So........Visuals?
« on: March 01, 2019, 09:18:42 PM »
Looking at the possibility of doing something smaller that a 737, possibly a G1000 based sim

But looking at maybe a 2 projector system.

Where is everyone getting their wrap around screens at?  Not sure I have the desire to DIY one.

I saw these https://www.simpit.co.nz/ in new zealand, shipping isn't too bad. but has anyone seen something like this in North America?

Also what's the latest affordable short throw?

Guess I'll tell you how it is, picked one up at a discount.

So are the Optoma GT1080 Darbee PJs the ones to get?

John,
I went ahead and bought three of the darbees and I'm very happy with them.

Thanks Warren. 

They seem to have a decent review and certainly a better price point that the Acer 650s

Well, ended up getting a pair of BenQ HT2150ST projectors for $1100 total from BenQ direct, so we will see how the slightly longer throw ratio works.  I have no shell to worry about, just my bald head :)
