Only cool brands are copied....Part 2

A few years ago we made a funny discovery with a company copying all of our products.

See here: Blog

Last week we found out that it happened again:

Wow. They even copied my personal story :-)

We kindly asked them to remove our products but they did not comply. So just to let you know: These guys are neither VIER IM POTT nor they are authorized reseller. If you order from them - you may get something else or nothing.

How to clean a simulator

Hi all, 

Some customers have asked us for tricks on how to defeat the dust in a simulator without having to disassemble everything or damage the panels. So here's the way we do it.

First, we need to locate the vacuum cleaner in the house. With a furniture brush with very soft bristles (such as horsehair), the dust can be removed even from the smallest corners and the Sim looks like new again. In addition, this procedure does not take long and you can fly back quickly.

Kids day at VIER IM POTT

Question: "Can up to ten kids get an A320 from cold and dark into the air and keep it there with no preparation and only with verbal help?"

Answer: "Yes, they can!" We had several dual input issues ;-) And passengers (parents) were scared to death, but they kept the airplane up and the flight was only finished after some severe engine fires...

Congrats boys! Well done!

Modular Shell Frame System

We often receive message from customers who are interested in an A320 flight simulator but are also faced with room size restrictions.

For those customers we invented our modular shell frame system which allows different holds for overheads and professional or home made shell liner components.

Today we feel we should explain the principle of this system a bit. Enjoy the video...

Showroom Bottrop (20) - Fancy stuff

During our planning phase we decided for a little fancy fun thing. This annunciator lights green when the sim is powered. The other field is red an should be connected with the door look switch to avoid any distorbance during take-off and approach (not sure if my wife and kids will comply with these signs, but at least I can show them the flight status. And that's all about... :-)

Axis calibration

We made ourselves comfortable and will now start with the software installation. We have run through the installation process of Prepar3D (v3), Skalarki Profiler (Version 5), ProSimA320 (Version 1.03 latest beta) and FSUIPC4. One note if you have missed that: you will need a paid version of FSUIPC4 to run ProSimA320.

 

First we start with setup of the Skalarki Profiler. This is rather easy as the profiler software is delivered already with the correct matching of hardware button with the Prosim software.

If you have successfully installed Skalarki drivers (see last article) you will find the profiler like this. One hint: Profiler software starts minimzed. So search for it in the desktop tray.

We stop the SDK Mode. P & P Hardware shows YES for all components we have (hey - for sure we need the refuel panel some day.... :-)

Showroom Bottrop (12) - Carpet and shell frame

Next step: Cockpit floor.

Important hint: Do not buy the cheapest carpet you can. Simply image how many hours it will take to replace it ;-)

Placing the carpet seems to be rather easy from a customers point of view. Even cutting the carpet's edges was not really difficult.

 

We are happy with the result. :-)

Showroom Bottrop (10) - Prepare warping

After adjusting projectors we can start with configuration of the visual. (Apologize screens in German language).

We know that there are probably much better tutorials out there but we decided to publish our way. Maybe it's helpful for some of you.

Important: As we learnd you should use separate screens. In our case screen 2, 3 and 1. Display 4 is our maintenance computer. Do not use nVidia surround in combination with P3D.

 

We will user Fly-Elise Immersive Calibration PRO to prepare warping and edge blending.

Showroom Bottrop (7) - Technical ideas

Wiring of power supply has been done. Projectors, sim, computers and network environment can now be switched on and off via the central 19" computer rack. This is more a matter of convenience than a technical issue. Due to the narrowness of the room and the projection area we don't want to crawl just to switch on some power.

 

Projectors are wired.
