Your childhood dreams of flying a plane have gone kaput years ago. But you say you still entertain the thought of soaring through the skies? The OVO-4 Home Flight Simulator could help. Sure, you will probably have to bid goodbye to the skies and clouds and birds. This simulator allows users to live the glamorous life of an aviation pilot without ever leaving the comfort of their home.
This airplane simulator will let you fly through the skies, or rather, give the impression of doing as much. And if you have always put off going to flight school, this is your chance to get home-schooled in the art of flying. The OVO-4 Home Flight Simulator looks like a pod from the outside. Get in and you will find a full-size cockpit and fake windows crafted from three 24-inch TFT monitors. The cockpit features all the necessary controls. The preloaded Microsoft Flight Simulator X ensures that users can pick up the tricks of the trade without ever leaving home.
The cockpit flight simulator gives users a real experience of what it is like in an actual airplane cockpit. Like a real-life pilot you feel the constant rumble of the engines. You will feel the lurch as the plane takes off. And you will be in for a bit of turbulence (artificial, of course!) during the journey. You can even experience day-night shifts, thanks to the changing lights inside.
The only problem with the OVO-4 is its size. Before you spend a whopping $57,300 on this baby, figure out whether you can fit this 320cm (L) x 220cm (H) x 360cm (W) hunk of metal that weighs 2,200 pounds in your home. The flight simulator is shipped free and comes with a 2-year warranty.
