Hey,


I just moved and have no desk or anything to fly in. I was wondering if some people could show me a good set up. Back home I used an old car seat and a end table. with two boxes on either side for throttle and stick(pretty crude i know) it worked well. I am now far away from home and need to make a good set up . I would like some thing a little nicer or fancier , but not too $$$$$. I do surf the web on the computer but bacically it is only used for flight. I did see some nice wooden F16 setups but i can't seem to find them again. Help with suggestions please. Oh, and if any one has some blueprints or anything to share that would help to.

Thank you

Akers-Barnes advocate here as well. They don't require any glue, screws or nails...they are easily modified, easily stored for transport and cheap to make (even when you use the good sandply plywood).

Many people make custom cushions etc, for theirs. I just got one of those "Ratchet" gaming chairs on sale for about $40 and it fits like a charm. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

This is pretty spendy, but if you have the bucks and no woodworking skills ...
