Mark-1 General Purpose Simulator Cockpit
This site contains both a brief history as well as some technical tips
that may be useful to others building aircraft simulator cockpits. My
cockpit is not specific to one simulator or aircraft, working with FS2004,
Falcon 4, and Lockon Modern Air Combat. It has already has had its
first major overhaul, tidying up the cable plant and bringing the electronics
into two areas of the pit. As part of the overhaul the code has been
modified to support Lomac, which now supports data exporting via LUA.
Components of the pit.
The frame is made up of welded Light-weight aluminum square tubing, and
an adjustable car seat.
