I also use the iPad 4 as my “mobile” IF device.

Yeah, I’m an IF geek.

Dude, run that setup with P3D or the like. You won’t look back, it will feel amazing.

I built it with PC use in mind, but since I don’t have a good gaming PC (yet), I bought the MOJO instead.

The Bodnar controller interface takes all the flight controls and output it on a single USB cable to the MOJO. If I want to go PC I just plug it into that instead.

I had to modify the yoke and quadrant pretty heavily (micro switches galore) and I installed toe brakes on the pedals to be compatible with IF.

Way geeky but It is fun!

@hetek that’s awesome. I just want to know how to get my android to either a pc monitor or a TV like you. Everything else would be a bonus but the larger screen at this point is almost a must.

How did you modify the yoke to make it look like a perfect Boeing (737?) yoke?

Haven’t got photos to upload ATM,
But I use my phone to stream Weather conditions to my TV, and use my iPad to fly.

Before I got the MOJO, I used to “mirror” my iPad to my Apple TV. Not sure how to do it with an Android other than a MOJO (the MOJO has HDMI output) but others have and I think they use a connection to their Macs to do it.

The “Boeing” yoke I made from birch plywood, PVC, epoxy, buttons and switches and some gloss black Krylon. The clipboard is a piece of 1/8" plywood with a MS Word doc laminated to it. Came out nice but I wish I made the switches functional. They’re not connected.

The one I’m working on now WILL have functional switches. Might even be a genuine Boeing yoke! :)
