CRJ Throttle

Hi everyone. I found through this forum about 2 weeks ago someone who had a really nice homemade throttle in their sim and a link to the builder. That builder had also made a CRJ throttle quadrant, and I'm looking for his or her contact information. I've gone through I don't know how many links and ...

Ya, it has to fit in with the cirriculum however, and a CRJ works better. The ERJ or Saab is another viable option. The 737 is a bit of a strech since it'd be a foreign carrier or Southwest that would be options to hire. The 747 does look absolutely awesome. If matt, you see this, give me a buzz, I'...

I'm kindof trying to keep paradigm out of this, I contacted them about some parts, and they're pretty closed doors. I really don't want them to get involved and pressure my party into buying something from them, which I feel is what I've recieved so far with communications with them. They are also u...

I almost forgot, if your sim is near a major airport, shoot me an e-mail at evan@aero.und.edu. A lot of the guys making the calls on this project travel a lot. A 1 hour tour of the sim could mean a lot. Thanks Everyone,

Ok first off, cut it off you two! IF... I repeat, IF there is a viewing needed, the school of sorts will take care of us, probably a group of 5 or so. So no freebies are needed, and it'd be most appreciated. If some of you have seen my posts, I'm trying to build either a boeing series, or a CRJ FAA ...

Calling All Builders

To any and all builders, I'm currently working with a team to produce an FTD that will eventually get certified. Those in charge would be interested in visiting a location with FDS panels and running Project Magenta Software. The build and team are located in Grand Forks, ND. If anyone is withing a ...

To tell you the truth, I don't know of any off the wall software products for GPS navigation. However, here's the jist of how it would work. It would have to do GPS postion calculations on it's own and refer to a navigational database. Data would be taken from FSUIPC to the program for your vectors....

I'm building a proposal for a CRJ Sim to use as a secondary FTD for a 141 school. The only thing really stopping me from the proposal process is finding the human interface, the yokes, throttles etc. I'm always finding problems finding CRJ yokes and other aircraft parts. However, as part of the prop...

What is everyone using for their external view display? Who's using projectors, and what kind of reflective surface?

Everyone here should think about making a crossfire PC when they update the northbridge of the motherboard (think Feburary). When that happens you can use 4 monitors with the same computer, all synced, and a lot of graphics processing power. Right now the system needs a dongle, so you can only use 3...

That's really the catch, there's not a big market, so people are dealing with whatever yokes they can get. For the majority of us, that's not good enough. Especially considering that you've spent thousands of dollars, just to use a CH yoke with bad trim. I've got another question, like I always do.....
