These shots are from Tony in Seattle, who has started his basement sim and is making great progress. He writes:
I see on your blog that your beginning to share projects that others are working on. I decided to send you a couple photos of the one I have in progress. I have been at it since the middle of last year I don’t have a lot of space at the moment nor money to throw at the simulator but what I have works fairly well and I can fly both VFR and IFR fairly easily. My simulator is no where near complete and is the bare minimum to get things up and running. I have added a few pictures if you would like to share I don’t mind at all and if you want more pictures I can send you some. My winter project will be to enclose my simulator and run a 3 screen setup simulator to yours but a tad little smaller. Long term goal is to build this simulator up enough to run a Cessna Caravan and even longer term goal is converting my wood working shop into a simulator room to support a 2 seat Dash 8 cockpit. Well that’s my dream anyhow.Not sure how you want to do this but I am also currently working on a MFD/GPS using the Sim Plugin MFD software and Thrustmaster Couger hardware. I know its not 100% accurate but it gives me a map, airport info and a few other tidbits that help in IFR. I can send you those photos as well and an updated one once I get the panel mounted in my simulator. Thanks again for all your hard work I look forward to many more videos and blog posts!
It’s my pleasure, Tony, and keep up the great work!
