On ebay I stumbled across a sim machine (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Flight-Simulator_W0QQitemZ190065255326QQihZ009QQcategoryZ 26428QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)being sold by Chatahoochee Technical College.Apparently,all they care about is getting their money,because they waste no words on payment instructions;but,there's ZERO tech info.

Oh well,thought I'd post it anyway,and if you're not within comfortable driving distance of Georgia,USA,it won't apply to you.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">


Lyrics from Naked Raygun's "Rat Patrol".
"What we need to take control,we could use the Rat Patrol.What's that coming over the dune?...
Chasing the halftracks across the sandflats,got a nice pine box,for that desert fox,machine guns blaring,and Arabs staring wondering why,the Westerners are there.It's the same old story,and it'll happen again."

In fact looks like a common set of peripherals attached to a -rather old- PC with -probably- MSFS. The only extra thing is the motion chair, but, for that price, you can buy a new one.

Besides, it is sold "as is". But you don't know *how* it is. Mmmmm, I wouldn't bother.

The base of the stick looks like a VERY old CH product. (mid to late 90s) I've only seen pics of them on line so I can't be positive, but that base DEFINATELY looks CHish.

The tower SCREAMS PIII processor, (not that that's any clear indication) and the Creative PC DVD isn't writable.

The wierd thing to me is WHY dangle the whole computer by those red straps?

The framing and the seat look top notch..... but not for that price. (at least to me)
