thank you.

    Some Pictures of the Project:

    "Original" , DG 202 (FSX-Version)


    My version, build with OC-Servocard and some Servogauges:





    The body of the instrument panel is made from construction foam.



    This weekend I finish the instrument holder and the Servogauges.

    More Pictures next time...

    Thank You for the link.
    I already have a glider cockpit ,either with Condor as in the video and FSX for better scenery quality. The new I want to build with real instruments, as training for my "Main-Sim", the Grumman Goose. I will not take a beamer, but 3 monitors on Eyefinity. So everything is more compact. Right now I just fit the SIOC code, and experiment with a little motion platform for the Sim.

    Hi Skino.

    There is also a soaring simulator called silent wings, I think there is an available demo throught their website to have a go for yourself. I really do appreciate gliding and have great interest in the sport, so I will follow your progress. Have you got a fuselage?

    Thanks.

    Re: Wallpaper searched for Glidersim

    I have tested various simulators. Condor is the most realistic. And by the FreeCondorInstruments (freeware) multi-monitor capable. But X-Plane and FSX (with special add-ons) are quite suitable.
    Unfortunately I have no fuselage. All available to be destroyed or ugly, all the other far too expensive, especially the canopy.
    So I am also building the fuselage from scratch. I will post the progress from time to time

    Here is a picture of the first attempt, who has gone horribly wrong





    But you learn from his mistakes, the next attempt with glass fiber is better

    Re: Wallpaper searched for Glidersim

    Hi Skino, can I just ask 'what has gone horribly wrong', you seem to have a great concept. I know that here in the UK, gliding is very popular, and fuselages are just as rare because many snap them up quickly, because they are small, lightweight and easily converted to simulators.

    I know your frustration of not being able to create a rounded fuselage, unless you have some drawing of slices which you can baton together and infill with foam and sand.

    Personally, I think that your sim is not horribly wrong at all, I congratulate you on your efforts...

    To be honest a scrapped fuselage is perfect I know, but what you have done creates the immersion and reality, so well done.

    Re: Wallpaper searched for Glidersim

    Can I ask what the wallpaper will be used for? By the way the sim is looking great!

    Some Pictures of my first Instrument, the VSI







    The faceplate is printed on photo paper, the image is from the Flightsim-Gaugefolder. The needle is made from an old clock.

    See VSI in Action:



    @ Alex:
    Seeking such a wallpaper to display it on my 3 monitors. Looks better than other colors or motifs.
