These pictures were taken by a crappy camera phone with (almost) nothing powered on (including all the HUD screens small and large).
All switches and consoles are functional as well as completely tandem joystick and all parts aircraft original.
Upon final build completion I will make sure to post HD pics instead of bad camera phone pics.
- Pilots window (outside view)
- Three front screens in temporary setup (65" x 3)
- Front / Middle Console
- Overhead Console
You get the basic idea. Anyone care to help with opinions on a massive build w/ oc on Graphics vram and CPU?
NOTE: This is for FINAL build. There are already 2 other systems (and a thin client or two) running other systems (consoles, HUD's, etc). Their specs are i5-2500k @ 4.3Ghz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 560ti's.
This final build needs to power the FSX app with an additional 400GB+ of data to access on app modifications + maps, view unique images on 5 HD screens (65"FR, 65"FL, 65"CTR, 60"RR, 60"RL)
