There's a slide show of the set up on the Aussie Star website

 

Hi Greg,

 

Just watched your slide show...that's a great setup you have there. Very impressive.

 

Cheers,

Gibbo

That is a great setup there Villan! I like how you have arranged the Saitek ProFlight Modules in your custom "rack".

Thinking of making a change to my setup and the best way to see what it would look like is to make it in 3D.

Still WIP on the 3D side of things and still have to work out my trim wheel and throttle quadrants for jets.

Looks good already Darryl. Is that using Sketchup?

Very nice indeed Darryl.  Makes mine look a bit basic but ah heck one has to start somewhere.  I'm impressed with the 3D concept design.  how much has it cost you in set up to date?

Greg

 

Using the price from pc aviator for the Saitek gear is $1660

Track IR5 with pro clip $250

PC would set you back maybe about $3000

Total $4910

Now im thinking of going to 27" screens or bigger lol

 

One RIG at one stage was about $5000 that's when parts were not cheap and using a 42" plasma as the screen no flight controls.

 

With all the add-ons I have its just to much to think about the total cost.  

 

I have 3 PC's that can run FSX and one of them has video cards in it that cost me $1990 for 2 of them this was when the best cost you a arm and a leg.

Sometimes I would buy my new parts and then sell the old and get a good % back to keep the cost down. Now days i don't sell off the parts because the RIG's i still have are really fast.

 

I only fly paywear  planes 99.9% of the time with FPS at about 80 and big jets like the PMDG 777 is about 40 FPS.

 

---------------------------------------

 

Dean yes its Sketchup I use it as I know a guy with a 3D printer that I get one off things made and even had some flight controls made one time.

 

I could be at Bunnings this weekend getting what I need to get a start on it and the cost would be under $40 to make it.
