    Made my flight stick a lot less bulky and easier on the eyes.

    Obsessive hobbies....

    Designed a 3D printed mount for my flight pedals with height adjustment. It used a lot of M6 bolts, threaded inserts and locknuts. One very cool thing is that my flight pedals now fit under my driving pedals so they can stay on the rig all the time. Also printed 105mm Bar Pedals...

    I was keeping this very simple with a single camera and just showing the operation of the rig. I put that together very quickly. I'm putting together a video that documents the journey of this rig over a couple years. I still need to cover the flight side of this and a lot more details while...

    Just created a mount for my new Collective Stick. This mount easily attaches in the same place as my Virpil flight throttle. I just reverse the side that I bolt from. It feels pretty good where I have it which is very close to where an actual Helicopter collective stick tends to come out of...

    SACD Player Recomendations

    Streaming video is currently a crap shoot and there is quite a bit of compression introduced at least for now. That is one area where until we have dramatically more bandwidth we can expect a degraded streaming experience. So yes physical media for video almost always looks better. In fact my...

    SACD Player Recomendations

    Exactly. If multiple potential sources of errors sending identical data to your CD players DAC sounds better than the identical data going to an external DAC than the external DAC or it's analog output section is the weak link. So yes they can sound different but only because of a shortcoming...

    SACD Player Recomendations

    The idea the physical media sounds better is pretty funny. File(silent, instant access) -> error free with error correction to DAC -> pre-amp -> amp vs. Potentially flawed physical media that can attract dirt, dust, or be scratched -> transport mechanism ( potential noise) -> optical reading...

    SACD Player Recomendations

    There is a lot of music available for download at even higher than 24/96 at least in terms of sample rate, although you would be hard pressed to hear the difference.

    Started on a video to show the operation of my rig.

    SACD Player Recomendations

    I got a copy of JRiver to both organize and rip my music, and yes it's a bit of a chore, but it will run at the maximum speed of your CD player. It doesn't handle SACD's, but I only had two of them. The bottom line is that I finally broke down and did it. I just had my media server sitting...

    SACD Player Recomendations

    I'd assume that players will go the way of the dodo bird, but record players had a resurgence and I've even heard some people swear by cassette tapes. I'm guessing they got used to the artifacts of tape and missed them. But since there is no difference in the bits stored on a disk vs. a hard...

    Obsessive hobbies....

    This is an example of designing something that I won't be using. I'm very happy with my aluminum solution for my retractable casters, but I've had many people complain that they aren't comfortable working with aluminum. So I designed a 3D printed PETG caster bracket. It works well enough...

    Amps & Preamps... Do You Match Brands?

    I'm still loving how my OPPO 105D pre-amp output drives my amp. I guess I'm tone deaf.

    Obsessive hobbies....

    I've had many people ask to pay me to make things for them, and I've almost without exception turned them all down. I'm happy to share my 3D designs on Thingaverse and I usually document my builds. I frequently get comments from people who used my ideas, so I help in that way. I just keep my...

    I've only run DCS in VR first with my Rift and now with my Index. It is a full simulation, but they also have the option to jump into a flying aircraft. For the Huey they will start you with the engine running on the ground and you just spool up the turbines and give it some positive...

    Created some aluminum mounts for more sturdy retractable casters and then created 3D printed covers for them. DCS just announced that they are working on an DCS: AH-64D ( Apache Attack Helicopter ) and that got me a bit excited so I had an impulse buy for a Helicopter collective/throttle...

    Can't leave my 3D printer alone. In Fusion 360 I imported an image "canvas", then drew a spline line around the edges that I tweaked and created a body out of that to become a trackball mouse tray. Melted threaded inserts into a mount for the tray. Used 3/4" velcro coins to hold the mouse to...

    iRacing has a configurable Wiper On and a single wipe. The lights have a configurable On and a Flash of high beams for passing. Dirt Racing has Wipers and Lights as both manual or automatic. Realistically that doesn't really come into play except for endurance races when the weather can...

    I'm beating a dead horse at this point, but here it is in final form if there is such a thing. A small round BMW clock arrives tomorrow, a grab handle in a couple weeks( to help get in and out of rig when it is in flight mode) Right now I have a new right front fascia printing that doesn't...

    Cables (oh no, not THIS topic!)

    Personally I love a combination of adamantium and unicorn hair ;) Sadly I know a guy who has$10K speakers and $25K in interconnects and speaker cable elevated off the floor on ceramic mushrooms. No room treatments at all. He has no bass, but swears everything is so much clearer with those wires.
