And you are showcasing which Flight1 product(s) with the video? Seeing as this is the Flight1 forums and Flight1 bandwidth.

I have to say that once you are on the ground, its really hard to tell if its real or a sim. Well done.

Most of my addons are from F1 and/or purchased from F1.
Active Sky, EzDoc, Gex/Utx (under this Orbx airport), and of course all the hardware install advice and FSX tweaks by F1's Nick Needham, etc...
So what you are seeing is in essence a culmination of years of mostly Flight 1 addons and info found right here on these forums!

Yep..   said it a long time ago; the best way to view FSX is on projectors..   I see you took my advice and did the nasty just not on the cheap..   works, don't it?? Tongue 
 
 
Of course you put the big bucks into the cockpit controls.. you can go cheaper
 
 
Bottom Line: The illusion is far more realistic due to the natural projection bluring with illumination as well as the visual scale

And to think i said no way to projection last year. I thought my TH2go with 3 screens was "boss", until Nick said projection was way more immersive. Man were you right!!!
Two CFI's at Toronto Brampton Airport have been in my Simpit and tell me that the 3 sims over there
"dont hold a candle to your sim" And I only charge half their cost at $35/hr-LOL!!
Once again...Thanks Nick!

How much will a setup like yours with the projection and everything approximately cost ? just want to have an idea ....

Are there any scenery/landclass out there you would recommend to add with UT and GEX ? for the GTA at least and/or Ontario,  There are a bunch here that I am aware of but never downloaded any!

http://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx/canada.html
http://flightontario.com/index.html
http://www.simaddons.com/pages/simaddons_addons.htm

I don't know why there aren't much interest for Canada on the market for FSX...

Thanks for your time ....

Hard to say. This has been an evolution over many years. But if i had to replace everything today, probably well over $10,000! Then labor and time to build the actual structure.
No Toronto payware out there at all. I built Toronto from Instant Scenery and it's pretty good!

I may have some vids of Toronto on my YouTube -search under "KennyKanada".
I will try and record a flight over the GTA (greater Toronto area) and get those sites for you
as soon as I get some time...

Thanks Ken I'll look for it on youtube. It would definitely make flying locally much more realistic with the improvements you have mentioned. If the files get posted at some point it would be great to see a screen of the scenery order to make it work. (I am running UTX, Flight Ontario Farmland and Landclass & am looking at adding Scenerytech + FS Genesis) 

Thanks again!

Well it's been awhile! I'm still using my projection and with newer and much improved scenery, it's unbelievably immersive!!
Here is a video flying over The Burlington Skyway from Hamilton to Toronto that I promised LonnyEnds.
Used Instant Scenery II because no developer has yet to do the 4th largest city in North America!
Check out ALL my sim vids on YouTube at "Kennykanada"!

no problem..   nothing better than a good projection system..   besides the fact you don't run a huge resolution which opens the pipe for better/smoother performance, the visual scale and natural blur makes the immersion far more realistic.
