Complete G1000 Simulator Build

Posted by Stan Anderson on

If you are starting from scratch and would like to build state of the art flight simulator, nothing can be easier with our G1000 Suite. You might still need some additional components so this article walks you through on how to build a complete G1000 Flight Simulator from scratch.

AVIONICS: We will start from getting everything needed for the avionics

FlightSimBuilder G1000 x 2
FlightSimBuilder Audio Panel
Metal Stand x 2 or FlightVelocity Panel (better)

PC. Next you will need to decide if you want to have a setup with one widescreen monitor or 3 monitor setup. Even though the widescreen options became more available, they have an issue with still not providing enough field of view to use it without something like Track IR.

If you want a the best experience, three monitor setup is your choice. Even though monitor price might not be that different, you will need a much more powerful PC / graphics card to drive 3 monitors. We recommend to go with top of the line RTX 4090 if you want to have simulator at ultra/high settings. is a good supplier of prebuilt PCs. Here are some great options.

1. (Best) Custom built for FlightSim CPU: 7800X3D GPU: RTX 4090 RAM: 64GB SSD: 1TB

If you are planing to mainly use the rig for flight sim, this is the best money can buy at the moment.

2. (Best) Player Three Prime (remember to choose color) CPU: i9-13900KF GPU: RTX 4090 RAM: 64GB SSD: 1TB

Also a beast and can outperform option #1 for video editing but is slightly less efficient than option #1

3. (Very Good) Player Three CPU: i7 13700KF  GPU: RTX 4070Ti RAM: 32GB SSD: 1TB

If you go with one monitor setup, you can also consider Player One and Player Two

MONITOR: If you go with a three monitor setup, any ~27" monitor will do. Typically, not curved option works better.

1. (Best) HP OMEN - 27" IPS LED QHD x3 . 

If you are in the US, you can pick this monitor at $350 per pc from BestBuy.

Honeycomb Alpha & Bravo combo is the best yoke / throttle you can get without going over $1K for each.

Later you can also consider force feedback Yoke like Bruno Yoke

TRACK IR: If you went with one ultra wide monitor, you will need to solve a narrow field of view issue. TrackIR a great option to remediate the issue.

  • I need to know, What CPU is necessary to run 2 G1000 simulators and how they connect externally to each other and to the CPU.

  • I know nothing about flight simulators, and would like to know what a complete setup would cost, and is there support for the simulator.

  • Just set up new G1000 suite p and the blue screen stays lit a blue color even with computer turned off. No signal message on the screen. How do I turn this off so the screen is black like my monitor.
