My Ergodex is now complete

Postby GoGamer.com - Jason on Mon Dec 19, 2005 12:21 pm

Hi guys,

So with a little bit of paint, both literally and virtually I dressed up my DX1 a bit. It now resides in my cockpit and I love it.

I'm a little biased though since we sell the DX1 in our shop here at GoGamer.com, but as a flight-simmer I highly reccommend this product.

I'm also running a special through SimHQ for $10 off the DX1. Use coupon code "gogetgear".

You can read more about what I did here at SimHQ.com

Also, here's a couple pics.

Enjoy.

Thanks Minds Eye. Glad you like it. Where outside Salem are you? I used to live in Corvallis.

Hi Jason,

I would have to agree with Minds_Eye. Your project is certainly the best custom modification of a DX1 that we have seen! The paint finish on the pad looks great.

Hey Jason, sorry, been awhile since I've checked back. I actually live in Dallas, and work in Salem

I play PF also, but you must be a waaayyy bigger fan then me, the only buttons I use for IL2-PF are all on my Extreme Pro 3D.

Hey, come by and say howdy at PDX LAN, 17-20 FEB 06, www.pdxlan.com, and Rick, I better see you there to boot, I did not see your name in the sponser list.

Dude, I did not even catch till now that you painted the keys, that is waaayyy sexxy dude. What kinda of paint did you use? Arcylic? Oil/water base? How is it (paint) holding up to repeated use?

Hey Mind,

Well, I'd come to the event but I live in SoCal now. I lived in Corvallis when I worked for NaturalPoint. I've been back in CA since August. ;-) Oregon just wasn't for me. I dated a chick who lived in Stayton while I was there.

And yes I painted the keys. I used simple Testors hobby spray paint for the Silver, Red and Yellow and I used some Black "Hard Hat" spray paint from home depot. I then coated all the painted pieces in a clear gloss sparay to lock in the colored paint. Usage so far has not caused and problems due to the clear coat. I guess if I played 8 hours a day it may wear a bit, but for my 6-8 hours a week use its working great.

Jason,

Your setup is AMAZING! I've never seen anything like it. Loved the pics - but do you have more pics of the entire cockpit? I'd be interesting in seeing some pics that were a little more wide angle so I could get a look at the entire thing.

Thanks.
