Airplane gaming cockpit build?


Is there any possible way to make a gaming cockpit that would look a little like the inside of one and function of of a joystick and some soft ware, would there have to be a separate monitor for it, and have rudder pedals that work. Im limited to certain materials but i can buy some. It doesn't have to tilt or anything. dont tell me im stupid just a kid with a dream.

If you search for sim pit or Sim cockpit you will get a load of sites at all sorts of levels. Some tilt some don't.

Rogerdodger.net sell plans for building cockpits. I built mine that way - it was cheap and awesome.

This is what I did:

Google "cockpit simulator" and prepare to be wowed!

You can go as far as you want with this project. 

And if that's stupid then there are lots of us stupid people out here.

You can do much to enhance your sim experiance for very little by making a fairly simple seat & including a rumble speaker in the bottom   

A head tracker helps avoid the need to keep messing with the hat on the stick.

A pair of rudder pedals also adds to realism.
Its sure possible, take a look around for instructables and related websites. This might be a good link to start with
