    Hello together,

    my Name is Florian from Germany (sorry for my broken english ;o) and i want to build a flight Simulator Cessna like ontheglideslope with wooden contruction. Now iam not really sure which Monitor or TVs on both sides i build in my Simulator. I think when i am sit in my Simulator and look to the side iam to near to the Monitor / TV so i cant see the landscape in Background very good.

    Is this true or i Imagine this ?

    A friend of me build in two Monitors    LG32MP58HQ   (32 Size , full HD and connected via HDMI)

    What do you build on the sides.

    It is grateful for any Response.

    Thank you very much !!

    Hi Florian,

    I have two TV’s for the side view. They run at 1920×1080 which is enough for a clear view. Both TVs are Samsung, they were not expensive at all and they do a great job!

    See this movie https://youtu.be/2Y6SNV1xdRw

    Good luck with your plans!

    Hello Florian,

    Please check the “What’s in the sim” page here http://www.ontheglideslope.net/in-the-sim/ for more details on what BFG uses.

    He uses 32″ HD TV’s for his side screens.

    Hi Florian,

    Thanks for your comment and I wish you great luck with your sim. I never mind my LED side TVs. They look great, are never warm or hot, and I have been able to match colors quite well with the front projector.

    Florian, the biggest issues for you are:

    • Resolution: should be 1080p, not 720p (most 32″ displays are 720P)
      • I tried a couple 720p displays I’ve got lying around, and they are just not high enough resolution
    • Video inputs
      • DVI (Best, IMO)
      • HDMI (Better, especially if you can get a DVI-HDMI converter cable)
      • VGA (Not good enough)
    • Size and weight: the ability to mount the side screens, either inside your sim’s frame, or on separate
      •  I have monitor stands I’m currently using. They cost $80 each on Amazon. There are a lot of options for sale in that price range. I just waited for something to go on sale, then pulled the trigger
      • BFG mounted his inside his frame. Check out the “What’s in the sim” section of this site.
    • How much are you willing to spend? Be ready to spend upwards of $200 for each 1080p screen, and also be advised, it’s getting more and more difficult to buy a screen withOUT being a Smart TV, which is something you don’t need, and don’t want to pay for.
    • How much can your video card handle? What type of video outputs does it have?

    Hope this helps.

    Dennis

    Hi,

    I bought SAMSUNG LT32E310EW screen for the side monitors and the samsung-ue58j5200     for the front screen. They are 1080 (full HD) resolution and I use HDMI cables to connect them to my computer.

    You can get them here:

    They look like this

     

    Good luck!

    looks great!  I am using ipads for the instruments as well….How did you cover them?  Just cut the wood with the circular openings and put it over the ipad?

     

    Thanks,
