Hello Club members,
The committee wishes to approach the wider membership with an offer for an individual/s to bid for the club PC flight simulator.
The sim was built in 2017/2018 to a high standard, at what is termed in the gaming industry as “study level”. It has been built using a mixture of recycled pallet timber, automotive components, general hardware and 12v electrical items, and IT components. It took many months of weekends to complete.
It sits within an immersive cockpit with surround screens and sound. It has realistic cockpit layout with attention paid to a Cessna 172S likeliness. The current software attached is the latest copy of Xplane 11, with the reality expansion C172.
The pictures attached to this document tell most of the story and those with some knowledge will recognise the key features. The price when the sim was completed was approximately $7800.
The club committee acknowledges that the disposal of this asset is due to the sim not fitting the future location or facilities after the club move (no later than 30th Jan 2021), this is why we are wishing to give members first opportunity to lodge an interest.
The reserve for the sim as a whole is set at $ 2500
It may be possible with consultation to break up the sim into smaller individual packages for those wanting only certain items or assemblies. Further inspections are welcome . And older but 90% accurate video showing the sim (panel is now upgraded ) is located here: https://youtu.be/ilXdMJ-3ibo
Please see parts list below (list does not include various items such as main forward screen, seats, hardware, yoke/throttle/pedals etc.) This list is just what in the “box”.
