    Wow! I think “very seriously” is an understatement.

    It’s sad that the screen is so small. After all that effort, he should be projecting onto the inside of a dome.

      My thoughts exactly. Awesome build though!

    Just watch him when he has to eject, though!

    If you build a flight simulator to that extent, why not go the extra mile and build the whole f-16?
