    Prototype Aircraft Stimulator

    Hi guys I will be making a prototype aircraft simulator, which means making an aircraft model, perhaps 10 feet long with a seat and flight controls like a joystick and a pedal to control the ailerons, elevator, rudder, wings. and if possible add a hydraulic pump to the seat and sound system too so that the seat will move as in a actual flight. The idea is to give the users a sense of feeling of what is it like when you bank the plane to the right and so on.

    I guess there will be two steps in doing this: first making the model out and secondly connect the joystick and stuff mechanical and electrically so as to create the stimulation.

    Anyone here got any idea where to get the infomation from or any of you have done this before and would like to share the experience with me and teach me step by step on this??

    Thanks alot..

    tan pao wei,

    Hi. Been building a simpit (simulated cockpit) for about 3 years now... it's a long process. It is possible that some of what I have done will be useful.... although it is not exactly what you are attempting.

    Check out the link below for documention of my project:

    Also ckeck around in the entire SimV "Homebuild Cockpits" forum for others work and ideas.

    Good luck.

    best,

    ..........................john

    Nope.

    Mike's Flight Deck is about the best I've seen.
