    The big picture

    My first setup I used 3 beamers on 3 angled walls. Total width of the visual was 6 meters. I was really unhappy with the image quality. But maybe the worst with this scenario was that every tiny little move I made on my flightstick become very huge at the screen. Very hopeless to fly.


    Now on my temporary setup for flying when I am building the shell in another room. Here the visual is 3 meters wide (with 3 beamers). I moved the MIP closer to the wall. Much better picture quality and the feel of the flightstick vs movements on the screen become much better.


    (sorry for my bad pictures).

    My conclusion: Biggest possible image is not the way to go. Better keep the visual closer to the shell/cockpit and have the improved visual quality and feel of flying.

    This can turn into a constructive discussion on distances and sizes on the visual subject. Whats your experiences? Please keep it coming

    I am using the same type setup, and it is advisable to take the zoom out to 0.3 , this will help. The furher back from the screen the better as well.
