|Flight Simulation \Flight Controls\Cockpits|
|For some people, a joystick / HOTAS
controller setup is simply not enough! For these people (I am just
beginning to "dabble") who want the ULTIMATE in immersion in the virtual
flight experience - a working cockpit is the only solution!
Click on the links at left to see some amazing home-built "cockpits" - and PC In-/Out-put interfaces such as the flexible "X-Keys" keyboard simulator - which lets you program a mechanical switch to send keyboard "keystrokes" - to higher end I/O hardware like the Beta Innovations and EPIC for full-blown interactive cockpit simulations.
Below - you can follow my (slow!) development of my own home cockpit. I am basing it largely on an F-16, since I have the F-16 replica Cougar - and I enjoy F4 Falcon immensely.
