I've got the 737 DSDT and love it.  Very jealous you're getting the overhead and pedestal as well.  Those are on my list but gonna gonna be a while before I can afford to pick those up. 

 

I've got a Jetmax throttle on the way.  Will be here Friday.  That has been sorely missing from my setup.  Can't wait.  And chomping at the bit for the new MCP and EFIS to become available.  It's looks awesome!

 

Sigh, if only we were all millionaires!

Hi,

 

Current setup is not much. Three Samsung SyncMaster T260HD monitors run via i4790K and a Titan Black video board. The hardware consists of PFC Column yoke, VRAC Boeing Throttle Quad and Revolution 737 rudder pedals.

What are you going to go with for avionics software?   Highly recommend Prosim737 running your avionics from a second PC.

Hi,

 

This will be a five computer setup, I'm running 5-i4790K computers with 4-Titan X video boards and 3-Nvidia 610's to run the avionics. I'll be running the latest version of Sim-Avionics.

Very nice and I WAS happy with my Jet-max 737 throttle, 737 yoke, and 727 captains seat now it just seems like child's play after reading your new setup. Looking forward to photos one of these days I will upgrade to the single seat 737 and overhead from Jet-max flying the desk is getting old.

Hi,

 

I've been waiting and saving for this ever since this company first started, I'm now setup and ready for the installation. I went and purchased a Sony HANDYCAM to video the build.

 

I still don't believe it and I don't think I'll be able to picture this, until it's setup in my home. Just seems so unreal. Getting what is shown below, but I'm extending the view from 200* to 220*.

Hi Guys,

Hi Guys,

 

She has arrived and has been unpacked, my wife and I have taken some photos and will get them online ASAP... She is one WELL BUILT, SOLID product, made with QUALITY material. You don't see that all that much now-a-days. A company that takes pride in what they do, it shows in the final product. Thanks Pete, Steve and the whole crew at FDS.

 

Outstanding product with fantastic after sale support, I would have NO PROBLEM recommending Flight Deck Solutions to anyone looking to purchase flight sim hardware... and for those of us in the States, we have a favorable exchange rate. :lol:

 

Pics coming in about 30 minutes.
