mycockpit Product Review TripleHead2Go

"I clicked on the FS9 shortcut that the Matrox software created for me on the desktop, and Flight Simulator Loaded on the left monitor only. So much for a "KAPOW" kind of a reaction. Sitting on the runway at my default airport I couldn't help but press ALT + Enter to switch to full screen mode. BANG, the image shot across all three screens in a spur of the moment beauty.

After looking at many aircraft, especially Virtual cockpits, I couldn't help closing the aircraft panel, so I could have an unobstructed view of the scenery. When thrusting down the runway, with the speed increasing, I had the most spectacular forward view. My eyes were concentrating on and glued to the center monitor. I suddenly became aware of my peripheral vision, picking up the movement on the side monitors, I felt like I was really there.

Lifting off the ground and launching into the air, I felt like I had been missing so much from flying with one monitor. It's like the very first breath of air after being under water for a long time. Its one of those feelings like you never knew what you were missing until you experienced it. I don't think I would want to be without this product again.

Completing my circuit, I gently pulled the throttle back and set her down on the runway like a landing from never before. I couldn't believe how much better I was able to control the aircraft with a wider field of view. Try flying the aircraft with one eye closed, then open both eyes and try it again. That would be the perfect analogy for flying with the Matrox TripleHead2Go."
