Congratulations!   It's always great to realize success in getting things to work.  You might try using a window tinting film, that is about 30% gray, to reduce the glare on the display, which will also result in improved contrast.

If not having a custom pcb, the wiring is going to be a mess.

This is just total crap! But i will just install it, put the lid on and forget about it...

After like 7 years of building i finally made the jump on a 70" tv that will go in the front!

This will be a big jump from a 23" monitor on the side! Hahahahaha

Linups becomes takeoff clearances...

My 70" TV is going upp the wall!!!

Hahahaha!!!!

It was EXACTLY my thought!

Yeah , i was satisfied with my tv. But i also was able to realise just how badass it would be with two more!!!

When sidewalls and a solution for my ipeco chairs is done. I am getting two more! :)

Cruising with me Boeing!

Have anyone of you noticed a segnificant FPS drop on ZHSI when using all displays?

Just CPT side and it is smooth as a kitten but if i add ECAS then half the framerates. X-Plane is not affected at all by this.


kurt-olsson

Have gotten alot of things completed lately!

My TQ is almost done 100% except the Trim and trim wheels.

Good to be back with soldering db connectors! :)
