Home made F-16 Flight Simulator. It's amazing what a determined guy can accomplish on his own. Lots of pictures. He's been working on it for 10 years.

The dude should enlist in the airforce, or someone should whisper "fembot" into his ear.

It's good to have a hobby.

Holy cray-up. Wouldn't it be easier to get a flying license?

That's not an F-16. He took a fiberglass replica of the F-16 cockpit shell and added all sorts of panel to make a generic flight simulator. The picture on his Overview page is closer to an F-16 cockpit than what he developed, which is still an impressive piece of work.

Wow! All that work just to play a video game.

I think my comment was too harsh. This is jawdropping work, a kid's dream come true. But still, if they had spent the same work on getting a license, they could probably be flying now...

That's what I was going to say. Easier and cheaper?
