Our college has 3 Simulators.
I took one over.
This is better than my headplay goggles... and much more comfortable.

Wow!! Where can I get more information on this setup!?

The 3 simulators together run close to half a million bucks and come from Sweden (?).

The one in the photos runs on 3 PCs running specialized OS and software with top of the line graphic systems.

It uses a single projector, but the red chaired model you see partially in one of the pics uses 3 projectors from the back of the screen and shows 3D quite realistically.

The DIYDrones logo was just for show, as is the aircraft cockpit instrument panel on the small kneeboard monitor, and the pilot name label on the arm-rest.

The FPV display on the screen did not photograph well.

@ Sgt Ric Hi ! What are they simulating? I see they have a curve in the arm rests to hold their fore arms firm ' I wonder if they wear a wrist brace as well The equipment looks kind of "home brew' 3D would be really freaky! I checked your web page and photos . I see you have some interesting air craft hanging from the ceiling. You have been at this for a while. Have a Great Day!

My mouth said... "My head says I hate you so much"    But my heart says "I love you!"  Awesome set up man!  That rig will not work with things that are in my house, which is mostly my wife.

What about us lefties!??

Oh, but the sticks are fully re-configurable for either side.
I was working on the 3D projectors in the background... They bring a whole new level to the simulators!
