    OmniAtlas FMGS Procedural Trainer

    Well, here is the start of my airbus build after testing FMGS for many weeks.

    Setup are the 2 Dell monitors I have purchased for a lowly price of 40 AUD each...they are fantastic because they can tilt, rotate, pan up and down.
    The aim is to setup a trainer that can also function as a computer desktop when not in use

    I have a flybycockpit sidestick and tiller on the way
    BenQ projector should be on order soon.

    I will most likely setup a complete middle section panels with skalarki gear, autobrake panel, and FCU. I will update as my build develops

    Thanks for sharing. What made you choose Skalarki as provider?

    Hi Stephen,

    I've only heard good things about Skalarki; their prices are also very reasonable compared to other vendors.
    Marcin also seems like quite a friendly person (unlike some other vendors which seem to be targeting the 'pro'-sumer line), and is responsive to e-mails.

    I have heard the build quality of his panels are also excellent. I do own any Skalarki products yet, so it has just been from word of mouth.

    Hi Omniatlas
    Thanks for sharing your projekt. I am building a cockpit since two years already and just ordered parts from Marcin, wich will arrive in about two weeks. I am using already his I/O cards for my overhead Panel which is build by FDS. That works fine and Marcin helps in any case and he always answers when you have some trouble.
    What kind of Dell monitors you are using?


    Best regards
    Stefan

    Ive had some great email exchanges with Marcin. He is going to set up a build so people can come and visit. Other "pro-sumer" vendors I have had very bad experiences with. They have no interest in the likes of us even though they say on their website "No requirement is too large or too small".

    Hi GodAtum, looks like we both have a similar experience from that vendor :-/

    I would also check out flybycockpits, Vitor has been very communicative by e-mail. I will be receiving photos of my order this week, so I'll post them up and let you all judge by the quality.

    Hi Stefan,

    I am using the Dell 1708FPT; they have a great functional support stand.

    Received my W1080ST projector today -- BEAUTIFUL. Over a 100" -- if you look at my measly 40" TV next to the projected image, its 4x the size!
