    New Projector Project

    Today I decided to change up my 3 24" monitors/th2go for 2 EX5200 Epson Projectors/dh2go. These were the first test flights. Tomorrow will be for cable management and then I will work on the cockpit build.

    Cost
    $399 for each projector
    $40 lumber

    Time
    1 day

    Re: New Projector Project

    Hi!

    Its a huge update for your cockpit!

    ¿Why these projectors? I think you can cover the whole screen size with just one short throw widescreen.

    ¿Have you plan to use nthusim, warpalizer, immersive display lite, etc. to blend your inner edges?

    I think you can do a little curved screen to avoid your hard sidewall angles, and you gain very immersive sensation!

    I have downloaded nthusim and will experiment with the wrap around when I have more time...I can wrap the screen a fair bit around the corners so it would be good to be able to use that area without distorting.

    Re: New Projector Project

    I am considering to make a curved screen and using Nthusim...will this be a big improvement? (dual projectors with a matrox dualhead2go, gtx 280)

    Anybody able to send me a link of a dual projector setup with nthusim?

    Re: New Projector Project

    Well Sunday was project day. After the TIR test I decided to use the opportunity to streamline my cockpit...I like to keep it minimal and multiple cockpit friendly as I regularly fly all kinds of GA.

    Currently as you can see I am using a monitor for the instruments..which I think works great...and allows me to switch between planes easily, however, if I do choose to go with a panel option I would appreciate some advice on the following:

    1. I suppose I could create a cover over the monitor to give the impression of gauges...but I would prefer a set up to allow me to fly a variety of GA.

    2. I could buy (6) saitek panels shown here: http://www.fspilotshop.com/product_i...oducts_id=2106

    3. Next would be the VR Inight panels: http://www.flightsimstore.com/produc...roducts_id=897
    http://www.fspilotshop.com/product_i...oducts_id=2561

    4. Also are there are Simkits usb instruments: http://www.simkits.com/products.php?groupid=54

    5. I recently became aware of http://scflightpanels.com.au/ but I cannot find a video anywhere of them in use...but at that price it definitely looks good.

    Does anybody have any experience with any of these and/or any advice?

    Here are the latest sets of photos and videos. Sorry for some of the video...I was tilting the camera sideways but forget it does not auto rotate.
