|YOU Can Build a Flight Simulator
Cockpit for Your Home
You do not need expensive tools
Build a homemade flight simulator. DIY Flight Sims can help. You can build the
projects with simple hand tools such as a box knife, measuring tape,
screwdriver, small paint roller and brush, PVC pipe cutter, caulk gun, miter box
saw, etc. The only power tools you need for the most part are a drill and a
cordless screwdriver (if you prefer that instead of the regular screwdriver).
You do not have to spend a lot on building materials
Buy the supplies from your local home improvement store like Lowe's or
Home Depot. You can build these projects with styrofoam insulation, regular
construction glue, wood boards and other common materials.
Build the cockpit frames from PVC pipe and connectors. PVC pipe is
inexpensive, lightweight, easy to cut and readily available.
You might already have some of this stuff
By the time you're ready to build a home flight simulator, you probably already
have flight sim software loaded on your computer and you might have some
flight controls like a yoke, rudder pedals and a throttle quadrant. If you need
flight sim gear, check out our Online Store. Most DIY Flight Sim builders tend
to modify the projects to fit whatever components and resources they have
available. You can see some examples of this in the Customer Gallery.
