I just recently finished building my first gaming PC and combat flight sim setup. I also got a little creative and built a fighter pilot type helmet that is fully compatible with trackir5 pro clip and aviation type headsets (for comfort). Check out my attached pics below
Thanks Andy. I usually leave the lights mostly white on the PC and slightly dimmed during gameplay. Works great with the tint in the Google's. Also have a pair of the mirror spherical Google's that works just as good with no IR interference with trackir5. I was indeed going for a futuristic cyborg f-35 type look once I started to assemble the pieces. So far so good👍🏽
I just wanted to share my design of a full size aircraft joystick based around the IL2 Sturmovik WWII fighter. It is mainly built from steel and aluminium, and uses a potentiometer on each axis connected to the excellent Leo Bodnar control board. I have added motorcycle steering dampers to each axis which gives the stick a more realistic feel, and am currently looking at building other designs, especially early aircraft types, e.g. WWI / WWII . Feel free to get in touch and ask any questions... Thanks a lot!

I have just finished this full size flightsim joystick, made from steel and brass, loosely based around the Royal Aircraft Factory SE5 stick (first flight around 1917). The brass paddles connect to microswitches which are wired to a Leo Bodnar control board I use for the main joystick control. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions...
