DIY Roll-Away Flight Simulator

September 11, 2012 in Diy projects

www.DIYflightsims.com The DIY Roll-Away Flight Simulator is the most unique and mobile concept for a full-featured home flight simulator. Unfold the compact frame to reveal airplane controls and a modified keyboard. Plug in the monitor cable to your big living room TV and start your computer! We can show you how to build one of these. You download the Do-It-Yourself video and instruction manual from the DIY Flight Sims website. Build the frame from PVC pipe and wood boards. Simply buy the materials from your local home improvement store. You can get the joystick, throttle, and rudder pedals from a variety of online retailers, like Amazon.com The computer, speakers, power strip and all peripherals are onboard the frame. You can include TrackIR also. Most modern TVs are compatible with the video signal from a computer. Check your equipment to determine if your video card output options will work with your TV’s input options. After your flight simulator adventure, you can easily shut down, fold up, and roll away your home-made airplane cockpit. Roger Dodger Aviation

DIY Triple Screen Flight Simulator

September 7, 2012 in Diy projects

www.DIYflightsims.com Thank you to Shannon Walsh, Chris Williamson and the National Airline History Museum. This is the DIY Triple Screen Flight Simulator. We can show you how to build one of these home flight simulators. You can download the Do-It-Yourself video and instruction manual from the DIY Flight Sims website. The frame is built from PVC pipe, styrofoam insulation and some wood boards. Buy the materials from your local home improvement store. You can get the yoke, rudder pedals and throttle quadrant from a variety of online retailers. We’re using the Matrox Triple Head to Go to run the three monitors. The three monitors wrap around your field of view a bit and effectively immerse you in the action. This is a big project, but the cockpit enclosure separates into two parts, so you can still move it through standard doorways. We show you how to spraypaint the keyboards and modify them with button labels to resemble airliner control panels. The different button templates show you how to make panels for a CRJ700, Boeing 737, or Airbus 321. Download the DIY videos, instruction manuals and button templates from the DIY Flight Sims website. You don’t have to wait for anything to get shipped to you.
