These will be put up on Ebay in about 3 weeks. They are in a place for a truck to load.
Thought I might set these up or even improve on them with newer keyboard mappers when I retired.
But, business is too good so it is time to let go of them.
There were 8 Pods just purchased a very few months ago. He builds single pilot simss with actual avionics. The guy took out the C-20 Glass Mountain convex mirrors and beam-splitters, tossed the rest. Had some interest from groups asking how much to just take out the VR optics and ship them to Australia. It will be a shame to see that happen.
I called Glass Mountain (now Flight Safety International) and talked to the original guy that sold the C-20. After Glass Mountain was acquired they went to the really big optics. They can still build the C-20 on demand for around $5,500 each. Can resurface if needed for around $800. But, they are in perfect shape as it is. Talked about the monitors. the 20" CRT were flat screen (as flat as a CRT could be made back then). The mirrors were designed for flat surface. The demo from the flight sim put a high-res flat screen with great success.
Of the 12, 10 were usually working but robbed for parts while orders arrived to keep 8 going. 12 Alienware original computers. Lots of wear, used, sold as is, without warranty. One had a 20" LED added. It worked, but it was a few years ago so the refresh rate is a little slow and irritating. Of course the newer 20" OLED are not only brighter, but faster. I have a 240 hz refresh large OLED for my 3D activities.
I could put more descriptions but everyone here should know about the pods.
My business plan will most likely continue to send me to NYC and area. Would love to see them available and be able to visit them once in a while!
