Homemade Flight Simulator

at 5:56 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks


When thinking of new projects it is a good idea to think big, not sure I would have ever thought of building a Flight Simulator though. 🙂

“In 1998 I began the design and constuction of my 747-400 simulator. The approximate size of the simulator is 13ft wide x 11ft long and 9ft high. It will include every switch and panel in the 747-400. The Simulator has been built to accept full motion and visuals at a later date.”

    Absolutely flabergasted. It must have cost a fair few quid/bucks to complete but totally worth it. If I ever find myself in a financial position to make one, I’ll look you up.
    How much did it cost? Was it difficult? What level of expertise is required?

    Wow! That’s insane! Kudos to you.

    kinda noisy though eh? Is that the compressor for the psuematics?

    I’ll bet you hardly notice it when you are flying though.
