    Default Flight Simulation SIMPIT 2008 - 2014

    Good Day everyone, I am new to Pure overclock, I have been building my own pc for years now, and also have been a flightsim hobbyist. I have included the timeline pictures from my build from early 2007 2008 to today.
    real quick here is my system specs.

    Current setup
    AMD phenom II x 4 955t BE Overclocked 4.2ghz
    16gb gskillz OC ddr3 1600 ram
    xfx HD7870 ghz edition card
    2 acer 1920 x 1980 monitors 23"
    2 aoc 1920 1020 monitors 23"
    1x 20" dell monitor for split dvi for copilot gauges
    eyefinity setup. 3x1 + 1 5868x1080 + 1920x1080
    1 hdmi 1 dvi 2 x mini display port to dvi
    1 teclast a10 dual core 9.7 ips touch screen tablet for touchscreen FMC
    Sound blaster Audigy es platinum sound card.


    2 Saitek throttle quadrants with custom 757 handles.
    1 ch products yoke
    1 Saitek switch panel
    1 Saitek radio panel
    1 Oneshop pulse usb plug board for fuel cut off and parking brake switch on pedestal.
    1 12 port powered usb hub


    My first setup using eyefinity back in 2007 2008



    Then came the Saitek switch panel which started the downward spiral of things to come.



    Then i upgraded to a fully functional 757 and took weeks to learn how to operate a real 757.



    Then came the Saitek Radio Panel, and got me to create a center pedestal. My background in Automotive Repair made creating switches for parking brake and
    fuel Cut off made it easier for me to do. YOu see the skeleton of the pedestal here.



    Here you see the someone finished pedestal and backlit indicators all painted.



    Then came a Program called AIRDISPLAY from avatron. which allows you to add a tablet or WiFi device as an extended monitor adding to already
    my 4 monitor setup with no cables. I found this 9.7 ips teclast dual core TPAD on amazon for 199$ rocking 4.3 ics droid. Now i can drag the 757 flight management
    computer off my monitor and over to a touch screen tablet.



    here is the more finished pedestal with FMC flight management computer bezel mounted.




    I then upgraded my throttles to the dual saitek throttles which have more distance in angle and mounted this way give a real angle.

    I ordered a 757 handle kit from a friend i met from Italy online and designed a flap detent modification the throttles using MY DIY



    3/8 aluminum bar form around the throttles and cut and angle a bolt hole for mounting.




    File down using a round file to 4/32nds, and align to where you marked the flap detents using flight simulator.



    My design schematic.







    Also made this custom template



    The handle kit from
    FlightSimPM










    My finished throttle assembly withmy custom flat detent. spring return handle.



    Simulator as it was in early 2013, used a dvi splitter for the First officer view which mirrored my display.




    Then Came the XFX HD7870 ghz edition which allowed me to have up to 6 displays.

    I purchased another 23" aoc monitor from BB for around 125$ and split my 2 displays giving me almost 55 inches of wide display running true HD 5868 x 1080 and bottom display 1920 x 1080




    Further Modified the FMC so it was not in the way of the throttles, and angled as it is in real life.




    My Current Display which the TABLET using air display via wifi.



    then purchased the Butt Kicker Simulation kit, mounts under my seat and feel lifelike clunks and bumps adds so much immersion.
    I also just recommend this for anything, Music games, it adds so much immersion.



    And finally My Current Setup as of 2014


    Well i hope you all liked my timeline build of my flight simulator.

    regards.

    I have the same set of pedals and the Stearing Yolk at my School for our Flight Sim, where'd you get all this FLight Sim Gear?

    As a retired Air Traffic Controller (28 years) and long time private pilot (36 years) as well as a a long time Flight-Simmer (25 years), let me compliment you on your wonderful cockpit creation! Your effort, creativity, and pure hard work have paid off in a home cockpit that is truly a work of art. As your 757 is still a labor-of-love-in-progress, I can only imagine what 2015 will look like.

    Mega-kuddos to your effort and success. Enjoy and expand your creation in good health, my friend.

    Bob

    Thank you for your kind words Bob, the last 2 years i have expanded my learning and training on real world procedures, : ifr clearance, ground , following STID and STAR procedures, how to read and write flight plans, learing center of gravity on planes, how to operate in IFR VFR airspace, using load sheets basicaly i mimic a real 757 pilot from start to finish, My impression is to do just that, do what a real airline pilot does, from the ground up spent alot of time learning systems. So my simpit reflects doing so, Notice i have a FMC and used my tpad as a touch screen. Knowing how to program the flight management computer and knowing how LNAV and VNAV work. i feel competent in able to land a real b752 in real world scenario.


    Thank you again for your kind words, I am currently in process in making my overhead panel. I already procured the square push button switches, and spring return to center rotary knobs, just need the time to assemble and wire, and permission from wifey to built it bigger :P
