Since Photobucket screwed everything up for pics, I am going to try to post some of my pics here.

This is the stand that I designed for my 40" screens. I have now upgraded to 50" screens, but the stand design is still the same. I just extended it out some.

Here are the 40" screens.



Here are the 50" screens. I think this is when I first mounted the screens. They were not quite straight.

I've always wondered if you would be better to have the screens turned vertical so that you can see higher rather than wider?  It would certainly be more suitable for BFM if you wanted to get rid of head tracking.  Or at least limit it.

I've seen a trainer setup where the center screen was bigger than the two side ones, making it slightly taller - and that was a bit of a benefit.  When it comes to screens every additional square foot helps... :whistle: .

I would if you had enough screens. You would need at least 2 more screens to cover you view from the side. What makes a big difference when flying is your peripheral vision. Projector set ups are preferred, but they are not great in bright light.
