They are chair mounts by Interface Dynamics, which sadly are no longer around. It's a platform with a pole on a swivel joint that is metal banded around the front of the arm rest. Then velcro straps to secure the HOTAS to the platform.



Here are the Logitech speakers and the mount I built and painted from some housing frame joints:


The cables for the speaker and HOTAS that I have running off on the left side to the PC:


We just got into a new place, and I've got my own study/PC room now. It's coming together, so here's a more recent pic:

PC is hidden inside the side (with exhaust fans and air ducts) - the seat is mounted on a hollow wooden box that contains a home theatre sized buttkicker LFE. Don't have a touchscreen yet - haven't really needed it with the CH MFP's being present.

What WW2 Fighter pilots say about Angels and Airspeed:

"Nice job of getting down to the basics - love your choice of a cover!" Col. Clarence 'Bud' Anderson

"I have enjoyed reading angels and airspeed, it should prove good reading for all interested in combat tactics and their application related to the fluid air environment and state of technology in WWII years. All the best as you make it available." - Col. Charles McGee - Tuskegee Airman

Very nice setups, pretty impressive.
Argon, you are clearly the type one enters your room and knows immediately what your hobby is ...
I am thinking of pimping my spartan, hard wooden Sim chair seeing all this.

My Obutto arrived on Tuesday...would definitely recommend one to anyone serious about flight sims. I'm just waiting for the active adapter to arrive from Amazon today and will have Eyefinity set up and the 3 monitors working.

As an aside, this was a birthday gift from my gf...she might be a keeper clapping

Awesome setup Deacon! You've got all the best toys there! smile

I'm torn between a triple monitor setup like yours or adding a second projector to my existing one and building a curved screen. I think space will be the limiting factor.

My very much 'work in progress' pit:

Hello there,
I am the first time here and I like the idea very much to show us each other our "HomeBirds" and I appreciate really what I saw in here. So, up to me, I proudly present my "StealthBoard"

everything is looking "normal", apart from the Saitekrudders

but then, a thrustmaster 16.00o pops up

ooops, Quadrant and Belkin gamepad, I wouldn't like to miss it

In function now: A modified cyborg-gold as elevator trim

Projector at six o'clock high and TIR on 12 o'clock low - allright for Chocs away!

Hm, nobody reacts to this ? What a shame, really... so I will, though I am no cockpit aficionado owning just a wooden chair modified with some planks and having only one small monitor.

Welcome to SimHQ and congrats to your 007 Sim Gear. Most impressive, indeed.
Best of all, your thing looks completely unintrusive and does not ruin the living room.
Well done. Thx for sharing that.

Michael.

Love the stealth setup! I can't help but hear transformer-like sound-effects as each picture progresses. smile
