My cockpit at the moment - for those who have a MSSW2 joystick will see the sense of scale smile

I got fed up with being on the road (a lot) and not being able to play stuff so last week I expensed a 'dev laptop' with an i7 2.6, 16GB RAM, a GT540M 2GB, 256GB SSD.

It's hilariously small, i.e. a 11 inch display and weighs about 4lb! Can hold it with one hand when doing the airport security dance too. Not something I'd buy with my own money, but it's amazing how small/powerful these things are getting.

PS Apologies for the photo quality, but I thought it would be funny to show the wee beast in contrast with these great cockpits.

PPS Yes, it plays CoD well. It makes long flights go faster too. smile

Nice! And it works!

Any luck getting the joystick through security as carry-on? LOL

Lol - confession time: I just use a PS3 controller when traveling. I put the joystick in the pic as a kind of 'Pickaxe Next To Yeti Footprint' scale guide.

It would be kind of funny to whip out the stick while on a real flight though - 'Stewardess, my yaw pitch is off, get the Captain!'. Plus the hand-luggage xray profile would get me marked on the deviants list I'm sure.. smile

HI guys!
I reply from DocW's post, just to say thank you to all for your gorgerous coments & compliments! Though, I must say to FearlessFrog soundwise, my STEALTHBoard could be still improved, I'm just waiting for a soundmod, which can do that what is in FearlessFrog's ears - without getting banned on Steam ;-)
To ArgonV and VA_Deacon: The thing, I like most on realy good Simulations & SimGears are haptic aspects - But, like in Reality, you spend more time on the ground, to keep your engine in a good state, than flying around. So do I, by handycrafting in my workshop.
To Ajay: Yes, I am a painter, that's why don't have a pilot license, simply too much other things to do. Maybee, if Randy Roads, Bon Scott, have had a real good Sim like CoD or IL2, maybee they would be still allive? no, that's rubbish, Randy just was in the wrong plane :-(
Last but not least to Michael alias DocW:
In deed, with the OO7 Simgear, I was able to catch her, Wow- it works fantastic, thank U ,Q!



And you're right, it doesn't mess up the livingroom;-)

Some really nice cockpits and setups here.
This is my effort, i just recently finished the computer upgrade. Completed over many months, waiting for parts and sometimes waiting for spare cash!
I have the X52 throttle now mounted to a camera tripod and I rest the joy stick on a mouse mat sitting on the computer when I wheel it out from the desk.

What type of case is that cube? It's not from Yeong-Yang, not the YY-0221 nor the YY-04x0.

That system is, well, just phat. I'd hate to drop a screw in there - you'd never find it. Or the family dog.

By Odin's Beard, I could keep the cockpit I posted under his mouse, and he'd never find it!

Good set-up!

Its from the US, Mountain Mods Extended Ascension. $1000 au shipped to Australia, so not the cheapest case around. But it was the only case that would fit everything. I used to have this setup below with 2 cases with an externally connected water loop between them. Left one for computer and right one dedicated cooling case.

I had a baby coming so I had to consolidate everything down to a smaller space and keep it tidy as its now in sitting in the front dinning room as apposed to dedicated 'office'.

Is that a Samsung 9000 series? I have one of those. Is there any input or display lag?
