    EC Tiger plans

    Hey guys!


    I'm currently planning to build my first own sim cockpit, a replica of the Eurocopter Tiger.
    My plans are the following: reuse my 3d model of the cockpit as blueprint; build a full replica, based on a 0,85cm wide baseplate, so you can roll it through standard-doors.
    I plan to use four monitors for displaying the exterior:
    one 40 inch monitor for the front window
    two 55 inch monitors for the side windows
    one 28 inch monitor for the upper window
    (possibly one 22 inch monitor for the analog instruments + MFD)
    What is your opinion for that setting? Is it possible at all to use 55 inch TVs for side windows, regarding viewing angle dependency? When using Microsoft FSX, is it better to use one PC with four monitors, or four PCs (one PC for each monitor)?


    It would look like this (black = monitors; red = not covered by monitors):

    I would use monitors that were the same size, you won't be able to match them up correctly if you try and use significantly different zoom factors. 4 PCs capable of running FSX maxed out would be your best option but also the most expensive.

    Thanks for your advice!
    I'll use only 55 inch monitors instead of using different sized ones.
    Is it okay to use TV monitors? Do you think there will be problems using the two side monitors at an 90 angle?
