    Loads of good videos on YouTube of how to do it on a budget, plenty of different/cheaper ways, will be building one myself in the garage for the winter, the launch monitor will be the most expensive part. Skytrak the best actual launch monitor at an affordable price (around 2.4k). You can make a net/cage fairly cheap and get a decent projector for Maybe 600.

    Just make sure you have the height. Had plans for such a set up at some stage(when i win the lotto) upstairs in my garage but the feckn ceiling height is very low.

    And check what distance is required between you, the net and whatever machine you are using.
    Trackman needs a fair bit both sides for example

    I have a Skytrak Simulator in my shed, started the build in Dec last year & love it!

    Very easy to do but you need to plan it first, The space you have, screen or net, etc theres a few things to consider but some great groups on facebook which helped a lot

    Some info on this would be great. I'm hoping to do this over the winter. Where is the best place to source the sky track unit? They are pretty pricey at the minute.

    They are pricey at the minute but once they stocks back prices will come back to normal, you could get in Feb on ebay for £1100 on ebay then it all went mad, I bought a reconditioned unit from Skytrak directly with a discount, I'll do up a post in a few days with all details for my set up and i'll post the link here
