Perhaps the Ultimate Home Simulator?

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine shared a picture of his new home simulator. He lives in Las Vegas, and had a new addition to his home constructed, and commissioned this B777 "home cockpit". ~$600,000 including the building addition. It is run by six computers loaded with P3Dv4 (started with P3Dv3):

No, he has no wife at present. He owns a number of businesses but is not a real pilot. He has a lot of active and retired commercial pilot friends who are teaching him how to "fly" his modest simulator. :biggrin:

I've got to plan a vacation trip somewhere, maybe Nevada--does he rent this out when he's not using it? :biggrin:

Wow!  I think I would need motion platform though.

Do you happen to know if those are behind screen projectors ... would love to see this in motion as I can't see any image overlap at all.

Very nice indeed.

 

Cheers, Rob.

I think that 600k is overpriced or not?

I would more spend on this one. LoL

I could buy a Piper Arrow III with less than 3,000 hrs TT for 1/5th the price and have a moving platform.

Only problem there is you will have ongoing costs each and every year, year in, year out. This is from an aircraft owner!
