I now have a center mount joystick (instead of the side mounted.)

Lou where is the throttle handle made with a half of a pair of pliers. I do not see it there! It must be in a special place inside your museum that you have there. I remeber when you made that throttle a while back.

In case you're wondering what I use the big screen for driving

Hi Dutch,
As you'd expect it runs very well, but I think the monitor refresh rate limits it to rock solid 60 FPS with everything max'd out.
Sat close to the curved screen adds much to the immersion of WOFF yep

Here is what I use,I admit it looks a bit modern for just flying WoFF. But I like to fly other sims aswell. It is still missing a second screen in the center dashboard though.

Holy schnikee! Lausbub78 your set-up, and for that matter Sanbagger's as well, are phenomenal. So cutting edge.

Yes Lausbub78 that is an impressive setup.
I've been toying with the idea of getting into custom panels.

Thanks guys. Been a long way till I got there. The Throttle was the last part I added,after a long search for something that would fit my needs.

Stache, I use three Leo Bodnar controller boards,the throttle quadrant runs on one of them. Those boards are pretty much straight forward and easy to use. There are also versions where you don't need to solder anything. Except for soldering wiring to switches,but not to the board itself. They use push-in conectors. Hardest part was to find a good layout for the buttons and switches.

Edit: I forgot to mention,that for WoFF a controller needs atleast a X and Y axis. Otherwise it will no be seen as controller by the sim. Every other sim works without problems. I saw you are using Thrustmaster MFD's,I guess they don't work too in WoFF and you need to program them in TARGET to use key inputs?

Yeah I have heard a lot about the Bodnar boards.

That is correct I use Target to define the key inputs.
Even if the would work - using Target makes more sense, easier to just use standard mappings for sims and have different Target scripts for each.

For Christmas I got a little screen to put behind a MFD.
I plan to program some graphics so I have it apply to WOFF and then change for other sims, rather than changing the slide in preprinted card.
Will see how far I get...

My rig is old and not "multi stuff" ! Just a Origin "Silver Stone" desk top, a pair of very old BOSE speakers
and a 16000 stick. All is on a very small build in slide out desk within our 36 foot 5th Wheel RV. I fly only at night making sure my wife's reading light behind me is on low intensity and keeping the volume down is a must. The good news is I get to spend the winter in Arizona and the summer in Steamboat Springs Colorado.
I almost forgot to mention my new benQ screen.

I would say that some of your "rigs" come close to our total size of 400 sq Feet.


Origin made- silverstone case,ASUS Max VI Extreme , CPU intel Core i7 4770k, cooling asotex 570LC, NVIDA 3G GTX 780 Ti , Mem 16GB Kingston Hyper X DDR3 ,game drive 120GB INTEL X25 SS, OS drive 1TB, Win 7 home Prem.Logitech G105 key board,BenQ XL2430 Gaming Monitor.

While waiting for my new VKB Gunfighter Pro joystick to ship, I happened to notice a sale at Newegg.
Been waiting for the price of the Acer XB41HU to drop and this was the lowest I'd see it, plus it had 3 day shipping for $10.

Still have some tweaking to do, but here is the first attempt - 7680 x 1440 - Six (6) feet wide.
Need to figure out how to get screen shots with nvidia surround active.
Next year Dayton trip should be fun, I am building a new system for my friend James who helped us out last year.
Should have two high powered systems there.

I can SEE ! dancinfools
