Lilliput Touch Screen in the pit

Recommended Posts

Some time ago somebody was talking about the use of touch screens in the pit.Well I went & blew some cash to see if it would work & it sure does, I am very impressed with the results.Here is some info that I posted on my progress reports back at simhardware." So I have now got hold of a Lilliput 7" High res Touch screen which I plan to use as an FMC in the pit, I am currently driving that display with a second video card in the PC No. 1 (The FS PC) So the FS PC has 3 displays attached to it. I am most impressed with the lilliput display, very easy to read, touch screen works like a charm, but they aren't cheap, I landed it here from Hong Kong through ebay for $379 Ozzy Dollars including shipping/Insurance. As you can see I had it running the standard FS radio stack, it was fully operational just using your finger for touching the screen, you do get a stylus with the unit but it is not really required to operate the radio stack. I have also tested it with the Project Magenta's Boeing FMC, it works flawlessly. I am building a hardware radio stack but I thought it would be worth the experiment to see how it handled it. The lilliput touch software fully supports multiple screens, Right mouse clicks, It is a USB hardware interface, It also allows for an invisible mouse cursor, however that would be system wide, so your mouse cursor will go invisible on all monitors, keep that in mind. The lilliput monitor would be a great asset in any pit, particularly flying online, this monitor could be very easily used for Squawkbox access & in conjuction with windows XP's on screen keyboard, you can have text based access back to the controllers if the need arises, without the need of a mouse or keyboard in the sim.
