Good to hear from you again. Hope you are well. Lots of rules here in the states and can be a pain also but we are surviving regardless of our irrational government.
Enjoyed revisiting our conversations of 2019 but what is brooklyne posting all about?
Hi Jay, Has it really been that long? Wow!
I gues it was Spam Spam Spam. Now delected and blocked. Kind Regards Karl
Thats some model railway you must have, nice work and of course your skills will come in handy when you get into your planned 737 sim build.
All the best,
I am glad that you shared this article. Shaukeens
Both us of have looked at your photo. And wow. Thats a masterpiece in its own right!
Here are Karls versions of his sim's:
Version1 sim: 20cm smaller in diameter than the real thing. This caused the first officer side to take a hit and bit to small, This was no good if you fancy having a friend around and a beer.
Version 2: Full size, and it nearly worked. It would have been fine, but would have needed to elongate the front windows to fit. Therefore moving away from actual full sim size.
Version 3: Proven fullsize sim. every component was drawn up in CAD, built and proven to fit. Its the closet thing we have seen so far for ultimate accuracy (for DIY builds) I imagine the big FS companies are spot on. But let me tell you, Karl is not allowed to spend that type of money!
As for software, The big one! Prosim was only 400/600 euros when Karl purchased it. Expensive then, but now out of our budget along with many others. However, hands down the easiest and most awesome interface software available. Mobiflight is primarily designed to work with Prosim or PMDG or GA aircraft.
This will not work with Xplane. Of course the sim build is the same, but electronics will differ. X-plane is massively growing in popularity and is backed by simvim and Zibo. These are only getting better all the time. From what we have seen, the graphics look stunning. And of course its budget friendly.
I hope thats helps, any more questions please ask.
My CTC I built.
I am interested in building a captain's side 737. Don't have the room in a spare room for a full size or so I think. Presently I have a Saitek yoke and TQ. Planning on buying another TQ. Also using FSX Steam on Steam but am planning on purchasing X Plane 11 but not on Steam. Want to build as much as I can rather than buy. Experienced in building stuff as well as electronics. See attached SIM of a railroad CTC I built for my model railroad signaling system. Also have a little bit of experience with Arduinos. I am a bit confused about all the versions of SIM you have built. Wondering which plans and information on here applies to which version. Also will the software and hardware you used suitable for X Plane or was it for P3D or FSX? Also is the information on the $38 MIP for the latest version? In other words can I download the information and order the parts? Also is there a less expensive solution than Prosim?
I will post a photo of my CTC in a second post as I tried it previously and it never did post.
Thanks so much
