Scenery software in my library includes:

I’ve done some enhancements using Instant scenery 2 and FSDS 3.5
My first joystick was a very simple and cheap device.
I bought a CH Flightstick Pro in the 1990s, and incorporated the old stick into a set of home made rudder pedals - (no toe brakes).
Around 2008, I bought a used CH Yoke with 12 buttons, POV and 3 levers; this came with CH rudder pedals and the highly desired toe brakes. As of 2017, this continues to be my control system.
Main screen is a flat 60cm acer LED. I also have a flat 50cm acer, which acts as view from pilot’s side window.
