My 737NGX800 Homebuilt Cockpit
....NEWS:..64 Bit Sims Have Arrived ..Will be Moving to P3DV4 Soon......... Safe Flights Captains
As the News line states, I am planning to make the move to P3DV4 sometime in the next six months with WideView and Widetraffic in mind. Research to do first. From what I've learned so far only one license needed for Wideview, clients are free. There is no news yet of a 64 bit version of Widetraffic.
I've contacted Mathias of Aerosoft products and he stated thier products can be installed on as many machines as needed, providing they are your OWN machines.
With P3DV4 it's not so easy. From what I understand, one must purchase the Professional Plus License in order to use free clients through a MultiChannel network. This is a $2300.00 USD fee or $19.00 USD per month subscription. That's beyond my budget I'm afraid so will have to find another solution for multiple views.
ViewGroups perhaps? Or multiple views from one PC using Wideview and several Professional licenses ..at $200.00 USD per license ? Please drop me an email if you've found a good solution.
What this is ...
I've decided to build mostly with wood and make as many items myself as possible with budget in mind. I've semi-finished my throttle quadrant for the 737NGX800 (non motorized), pictures and documentation are posted on the Throttle Tab. Like most cockpit builders I have many projects on the go and finished but a few so far. The idea is to get a working cockpit and refine the build as I move forward. I have a list of supplier Links and websites who I've had success ordering my supplies from and who have been very helpful, so be sure to check out the Links Tab. My son says everyone is going widescreen now, so to follow suit I've widened my webpages accordingly. Hopefully there there will be no major issues.
Why this site
- To present the documentation of my build, to give back and to share as much as possible with the cockpit building community.
Hopefully to help others in building with economics in mind
- To learn html and css (Thank you Jay for cleaning up my bad code and smoothing over the rough edges)
- FireFox doesn't seem to support the 'Top of Page' scripts as found on the throttle page. This site done in Chrome Browser. (FireFox Users can use 'back page' button if necessary)All Users - Use the back page arrow when viewing pictures except for those noted in the notam. (NOTAM!) Back arrow not required when viewing links or pictures under the Links, MIP, Throttle, Overhead, Pedestal or Yoke Tabs.
- Site Updated Oct 27/2017. This update added some pictures to MIP Tab. Added Nick's Page (Elephant Air) to the Links Tab. Soon I will be adding a new Tab for my YouTube Channel and will combine the Radio Tab with the Pedestal Tab.
