yes, it is old news but it is by far one of the least requested subjects/websites...

I'm curious to see what their "cheaper" products will be like (even if it is a couple of years away)...

It would be cool if they sold it in a "kit form" where you could pick and choose which components you would like...

How about this one? It's for sale on German ebay:

Why spend 25000 Euros on a second hand FW190 sim cockpit when for that price you can buy a good second hand plane that actualy flies?

That was EXACTLY what I though, looking at that offer.

I'd really LOVE to try a modified Dreamflyer.

What I really HATE about the manufactured one... that the monitor is way down near one's feet. Talk about a postage stamp-sized view.

No, I'd contrive a mounting to get the screen near yer face. With a not-too-heavy monitor it should require just a little fiddling with counterweights.

Now, with the 'Flyer bouncing around a fair bit while fighting, there might be some unintentional head-induced view tracking when using TrackIR.

In a darkened room, or with a lightweight shroud to block out the surroundings, I'd imagine one would get a neat physical feeling with one of these. But especially with a near-to-face screen placement.
