I said I’d come back, but I didn’t think it would be this soon. Turns out I like writing about flight simulation more than I thought. For the meantime, though, there has to be a change of emphasis for this blog. Which is why, in time-honoured tradition, I’ve re-titled it ‘The Mile High Geek In Exile’, because – for now – I’m exiled from my cockpit-building dream.
Rather than let the time between now and when I can resume construction go to waste, I decided to go back to where I started: Desktop simming. To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with desktop simming. Many enthusiasts never build a panel, attempt to replicate Korry switches out of acrylic cubes and LEDs, or use anything more sophisticated than a joystick. That used to be me, back in the day, before my crazy quest began. What killed desktop simming for me was Flight Simulator X.
