I would buy a new computer for my 3D Groundstation ... What do you think about the Commodore 64.
I put it in my wish list ;)
Hi Ritchie yes is true but to have a old C64 case with inside a good cpu with advanced 3d board is more Geek ;)
You can connect a FPV eyewear.
TRS80, Atari ST I modded with another stack of 512k memory chips for 1 meg total so I could have a ram disk to make my Kings Quest and Leisure Suit Larry load faster.... Then a Intel DX33 that I swapped in a 36Mhz crystal so I had bragging rights with my brother in law about who's machine could load Lynx Golf screens faster. :-D
Here's a trip down memory lane.
System 80 (aka Genie / TRS80) with extra 32K ram chips piggy backed, and a Z80A upgrade from the Z80 --> Amstrad 6128 --> IBM XT (orig) --> 80286 (NEAT chipset) etc..
With some hardcore Z80, I recon the Amstrad would run the ground station (forget the google maps though).
not quite as old school as a C64 - but I am thinking one of these fit-pc's might be worth looking at so I have ordered one to try, it uses less than 20 watts @12v so running in the field will be an option. I just need a ultra low power 15-20 inch screen to go with it.
