    I love that kind of aluminium profiles, so many ways to build a simulator frame!

    Looks excellent!

    @cthiggin you´ll get them cheap at the bay ;)

    Thanks for your comments, I made several designs to achieve this, it is a system that allows you to set everything up a cockpit, also do custom modifications.
    developing have more news, I'll show you that when you have finished, I'm also designing a motion system, to match the cockpit.
    a greeting.

    Raceray,
    I looked on eBay here in US. Didn't come back with any results. I must be putting in the wrong search information. What should I search for?
    Also, do you think this material would be heavy duty enough for a small platform like the CKAS?
    Thanks so much and have a blessed day.
    Tom

    Excuse me, but do not understand that you want to search on eBay, I do not sell on Ebay.
    This cockpit is mounted on a special holder is 3-axis system will be.
    but I want to have more angle, will be for next year.

    alpefe,
    I'm wanting to fine the aluminum material that was used in the build, not the simulator.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hello again, I bring another modification requested by a client, it comes to folding the cockpit, so you can slide to reduce the length, no tools needed.

    I will also make a sliding tray for the keyboard, anger beneath the steering wheel, height is 4 cm out of the way, I hope you like it.

    I have almost finished good of all the new variation of the cockpit, this time it is foldable, and as in that of the grid there is nothing absolute or definitive, but I put this way also I have another folding system, but I put some pictures and you judge yourself.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    so you see it extended and folded, ranging from 140 cm to 104CM, even though as I discuss can be folded over, what if not all Baquet, would pass between the pillars, if yes would come to touch the pedal, no longer obiamente be folded over, I'm finishing several more things, one is a base for the keyboard sliding under the steering wheel, and other design I'm doing is for another client, who wants to reconcile with flight simulator, when I have finished I will put it, I hope you like it, greetings.

    I have good and supports keyboard under the steering wheel, the maximum width is 472mm keyboard, the height to the bottom bracket is 60mm wheel, does not interfere when folded for driving on the wheel and it got stuck at the wheel legs should not bother your knees, this system comes in handy, especially for those who also utlizan other games (strategy, aviation and action, and those who want to remove the PC board), I hope you like it.
    I'm also involved with a commission to adapt to flight controls and is compatible with self, I'm also collecting data for the F1 cockpit, the only thing this type of cockpit is more exclusive position, limiting use only to F1.

    Hello again, I'm designing a system of supports for aviation controls, such support can be adjusted up to 35cm, also can be moved by the side profile.
    to enter and exit easily be removed lateral support loosening the black plastic knobs, it goes up, I hope you like it.

    another good accessory, Ipad or tablet holder, you can focus as you want, and slide up or down the lane.

    alpefe,
    I'm just trying to find a source here in the US for the parts. Who are you using and do you know if they have an American subsidiary?
    Thanks so much and again, beautiful work.
