DIY Triple Screen Flight Sim online course
DIY Triple Screen Flight Sim online course

Item #T440, $49 US dollars

This e-learning course teaches you how to build a home flight simulator with three screens and dual switch panels made from computer keyboards. When you build it yourself, you spend a lot less money than you would on a retail multi-display framework like the obutto - type setup. The obutto is great if you have that kind of money, but many of us would rather invest those funds into the computer or flight controls.

The DIY Triple Screen Flight Sim is waiting to carry you away on your next adventure...

  • Three computer monitors immerse you in the action
  • Build materials from a home improvement store and retail flight controls
  • Works with Prepar3D, X-Plane, FSX Steam, DSC World, Flight Sim World, and others
  • Includes DIY Airliner Keyboard Modification online course
  • Build it for your home, school, museum, EAA chapter, etc.
