but the digial download is faster

hi hardy

your sim is great

the flight dynamics   its like flying a real full motion airline training sim

how simalar is the flight model  in your  sim to say a CAE 747 full motion sim

braking mometum  down the runway feels right

and
during the approach to landing the control colums  is pulled back in you lap with big aileron movements
 so that matches you tube 747 cockpit landing vids

xplane 12 got a virtual cockpit

hi

looking for pics from left seat cockpit perspective  of a 747 400  and 747-8i

pic to be looking straight foward at the main instrument panel  or primary flight instruments  with the glare and some of the front window showing
so can cut out the front window  for landing practice etc

for a single monitor flight sim

 so i can cut holes out of these pics as a png image  for the PFD ND ECAS  and EFIS MCP 
then overlay on xplane 12 scenery generator

i can pay for these if they are avalible on alamy or istock etc

4k or 8k res

this one from matterport would have been ideal but the model on matterport isnt avalible

Hello,

By chance anyone has any input in regard to these devices ? Would they work with PSX as IDU ?

https://winwingsim.com/view/goods-details.html?id=417

Eventually are there any better alternatives? (More or less for the same price..)

Many thanks.

Hi Guys,
I just want to say I was not having a shot at the cost of simulation panels, just the original aircraft panels.
As far as Sim panels go I was buying from Opencockpit until the cost of shipping went through the roof.

For example a circuit kit which cost 12 Euros to buy, cost 40+ Euros to ship to Australia. Most of the shipping rates went up rapidly when Covid hit and due to other world events have never come back down.

(I was even thinking of a trip to Europe with an empty suitcase to buy parts and bring them back with me  ;) ).

I have been a flight simmer since Microsoft released Flight Simulator for PC (old wireframe graphics) and even had a copy for my old Commodore 64.....

The reason I am building a cockpit is due to me being fascinated with electronics (38 years in ICT as well) and I love to build things...

I am sure there are many simmers that do not build cockpits and I have been one for many years.
I just like to challenge myself.

It is great to be part of a sim community where everyone is so helpful and supportive. I try to play my part and will help out were I can..

Cheers,
AlexB

Thx, have a nice weekend
