    Hi!

    I'm a 45 year old(young?) Swede with an obsessive interest in in aviation.

    My cockpit project started around christmas 2004. I bought a two seat console from a company called SimSeatSystems and alot of other stuff like CpFlight MCP/Efis FDS cdu etc.

    In the summer of 2006 I moved to a new house where I suddenly got alot of space for the cockpit. I decided to build a new cockpit from scratch. My goal was to do it as close as possible to an NG.

    Since I'm heavily addicted to online flying I decided that the sim should be flyable as soon as possible and therefor I soon discovered that the detail level I was aiming for became unrealistic in terms of flyability. And I also discovered that my carpenter skills where abit overestimated to say the least.

    Well I have my rig up and flying. It has the feel of a 737 or at least a big airliner. But the great thing is that I'm able to fly online and I can increase the details as it suits.

    This seems to be a great place to hang.
    Regards Anders Eriksson

    Have you considered using two projectors?

    Hi!

    I haven't really had the time to consider anything about the visuals. But I'll be glad for any tip.

    I'm not sure what you have in mind when you say two projectors.

    Actually I have one projector laying in a corner at my work that I can borrow for experimenting.

    Most Video cards have outputs for two screens.
    If you presently project at 800x600 res (or 1024 x 768 ) you could double the width and go to 1600 x 600 (or 2048 x 768 )

    If you can't understand that, then you don't understand Norwegian. Sorry!

    Welcome to the forums! Glad to have you aboard.

    If we can lend a hand or an idea let us know.

    Most of these guys here are building glass cockpits, but I'm rather old-school and if you need any help with antique avionics or equipment lemme know and I'll do my best.
