Awesome work. Looking forward to seeing your video.

Since this is all with the Zibo model, what would be the chance that I could get it working with a 737MAX build?

PC for SimA

In prepping for a Max build I started looking at components for the SimA PC. I have a spare I7-6700, 32GB, 256GB SSD laying around so that should be ok, but I sold the spare video cards I had during the mining craze. Looking through the board I see a lot of talk about GT610s and GT710s. I found GT73...

The Telex 750's are lighweight and can be had on ebay under $50 if you're patient. I grabbed one from the jetcarrers.com message board for $25 shipped

Bring your wallet..... LG Hecto 100in Laser TV Projector – Price and Launch Finally in the niggle department is the fact that the Hecto will cost a cool $10,000 when it launches in the US and Canada in the next few months.

I bought a 737-300 overhead frame to use with the FDS panels (requires a little bit of mod work), and it came with the landing lights switches. In fact it came with all the bottom panel switches.

I had a set I previously bought years ago, but sold them off two months ago.

I would avoid the GT720, the throw is .70 and you would have to almost stack the projectors to get your alignment. I hade them and sold them, I think Nick on CB built with them and they were a pain to setup with outer ones stacked on top of the center one and touching each other. Barely gets the plu...
