  1. Hi all, I've just pulled the trigger and ordered some parts to start building my B737 home cockpit. While waiting for parts to arrive, I have to build my main PC which will be used for P3D, add-ons and ProSim. I'm leaning towards the following hardware: Case: Cooler Master Mastercase5 M/B: Asus ROG Maximus VIII Impact CPU: i7 6700K 4 GHz RAM: G.Skill RipjawsV (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 3200 MHz GPU: EVGA GTX 1070 PSU: Corsair 650 W 80+ Gold CS650M Modular Cooler: Corsair Hydro H80i GT SSD 1: Samsung 750 EVO 120 GB (for OS only) SSD 2: Samsung 750 EVO 250 GB (for P3D, add-ons, ProSim) My questions: I will overclock the CPU to 4.5 - 4.6 GHz. Is the cooler enough to handle it or should I choose a bigger one? I want to use 3 monitors 24" or 2 monitors 40" only for outside view. Will that be possible with that hardware? Will Windows 7 run ok with that configuration or should I go for Windows 10? All opinions and suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you in advance! Alex
  2. Hi all I hope you can help a complete newbie here. I am looking to build an overhead panel for the Aerosoft Airbus A318,A319,A320,A321. I have a lot of questions to ask you all. First off, for switches like ON OFF am I right in using SPST switches? E.g. landing gear Secondly, for switches such as, ON AUTO OFF. What switches do I use? Links? Does the full version of FSUIPC come with the mouse macro function? If so does it work with the Aerosoft Airbus? Also, does anyone have any links to a useful FSUIPC video using the mouse macro and the ON AUTO OFF switches? These are all the questions I can think of at the moment, although im sure there are many more to come Thanks a lot! I'd appreciate the help!

    Home Cockpit

    Hello, I wanted to share my actual Home Cockpit Project. I think that some of you should be interesting. I'm making a Home Cockpit of Cessna 182/206 for P3D and Xplane. The Flight Desk is made by Ruscool in New Zealand. I make the cockpit in Wood by my Carpenter. The Rudders come from TRC and the Yoke from Flight Illusion. More details in next posts... Here are some 3D views of the Cockpit : I also made a Facebook page :

    Q400 Cockpit

    Hi! I've just started a q400 project. Is it anyone else doing this who would like to share some experiences? I will soon be up an running with a webpage for the project.
  6. Hi guys, I've been wanting to build an A320 home cockpit for some time now, but I'm on a very strict budget. Is it possible to build an A320 cockpit similar to a Jetmax system? This is pretty much what I would need: PFD ND ECAM Mini-overhead ( EFIS + Master Caution+Master Warning Panel (Capt. Side) FCU and whatever else is on the captain's side of the MIP. How would I be able to do this? I'm not very crafty or tech-savvy when it comes to hardware. It doesn't have to be an EXACT replica, meaning I don't need the exact thrust levers or joystick (I'm using my Saitek throttles and my Logitech joystick) or any extras, like a pull out table. I just want it to be looking + working almost identically to a full size A320 sim. Thanks!
  7. Hello everyone, I posted a topic on because I would like to build a C172 home cockpit based on FSX, and the A2A C-172. I am a teenager starting flying lessons soon and would like to practice at home. The simulator would be based on the C172 but not exact. I'm probably going to base it off of Saitek panels because I have a low budget. Here's the post on mycockpit : Help would be much appreciated, thank you to all!

  9. Hi Eveeyone! This thing says I'm a newbie, I'm not - I just forgot my log in as it's been a while since I posted here! I was hoping I could reach out to the home cockpit building community here for some advice... I am in the planning and research stages of my dream to build a 737 flight deck with a full surround shell and everything, been delving pretty deep into a lot of stuff and so far have found that I have understood everything I've read ok apart from one thing - interface boards and interface software... it's confusing me ALOT. The general vibe I'm getting is that people are using the BU086X cards or the/ and the FDS SYS1X 2X 3X cards etc. What I don't understand is do you for example have to have an interface card that comes from the same manufacturer as your hardware in order to interface it? So does for example the FDS SYS1X from flit deck solutions only interface products bought from/ branded FDS products? Or like I hope (& will make so much more sense) you can interface any hardware throughout it? - stuff from flight illusion. Cpflight etc? Can't find the answer to this anywhere.... Also - are certain cards good for certain things? Like I read somewhere that the FDS SYS1X is a good option to use to interface an overhead as it has a lot more inputs and outputs? Or is it widely known that any card can be used for any part of the cockpit? Last thing is, can anyone point me in the direction of any tutorials, videos or blogs of how to physically wire spokething into an interface card? I'd really like to see the process of taking a wire from a switch for e.g. And seeing spomeone soulder it into a card and ten interface it in a PC? What in your experience are the best value for money cards? And interface software packages? And do the software packages like FDS INTERFACE IT only work with FDS Cards? Or can the FDS software solution be used to programme any card? Thanks is much for your help! Hoping to gather as much info as I can! See you in the virtual skies! Mitch31388 😁
  10. Hey everyone. I just got a Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System and so far it is great. Now I have this message stuck in my subconscious: Build a 737 Home Cockpit. Just do it. Okay, sounds simple enough. Not. :( I have looked EVERYWHERE I can think of to find ways to build this that will make sense to me (YouTube, Google, Yahoo) and I just can't find any websites that give me a simple way to build the 737-800's cockpit in my basement. This is how I want to build my cockpit: I want to buy it piece by piece but I do not want to have to buy EVERY SINGLE SWITCH ONE AT A TIME. That may have been a bit confusing. Basically, I want to buy the complete front panel, then some more displays, then the complete throttle quadrant, then the complete overhead panel, then the complete pedestal. But even if I find a place to buy all those things, I may have another problem. My computer. My computer is a Mid-2010 13-inch MacBook. 2.4 GHz processor, 8GB RAM, and 512GB SSD. I play FSX on BootCamp. It runs all my add-ons (GEX, REX, UTX, PMDG 737) with decent FPS. However, I am a bit worried about connecting everything to my computer. On my computer, I have one Ethernet port, one Mini DisplayPort (display connections), two USB ports, and one headphone jack. To sum it up: 1. Where can I buy complete, plug-and-play parts of the cockpit? (e.g. buy the complete front panel, the complete throttle quadrant, the complete overhead panel etc.) 2. How would I connect everything to my computer? USB hubs may help, but what about displays? Would I be able to keep a steady frame rate? Giving me a little bit of a tutorial would be extremely helpful :lol: Sorry if that was all a little confusing. Thanks everyone! -hayhay7789 B)
