Hello !
« on: April 27, 2022, 11:45:20 AM »
Hi  everyone!

Although I'm registered since 2016, this is my first post. I would try to build my cockpit now that I've more time in the pocket. So I will start  reading on this forum and asking for advice. I already have a lot of documents, but really I don't know where to start... maybe the Aces II seat??

Best

Hi mate! Nice to see another fellow soul here.

The seat is a good start, I believe. Then wrapping a cockpit around it.
This forum is a gold mine of knowledge and people are amazing, you're going to love it.

Good luck!
Sometime, when I have a bad day at work, I'd close all the windows on my PC and gaze on the wallpaper with the Viper going on full AB thru the sky.

Well, starting to build something is always good. You see that something is built /created, and also important, the joy of the feeling that you built it  :thumbsup:

You will learn a few new skillz, so that is not bad either  ;D

But do not make the mistake that I made ... only building. Do start flying at the same time  ::)

But most of all, welcome, and enjoy the (long) journey you're embarking on  :bounce2:

Henkie is correct.
Fly at the same time as building. Lots of things to learn in doing both.
Takeoffs are optional...landings are mandatory

Yes, this is my initial  intention flying and building the cockpit. For a start I ordered a printed copy of the Viper pit to hang in my sim room, just to remember what is left !!

I recommend taking a look at Martin's new LAN boards to handle the simpit electronics.
