    EX-B737 builder comes back and wants to build a A320 home cockpit!

    EX-B737 builder comes back and wants to build a A320 home cockpit!

    Hello to all !

    My name is Nick from Athens, ex B737 full home cockpit...

    Started back in 2008, with FSX, multiple screens and a joystick and ended up in 2010 to do the jump..... here is my thread.... http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php?t=20424 here is a video from the old times https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdMNCDrvFfY


    At some time in 2014, due to busy business schedule, I realized that my time was limited, so I sold the sim...

    I always wanted to come back, SINCE THE FIRST DAY I SOLD IT, but the decision was postponed....

    Now I have decided to start building again, this time for a A320 build...

    After 4 years away from this hobby, I started reading, and realized that many have changed, so I would like your thoughts about the following...

    1) I would like a single seat trainer (having a dual seat trainer in the past, from experience I can tell you that it was maybe only 5% when a second person was with me in the cockpit)
    2) I do not want an enclosed shell (Shell is great, but given that the room that I will build the sim can be extremely dark, it is ok)
    3) External will be 3 x 50" TVs (I've done the projector thing, it's great, but too much fuzz IMHO)
    4) Even though the sim will be SST, I would like the full feeling, forward and aft overhead, motorized throttle, etc....
    5) All parts will be Plug n Play (From experience PnP parts will give you back your money if sold, DIY modules are still somewhere in my place)
    6) From all parts that I need, all I have already is a very powerful SSD PC, and a Th2Go
    7) I would prefer European suppliers due to Customs duties...
    8 ) I am totally unaware about the new software trends, so I was hoping you can guide me through the correct channels...

    With that said, I am open to all thoughts and discussions...

    Thank you in advance,

    Hey Nick, welcome. Seems like there are at least two-three more Greeks in this forum building with jeehell.
