Home cockpit

Post by pilot_alex_14 » Wed Nov 29, 2006 3:43 am

Hey there fellow simmers im planning on building a mini cockpit to make FSX moe fun :D Im not building like the super ones with guages and so on because i dont have that much money, so here are the following things i need advice on wich are the best but not to pricey, I need a yoke system,rudder padels, and throttle. I want them to feel as realistic as possible so when i lift the 767 i can feel it or when i lift the cessna there is a difference. Thank you in advance. I prefer shops in CANADA because it will be more convinient for me to get it something like this http://www.flightsim.no/cockpit/bilder/ ... 020052.JPG

You'all should check out the following link. I purchased two devices from them and I have greatly improved the quality of my flying. I have their models 1010 and 1020.

Rather than using the default settings for the Model 1010, I chose to make a simple paper overlay and reprogrammed the switches (as simple as programming your Joystick or Yoke). By creating a template for my overlay, this gives me the ability to change my mind often whenever I want to reprogram the switches. 8) 8)
