Talking DCS World Using a projector

I have tossed this idea around for some time, and with the US football Play-offs imminent, decided to investigate further.
The last time I looked, projectors were quite expensive, costing $700.00 and up. This did not include a screen either.

So this week, I looked on Amazon.

The tech has advanced dramatically since I last looked!
I found a DBPower brand that uses LEDS and has 3200 Lumens brightnes. (works good in daylight)

Specs,

1. 5.8-inch LCD screen
2. 1280 x 800 and 1080p resolutions
3. 3,200-lumens brightness
4. 1,500:1 contrast ratio
5. 360 degree flip function
6. 5-piece glass projection lens
7. 1-5m projection distance (optimum distance is 3m)
8. ±15° manual keystone correction
9. 16: 9/4: 3 projection ratio
10. 50 to 200-inch screen display size

For $219.99 Cheaper than a big screen!

Added a screen, $59.00

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and two days later,

I am watching a 80 inch HD TV!

UNBELIEVABLE!

I run my pc at 1080p so the next step is...........LOL
A Longer HDMI cable.............

The projector has two HDMI inputs so Blueray player will share the second input with the HD cable box.
I watched "FlyBoys" in blueray.
This is perfect! The image looks full HD to my aging eyes.

I needed to share, If I had only known sooner...............

Will post some pics today.

The only problem I see with the way you are going is that I would then need to build a full functioning cockpit.

I've tried DCS on my projector, with my main AV system. Still prefer it in VR.
