Now that I am semi-retired and CO Home Command (wife) thinks that i have too much time on my hands, I have finally decided that now is time to build a sim pit. Monitor mounts are not really an issue as I will be using it exclusively with VR.
For what I was looking at spending on materials (metal rather than wood - I’m a better welder than carpenter) I came across these GT Omega set-ups that only cost a fraction more:
I will have enough clearance that the front will fit far enough under my current desk so I will be able to keep the monitor where it is and reach keyboard and mouse if I remove the steering wheel shelf (and still have a full range of motion for the joystick with a small extension).
Has anyone any experience with the GT Omega products? i.e. are they value for money or should I just build my own?
Hi just joined the forums and found this. I have the art cockpit and most of the mounts. The gear is well built and worth the price (I live in the UK) . I have done a couple of Mods to the rig using 3/4 " ply and am continuing trying to get the rig just right for me, the first thing was to raise the seat about 8" as I couldn’t get used to being so low and near the floor.
I am a user of DCS, Falcon BMS(new favourite sim), Xplane and MSFS. My current favourite a/c is F16 and trying to set the rig up to suit that. I am happy to send some pics if you want. I also have a 3D printer and trying my hand at creating panels. You say that you can weld so maybe you would be able to making your own or some cool mods. Anyway get back to me if you want more info,
