    Well, I think I am “almost done!”….

    I havent set up the computer yet, and I know that will take some tweaking, but the actual construction is coming to an end….

    I will say this…It was alot of work…especially the inside walls…PITA! lol

    I still have to add the led lighting as well, but almost done… :)

    Looks great so far! I just built my frame and am slowly buying electronics for it. What generation IPads are you using? I have a spare computer monitor that I’ve thought about using for my instruments but I’ve been playing around with air manager on an ipad as well.

    Corey, I don’t use FSX, but if it’s anything like P3D might this help?

    Fantastic Sim! I noticed you are using 34mm x34mm beams… doesnt it wobble from side to side? When you are flying does it move so as to cause the projector to wobble as well?

    Looks great.  Im still a little confused with the side tv’s. I noticed that they are sitting on the two up rights, but what have you done to secure the TV at the top.  I can see two little black tabs protruding from the top of the TV.  Any other photos of the side tvs

    Hi all,

    Sorry for the delayed responses.

     

    Basement Fly Guy – Thanks.  Since moved on to XP11.  So all good with the views.

    C152 Steve –  It was a bit wobbly so to speak, but we added some more wood to the frame and stabilized it, along with the corregated plastic “skin”, it is pretty stable now.  Also, we do not use a projector – we use a curved 55 inch 4K tv.  Works great.

     

    Chris – We have the TVs held in by the corregated plastic “skin” on the sim.  If I were to do it again, I would make something a bit more stable.

    Hi Corey,

    I have been following your sim build, and bought a 55″ Sceptre as well.  I am driving it with an iBuyPower with an i7 7700, 16gb RAM and a GTX 1080, so I should have plenty of horsepower.  Running X-plane on a regular monitor I get between 95-105 fps, but when I connect the Sceptre TV, it drops to the mid 40s and seems a little jerky.  Just wondering if you had the same issue and how you configured your TVs.  I fear when I add the two 32″ side TV’s it will drop more. any advice or info on graphics setting, which HDMI port to use, etc would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Alan
