After a while I was fedup with the rolling office chair
during races. As the RC flyer and modellbuilder I am I started to wounder how
I could build my self a cockpit. The first problem was to find a suitable area
in the house. The best I could find, that was near the computer, was the area
under the stairs. So now it was just to start building.
This is what the stairs look like after I have
transformed it into a simulator.
To be able to get into the cockpit both
monitor and wheel has to be pushed forward
This is what it looks like when the monitor and
wheel is pulled back in race mode.
On the door the Gamevoice controller and a
numeric pad is mounted. The numeric pad is used as a "chatboard".
The pedals are modified for easier toe
The keyboard is mounted above the head.
On the left you can see the fuel strategy, the
gamevoice controller and the "chatboard".
