Hey Guys and Gals.
I thought you might be interested in my latest project.

I've delved into the realms of 360 video. I bought 6 GoPro hero 4 Blacks (bit ticked off, as the Hero 5 has just been released) and Mick Cliffe, who is a regular contributor an all round great guy, helped me out by manufacturing the 360 spherical array from drawings downloaded from thingiverse.

I've taken a few vids and it's been a learning exercise, but took a small vid last week that I've been working on ever since and just cracked the secret of uploading today.

The software is awesome but the learning curve is vertical, so It takes some time and patience to get the old noggin around it all. Besides that, this stuff isn't cheap with 6 grand investment  in the hardware and another 1200 bucks in the software.

I'll be using it for general purpose stuff, but my main aim is to do full 360 flight sim video's in my cockpit.

And speaking of the cockpit, I've updated my projectors for some GT 1080's and I also purchased a new Gold version CFY throttle, which will supersede my RSP throttle, so no more playing around with SIOC.

So, it's all happening at my place....here's the video:

Hey Frank,

This thing of doing 360 degree camera views is amazingly crazy! With your link, I opened YouTube and it was showing the down looking view of the PED. So, at first, I didn't know you just use your finger on the YouTube player window to move around in the 360 sphere. Once I did that I saw your entire setup...

Then, while watching on my iPad, I just moved my iPad around and that changed the views as well...now that is cool! The iPad movement is the or works like a toggle/joystick controller to look around in the 360 sphere of the video!!!

Keep the videos coming,

John

Hello Everyone,

Just checking in to let everyone know I am still here, just a little distant due to unforeseen circumstances... Please thank Trevor for all the things he does that most don't know about. In short, he is more than just a guy who hosts Cockpit Builders website...he is a great friend that cares about others.

Thank you Trevor!

John

Ps I plan to post some updated pics of the sim hangar, let's just say that it is a complete mess...in other words, I haven't went far since the last postings...lol!

Do not worry too much, I have a Gazebo to rebuild, a kitchen to repaint, a switch from FS9 to P/D, a girlfriend Swap to handle,

Never a dull moment

Conclusion: enjoy life right now!

Yes, I agree you do have it rough Jack, but I am just curious about "a girlfriend swap"? Did you mean FS9 to P3D as the girlfriend(s)...?

Not complaining, not complaining....its a great life and winter is a very good excuse for spending hours with the sim and other toys.... ::)

I'm 11 legs into a USA tour.

Even though the title says Leg 16, it's actually 11...I'm a crappy counter

Thanx Guys.

I'm now about 15 or 16 legs into the US tour and finding more and more problems with add-on software.

It's so annoying when add-on software you are paying 40-50 dollars a scenery for, crap themselves on start-up or don't want to operate properly with the rest.

I guess it's hard to get so many complicated add-ons to work together, but surely they should do their homework and try their products with other well known brands on the market.

I have been very fussy about the sceneries I've bought, only high end manufacturers, but that has been no guarantee of their co-operation with each other.

So, far on this tour, of the 14 legs, I've probably bought at least 10 airports at 40 dollars each, so it hasn't been cheap.

The next problem that has arisen is the diminishing space on my drives.
I bought new 500GB Samsung SSD's a few months ago, as I was running out of room on the Samsung 250GB ssd's I had installed.

So, looks like 1tb ssd's are on the very imminent horizon, on all three IG's.
There's another 1500 bucks as well.

At this rate, it may have been cheaper to actually fly to the states and enjoy the reality of being there....hahaha!

Anyway, my latest leg had to be abandoned today when I couldn't get my main IG Pc to play the game.
It was from KELP El Paso to KDEN Denver Colorado.

I'm videoing most of my flights, so I'll put a few more up here as time goes by.

After the States tour, I'm doing some maintenance and upgrades (Intercoms x3 and seat modifications and audio upgrade), then I'm planning a European tour.

Today's flight.
I keep getting the number of legs mixed up, but this one is definitely Leg 15.

My next leg is from Sky Harbour Phoenix to the new ORBX San Diego, so looking forward to that in the next few days.

With the advent of the release of P3D V4, I am now looking to upgrade my visual PC's.

I'm looking at the i9 series of processors on the 2066 board (probably Asus ROG) and 64Gb of fast ram.
I've got some nice GTX1080's running already, so they will slot nicely in there, too.
As well, I've bought 3 x 2Tb Samsung SSD's to replace my 500Gb Samsung SSD's.

I'm only running 7700K's with GTX 1080's, 32Gb fast RAM and 2Tb Samsung SSD's in my outside two PC's, as they are just slaves and only do a portion of the work anyway.

V4 opens up a whole new cockpit sim world and I want to future-proof the sim now, when things are all fresh and new.

Thanks for all the nicely done videos of your various flight segments.   Well done.  It's always nice to see other Sims take to the air.
