Lately I have been looking into ways to heighten my Infinite Flight experience by purchasing various addons to my ideal set up.
Last year I did attempt to hookup my Raspberry Pi with Infinite Flight however its disappointing support for Android burnt that idea.
So this year I went ahead and purchased the logitek flight yoke and quadrant it worked well on my android device however it was slightly ridiculous having such a huge setup only to be looking into a tiny screen - so I did what anyone would do and try a connection to chromecast (screen mirror feature for androids) that was connected to my projector ( hoping it would work) unfortunately it didnt work as well as I had expected - it was streaming over wifi and I was also using the wifi for Infinite Flight so it lagged a lot and had a lot of framerate drops.
Not to mention the battery consumption at this point because my yoke system was connected via OTG and therefore I could not charge my device at the same time.
The other day, I came over an ad for a product that replicated the Samsung Dex feature at a third of the price and it was available on Amazon so I had it sent overnight and well… what can I say? I am pretty impressed.
The quality of Infinite Flight on the big screen really brings out the hard work and detail put into this flight simulator, so far I have been doing touch and goes with some GA and I did one short haul flight in the CRJ200.
The Samsung Dex feature really has a lot to offer with Infinite Flight and I recommend anybody that has the ability to use Samsung Dex to fly with the simulator.
If anybody is looking into building a low cost flight simulator small enough to be in their room this is probably the most cost effective way of doing so.
Picture attached of my current setup - I will be adding more things as I come across them - I am looking into a way to push my Dex to connect to my projector to take IF to an even higher level.
I apologize for the poor picture quality, I was not able to use my phone, so I had to use… shudder an iPhone…
