Has this topic been explored already? If it has... I did searched but I am guessing I used the wrong "tag words" .  eyebrow

Could you clarify what you mean? In terms of hardware used (yoke, joystick, throttles etc?)

Should be an interesting topic.

I'll try and get one up in a bit.

Interesting thread  Smile
This is my cockpit. I've just used a joystick so far but I'm looking to buy a yoke/pedals for my flight sim.

Wow! Very nice! Organized too.  Smile

I'd suggest the X-52/X-52 Pro from Saitek if you'd like to expand to pedals in the future. It's a nice HOTAS system to be able to expand upon.

Thanks a lot, also for the suggestion. When I have the money, I'll surely consider Saitek. There are quite a few producers for flight sim gear, even Logitech jumped in now. I think it definitely enhances the whole experience  Smile

You're correct, on blocks at gate E31 at ATL. Carrier question should be a no-brainer  Smile

You are the captain, eh?  duck 

Interesting how everybody is sitting in the left seat and nobody is using the FO cockpit side... it is a lot better. You can (almost) do the same as the captain, but less responsibility Big grin

I use the FO side! Big grin
It's easier for the PMDG in the 2D panel, so i dont have to have another "Floating" panel piece up when I'm looking at the EICAS

You know we are all 8,000 hour wide body captains that can bring the plane down on just throttle differential alone  Wink

I will post one soon, nothing special for me thought but it gets the job done  Smile

I'd post a picture of my desktop, well desk, cockpit but...I broke it. Not the whole desk, but the keyboard shelf snapped off when I was moving around in my seat. Hoping to get a new desk soon, but not too hopeful.

I'm thinking about moving my laptop desk to be my FS desk, then getting a different desk for my laptop. Oh well. Save save save!

Needless to say, I'm jealous of all of you!

Here is my Virtual office. RFP 747-200 Sitting at the gate in MIA getting ready to go down to Santa Cruz Bolivia CH product yoke and pedals, even have a second yoke a friend gave to me you can see it to the right. Saitek X45 joy stick and throttle I just use the throttle most of the time unless I am flying an Airbus which rarely happens  Wink Desk is a bit of a mess too.

Well- yes   I've been simming from the Captain's perspective for ages, long before I flew with addons where I could change positions, hence I am used to it   However, I already had the pleasure of seating in a B767's F/O seat... marvelous, absolutely.
