Default VR Cockpit

This is a "catch all" thread to outline the evolution of my VR Cockpit from a simple desktop setup, to a Wheel Stand Pro setup with top tier flight sim controls, to (eventually) a full scale 1:1 cockpit.

Tales of my research, part procurement, and pit building follow...

Nice tidy setup, puts me to shame.

I like that wall though, post a bigger picture of the room!

Took a saw to the center joystick post to shorten it about 2-3" so it rests lower in my lap area, and repositioned the throttle a little bit for a more realistic/ergonomic set up. I'll have to get some updated pics up soon, along with the full room shots for Mr Burns!

The WSP is built like a tank! I was blown away when it arrived to see how heavy it was and then to see how well made it was when I was putting it together. Really pleased with it.

Here is an updated shot showing the new set up since I've sawed off a few inches of the WSP joystick post, so that my Warthog +15cm extension sits in a lower, more realistic and comfortable position when seated.

Since my last photos I've also added a microphone boom arm to help assist with clear voice comms using VAICOM 2.0 and VoiceAttack.

Next steps:
  1. Add my aviation decorations to the walls
  2. I just ordered new pedals from Baur, more specifically the BRD F2 Su-35 style combat pedals (with damper) to replace my Saitek's, so I will need to make some modifications to the WSP foot plate so that I can mount these...but I've got a few months before taking delivery, so more to come on that later!
