Working time approx. 200 hrs. April - June 2015
Initially, I was planning to take the easy path and use one single monitor in F-35 style to show all the cockpit displays and instruments, in order to have the sim ready to fly sooner.
But I knew that this would make me regret it every time I looked at it, since a flat cockpit is a gross contradiction to the beautiful geometry of the real F/A-18E cockpit (which has 5 offset screens and a standby instrument panel, all at different angles).
So I decided to stick to the real thing and use separate monitors too. This made building the "MIP" more challenging than expected. The 6 monitors I use run on a second PC and receive display data through FSDisplays (formerly FSXspy) over a network.
For the left and right DDIs I use 7" display-sets bought from pollin.de. For The MPCD and the standby instruments I found some used 10" VGA displays on ebay. The UFCD is a 7" touch monitor by faytech.
Sorry, no posts here yet... go ahead and be the first ;)
