    Cool Show off your desktop

    Here's mine.










    I actually got a fantastic deal on the CH Products yoke and pedals. I was at a yard sale and they were sitting there for $25 for both. LOL!!! Said you have a deal! thought perhaps they wouldn't work, but I plugged them in and sure enough they worked! I couldn't believe my luck. I saved a ton of money. The curved screen which is a Samsung something or other I got for Christmas. I don't even remember what size it is now. The other screen is a Dell and I've had that for years. One day I'll buy the same curved screen to replace the Dell. Desktop is to the right. You can barely see it. And under the desk is a brand new 500 watt Cyberpower UPS. Works great. I killed the power to the power strip and my computer, two monitors and speakers stayed on like nothing ever changed. It said had about 15 minutes of run time which is fine. Enough time to safely shut down.

    If I win the lotto, I've seen some full fledged 737 cockpits on eBay I wouldn't mined owning. The last one I saw was going for the low rate of about 55k. Tell you the truth, I'd either build my own or have someone come out and do it all for me.

    BTW- That's not a huge crack pipe on the shelf. It's a boiling flask and next to that is a beaker. I have a few other pieces of glassware there two including a few Erlenmeyer flasks. No, I don't make meth. LMAO I'm a scientific minded person. They're decoration. I have a very large Erlenmeyer flask on my bookshelf for all my change. Geiger counter and thermal imager is in the cabinet. LOL Got an EMF meter too. Didn't find any ghosts in the house.

    Here's mine. All home built to the tune of approx £1500.
    It took a year to build mainly due to my slow programming
    skills ! Lol.The co-pilots G1000 is a dummy as this all runs off
    one PC and I only have 4 graphics card ports to play with and
    also didn't want to push my system to the point of ruining my frame rates.

    Yeah, that was lucky. I was always complaining while flying the PMDG 737 in FS2004 that I couldn't crab the plane for crap with my game pad. I could, but it just wasn't very easy or real. So I wished I had a real yoke and pedals. A few years latter at a yard sale I saw both sitting there. Dude said something to his wife like, "glad those are gone." I was like great they probably don't work. But I plugged them in and configured the button assignments and they worked. No problems at all. I don't know why he was selling them for so cheap. They go for a pretty penny on eBay.

    I have dual monitors, but I'm thinking about going VR. But to tell you the truth I've always wanted a drone (quad copter) and the one I'd like is a DJI Mavic Pro. You can combine virtual reality with the drone as well.

    A little late on the topic but, here's mine. As I am flying only GA planes, mostly in
    the Pacific Coast area(with all Orbx basics & all FTX regions) and using Track IR,
    the little panel is perfect for my needs.
    I'd like to win the lottery and add a motion platform under.. ;-)

    Thanks Stinger but it's nothing compare to your very nice "glass-cockpit" panel.
    Very impressive, really.

    You guys are a mazing! I'm totally ashamed to even think about my little laptop and joystick setup. You guys do give me something to aspire to though. Thanks for the pics.

    No offense to anyone (all fun pics) but I much prefer to just see the everyday setups. Desk, joystick, the environment. CRJ_simpilot's setup is my fav here. The Southwest model, Trump, poster, that he uses a yoke over joystick, prefers two screens, all more of interest to me than full on cockpit setups. Hope some people will post more "typical" pics. You got a laptop Bill, I would love to see where you normally set it up and use FS.
