Awesome! I would love to have a home A320 cockpit.

 

By the way, love that sidestick from the last picture too.

I have a similar one at home, so I can start building! :wink:

i'm seriously thinking about this, to use with awesome FSL A320. And i have two similar sidesticks, for both sides  :wink:

I've read somewhere A320 home cockpit is much cheaper then 737 BTW

Yes. This was the reason that I changed the project. Airbus has a "digital" control. Mechanical solutions means more money :)
A320 is much simpler: pedestal, MIP, overhead, flight control, lighting. And there is free JeeHell FMGS!!!

I would love to do this too.  I myself just recently stopped a 737 build.  Partly due to money.  But, the other part due to how do you just fly one single aircraft type?  For me, I can't commit to just one any more.  I used to.  When I was working for an airline that flew only 737, that's all I ever flew.  But, now, with the handful of excellent quality add ons we have and, the couple that are coming out for P3D sometime in the next century(FSLabs, hurry up!!!), I don't think I can restrict myself to just one aircraft type again.

Awesome!

I am in the early stages of building one.

 

Question what kind of screen did you decide on?

3 projectors, 160 degrees?

 

I am still struggling to decide on the best visual system. Have plenty of room.

 

Thanks for any feedback!

Why one aircraft?

This is one cockpit - right.  But I can connect a monitor, joystick, I can install PMDG - I can do it exactly like you. Desk stands near the cockpit :)

I can use the same main PC... 

But I still don't know the A320 enough...

3 projectors, 180 degrees. This is pretty good for me.

Looks great ToTom :) I like what you've done with the visuals.

 

How much space are you requiring? I will see if I can squeeze into my space a 120 degree curve screen (one projector)

 

Regards,

 

Ben
