Phil has been a long time supporter of FDS parts and is always making large strides in progress. The latest update from Phil shows the interior portion of his setup lit up and in very flyable condition. Phil is using a real B737 nose that is INSIDE his house. His visual system is made up of numerous Large LCD Flat Panels. Thank you for the update Phil! PC

Im not much of a Boeing fan as everyone knows a little point I never hide, but I'm one of the first to say it's not because their product is not a great airplane or that its not well built its personal preference. That said, i must say that your project is absolutely fantastic and congratulations on such super work you've done.Great job Phil. Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Phil, great job. I see that you have some sort of large LCD/Plasma screen set-up going on, what are the specs, and how have you config them??

All the Best,

hello,
i used 5 37inch flat tv screens. The front, front left and front right view are attached to a Matrox Parhelia 256mb, the left and right view are attached to a 2nd computer also with the Parhelia, also using wideview.

How is the performance with the Parhelia? I have an old version, but with flightsim 98 it was horrible!

That's because you run the sim in windowed mode. Try to press ALT and ENTER at the same time, and you'll go to full screen.

Another option would be to alter your screen setup to get the borders black.
Right click the desktop and select "preferences". Then choose "appearance" (or whatever it is in english versions - the tap between screen saver and setup).
Select "advanced".
Now click on the border around "active window". The drop-down box should read "active window border" or something similar.

Alter the color to black. Also use black as the desktop color (never use a background picture, as it decreases performance).

Good luck, tell us how it goes! Smile

Thanks Phil, looking forward to another post once you have updated your computer along with the TH2GO.

All the Best,

Hey Phil, that is excellent work, where did you get all the parts? It looks like the panels are from Flight Deck Solutions, but are all the rest of the parts from the nose section? You must be one of those electronically gifted geniuses getting all that stuff to work, nice job! Laughing

I got my overhead linings from www.northernflightsim.com The persons name is Art, and he is capable to get you what you need. He also sells yokes, seatrails He is really a great person.My rudder pedals are also from him, also wired perfect by Jonathan from PM. The windows are also from rt. The yokes are from www.simw.com , i asked them to make them dual linked, thottle is also from simw.com.
The glareshield is also from Art. Jonathan from PM wired it totaly (thanks Jonathan) It has real announciators and working perferfect with PM systems. For the moment Art is als preparing a real throttle and radio bay.
The cockpit itself was a real one from Southwest. It came by boat from the US to Belgium.
