Simpit Icarus 180 Avenger

Fancy a flight at home? Are you more into gaming? Enjoy the ultimate experience in our 180° semi-professional panoramic simulators offer!

What is Icarus 180 Avenger?

The Icarus 180 Avenger is our best selling product and revolutionary front projection display that converts two ordinary short throw projectors into extraordinary experience second to none, the SimPit BlackScreen boosts colors, contrast, blacks, and detail and it's designed to work in day light conditions that would be previously absolutely unthinkable for front projected system, the ultimate gaming display - 120" of pure awesome in 2K to 12K.

THE SCREEN

The Screen is the main and most valuable component of the system. It's made from 0.8mm thick polycarbonate - the same material that is commonly used for fighter plane cockpits and racing car windows.
The screen combines superior impact resistance, flexibility, structural strength and it's virtually unbreakable, while its weigh is less than half of the weight of glass. The surface is perfectly even with no wrinkles and it requires absolutely no tension when mounted

Because projectors cannot project black the screen has a special surface layer that filters out ambient light while reflecting the image created by projectors making images very crisp and popping out of the screen. 

 

 

FRAME MATERIALS

All parts from construction board are CNC laser cut for the best precision and best weight vs strength efficiency.

 

Plain Construction Board

This frame is best for budget conscious projects and perfect for home gaming. The plain construction board frame is CNC laser cut from furniture grade construction board, it has a hard surface finish but the surface is not sealed and can be painted. 
 

Black Frame 

The Black frame is CNC laser cut from furniture grade construction board and the surface is laminated from both sides with matte black veneer with excellent scratch resistance
It offers a nice finished look that compliments most gaming setups and better durability. 

Aluminium Frame

The Aluminium frame is built for tough commercial environments such as trade shows, air shows, and training facilities. The frame is from black powder-coated aluminum profiles with black laminated construction board connectors.

WHAT ELSE IS REQUIRED

Projectors

Icarus 180 Avenger requires 2x short throw 1080p projectors for the full 180º field of view. (projectors are not part of the package). the Recommended projectors are Acer Z650 Predator, Acer H6517ST, BenQ 1080ST, BenQ 1085ST+, Optoma GT1080 or projectors with similar specifications.

Warping and Blending Software

Warping and blending software is needed to map the projected images to the screen and blend the 2 pictures to one seamless high-resolution image. SimPit Warp is highly recommended as we provide pre calibrated profiles and image enhancing patterns for the Icarus.

Self Leveling Cross Laser

Very inexpensive tool available from hardware stores or eBay/Amazon that makes life easier when calibrating the image.

Advantages over traditional displays:

  • Realistic 180° panoramic view – look left over the wing and see run way in when on downwind in your traffic pattern!
  • Enjoy a flight simulation experience even if you’re not a licensed pilot.
  • Immersion Extraordinaire!
  • If you’re an Aero Glass user, use our glasses with the simulator for practice & fun!
  • play a large number of 3D games in total immersion.

Great to use with popular flight simulations and games, such as:

  • Lockheed Martin Prepar3d.
  • X-Plane by Laminar Research
  • Digital Combat Simulator series
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X
  • Assetto Corsa car racing simulator.
  • Project Cars car racing simulator.
  • The wonderful space game Elite Dangerous.

Kit includes:

  • SimPit Icarus 180 Avenger aluminum frame.
  • Black Pearl screen SimPit Warp USB key to work the projector images to the cylindrical canvas
  • integrated cylindrical desk to put your controls on
  • Aero Glass marker board to integrate with an Aero Glass system (sold separately)
  • Two short throw HD projectors (BenQ 1085ST+ or Acer Z650)
  • Pre-calibration files: The simulator frame is manufactured so as to ensure the proper positioning of the projectors. The largest part of the calibration of the projectors – which, ultimately, is responsible for the correct displaying of content – is performed by a software provided by us. (Please note, that minor fine-tuning might still be necessary on your part.)
