Modest 'EyeCandy' Enhancement to VRInsight 737 Overhead

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I applied some small enhancements to my recently purchased VRInsight 737 overhead.

 

When I bought it from VRInsight, I asked them to include some extra knobs (to fill the missing plates) which I attached with some blu-tack..

 

I also printed out some guages (30mm and 20mm), and found some cheap plastic compasses on ebay, which I cracked open to use as bezels for the dummy gauges.

 

I think that having some dummy bits in the "blank" areas makes a big difference to the asthetics and makes the unit look more complete.

 

Anyone else with this overhead, please post a reply.

Mount the overhead on the wall using a vesa wall mount, lay some black cloth sheeting across the top and down to the monitors and you get a cheap cockpit shell.

 

An iPad provides a separate instruments display, and a $50 Pendo hosts a virtual CDU which interfaces to the PMDG NGX.
