Some really nice weathering there!
I have this plan to do a 1920s-1930s representation of the railway activity and industry in my province, but I`ll likely never get the money or space to get it done.
WAY too many hobbies and nowhere near enough time or money.

Didn't realize someone was admiring my train set, thanks for the compliments. Hope yours goes smoothly :S!:

Haven't visited this thread in a while, Jorri nice choice of sports car but why Grover? :lol:

Chill, very cool :S!:

Trupobaw,
The hardcover rudder stop is a classic. Not as bad as the giant toddler legos I was using before building this: Center mounted stick and rudder pedal unit

I must say your post was inspirational. I had to relocate my cockpit anyway, as the place it was in underwent a non-hostile takeover :S!: .

Below is my work in progress (aren't they all work in progress?) new pit after relocation, with dudeWG-style pedals unit. It's not as steady as I expected, and I may yet remake it in wood for extra stability an to match rest of the setup aesthetically.

:) Trupobaw, congrats on the new recruit!!! :S!:

That may be the most acceptable reason for relocation of your awesome WWI cockpit/shrine, … and your next REAL "work in progress"!!! :lol:

I am surprised someone tried out my "design" already. Sorry it's not quite what you you were hoping for. Looks like you may have used (the more common and available) 1" PVC. I know that's the size the website I referenced uses, but I went with 1 1/2" for extra stability because of the center mount. Plus, your stick looks really high off the floor! That can't help with stability. Please tell me you went with schedule 40 PVC. It's stronger than the cheap stuff, and not much more expensive anyway. Also, my setup was a little "twisty" before screwing it together. I can't tell if you've gone that far yet, but it will help if you haven't glued or screwed it all together yet. I'd love to see how you fastened the joystick base to the center post and if you found a better (or easier) way to get that right.

Anyway, it's great to see your work in progress. Keep us posted on your updates!

I'd love to see how you fastened the joystick base to the center post and if you found a better (or easier) way to get that right.

Yes, I've used the 1" PCV - it was most rigid kind available, it looked solid enough and I had to rearrange the existing furniture, give up my flying desk, put together a bed, baby bed and new bookcases *and* defend my PhD, all in span of two weeks :x, then the baby delivered two weeks early - so I needed new stick base now and couldn't be choosy.

The height (and stability problems) are due to the fact I normally sit at tall gym ball, for orthopedic reasons; the stick base is slightly above my knees and I'm using my legs (and pedals) to help me balance on the ball, rocking the unit. I'm still experimenting with stick positions and length of last support pipe. I've tried to partially glue the unit to make it less twisty (screwing required tools I didn't have or sortie to tool shop I had no time for), then to glue the parts together; it worked, but it's still rocky when I move the stick. Weighting it down, or even nailing it to solid base, might help to stop it from moving and rocking, but I became proficient enough in these two weeks to try remaking it in wood when I find the time.

The part I'm pleased of is the screen / keyboard unit, which was bought as cheap (~$25) Ikea bookcase and assembled to desired height and shape using only piecs found in set and extra nails. With little forethinking it could be assembled to fit a subwoofer, or a maybe strong fan or PC itself, below the keyboard stand - one day, maybe…

(My assembly below)

Anyway, it's great to see your work in progress. Keep us posted on your updates!

Gladly!

Trupobaw,

S!

Not yet, I'd hate to start flying online only to have to abandon it. I'd need few guaranteed peaceful months ahead to start and explore it properly and that never happened in my year and half of simming; I was always overworked or standing by expecting more work any day now (for ten idle months!).

Here's my new pit with wooden version of thedudeWG's stick and pedals unit. Finally got the pit set up with new stick, just in time because in five days I'm starting move to new house :cry: .

The Microsoft Spade Grip may or may not stay as part of pit, it's in experimental stage.

Finally I shall join this parade ;)
Just took a shot from my Desk. The Hotas is attached to a Plywoodpanel, which is easy to remove in the case I don´t use the stik. Hope to get a Warthog Stik sometime… we will see.
The Pedals are attached upon a massive Panel.
Left side of the Desk I use a small metal hook to maintain a frictionfree bearing of the Track Clip cable.
So far it´s not really a homepit, but it serves its purpose.

Added some MFD's, extended the Warthog and moved my throttle back. Cleaned up the wiring too. Also made a nook for the Saitek throttle quadrant. Not pretty but it's far more ergonomic than what I used to have

is it possible that you could provide some additional angles of this setup, I actually want to try to copy it so any measurements and images you could provide would be great.

It is exactly the kind of setup I would love to try myself.

Awesome rudder pedals there mate, gotta look at building my own also, I'm non plused with the Saitek combat pedals.

Well here is my setup, note the dust and unvacuumed mat, needless to say the missus no longer ventures into this room since the stylish furnature was installed…lol.

Also note the total lack of cable management, something that I'm very good at;)

:S!: Hi Pointy, used the electronics from my ch pro pedals and made the new pedals 500mm wide. They feel and act like the real thing will never buy again Recommend that you make your own. all you need is a drill some square tubing and couple of bolts :D

Tanks Proccy, will look into it further, the Saitek combats action is abysmal, tho not inaccurate, it's just cheap plastic with a scratchy feel….couldn't believe how average the build was VS price. Might investigate using their electronics for a home job.
Toe brakes may be tricky……

Yeah no worries.

The frame is an Obutto Revoloution with Warthog mounts, the mouse things are preset remotes for the Benq XL2720T monitors, I have to say i'm pretty stoked with the 120Hz using Track IR.

Was looking at getting rid of the Saitek Combats (not impressed)and building another set of pedals tho maybe a Slawdevice or Crosswinds seem to be on the cards (have bugger all time paying for all this crap…catch 22…lol)


I included a photo of the mount for the clubsport shifter if anyone is interested in Sim Racing setups.
