FlightScope Mevo Plus Limited Edition Space Requirements - How Much Space Do You Need? [Home Golf Simulator Guide - Full Indoor/Outdoor Specs]

How much space do you need for the 2024 Mevo+ Limited Edition in your home golf simulator? Find out from our golf reviewer Marc who has firsthand experience setting it up indoors! 

The standard edition FlightScope Mevo+ was already one of the absolute best indoor golf simulator options on the market. And then FlightScope went and made it even better.

Now, not only can you get the renowned reliable accuracy of a Mevo+, which makes for incredibly realistic simulator golf, but with the new 2024 Limited Edition Mevo Plus, you can get even more data and better pre-loaded simulator golf courses all included for a discounted price.

It’s a sweet deal, but you’ve got to have enough space in your simulator studio to accommodate this golf launch monitor.

Of all the questions we get related to setting up an indoor golf simulator, the most common is, “How much space do I need?” And that’s what we’re covering here.

If you’ve got enough room and you’ve got the budget for the $3,499 FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition, you’re in for an awesome golf simulator experience. Now, let’s make sure you understand what sized room you’ll need.

How Much Indoor Space Do You Need for a FlightScope Mevo Plus Limited Edition Golf Simulator?

Because of the way that the Mevo+ Limited Edition measures golf shots, using what they call a Fusion Tracking system that combines Doppler radar and a camera, the golf launch monitor has to be set up behind the golf ball.

And not just immediately behind the golf ball.

We’re talking 8 feet. And when you consider the space you’ll also need in front of the golf ball, you start to understand that using a FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition indoors requires a fairly large room.

Here are our room-size recommendations to comfortably use a Mevo Plus Limited Edition Indoors:

  • 10 feet wide
  • 21 feet deep
  • 9 feet tall

For the most accurate results, the Mevo Plus Limited Edition should be set up 8 feet behind the golf ball.

And because this golf launch monitor uses radar and tracks from behind, you need a bit of space for the ball to fly so that the Mevo can read it most precisely. We recommend a minimum of 8 feet between the golf ball and your impact screen or hitting net, though 13 feet is preferred. 

Add it up and it means you ideally want 21 feet of room depth but can get away with 16.

As for ceiling height and room width, you just need enough to be able to swing your longest golf club without damaging your surroundings. Our above recommendations are comfortable standards, but you may be able to get away with less space depending on the size of golfer and length of swing that will be using your indoor golf simulator. Then again, a tall golfer with a long swing may require more ceiling height than our 9-foot recommendation.

While room width and height requirements for a FlightScope Mevo Plus Limited Edition are standard, the room depth requirement could be an issue for a lot of people. Which begs the question: Is having a golf launch monitor like the Mevo Plus Limited Edition that requires so much room depth worth it? Or is a photometric golf launch monitor a better indoor golf simulator choice?

Radar vs Camera: Which Type of Launch Monitor Is Best for an Indoor Golf Simulator Studio?

One of the biggest pros of a photometric golf launch monitor like the SkyTrak+, Bushnell Launch Pro, and Foresight Sports GC3 is that, because they sit next to the golf ball rather than behind it, they require a lot less room depth.

That fact is doubled when you consider that those camera launch monitors don’t need as much space to track the golf ball after you hit it, meaning an indoor golf simulator setup using something like a SkyTrak+ is going to require less space between the golf ball and screen or net than with something like the Mevo Plus Limited Edition.

Those space-saving advantages can be significant if you’re trying to build your dream golf simulator studio but are tight on space.

But there’s a distinct advantage to a radar-based golf launch monitor like the FlightScope Mevo Plus Limited Edition. And that it is that it makes playing simulator golf with both righties and lefties at the same time so much better.

With a golf launch monitor that sits to the side of the golf ball, you have to move the monitor back and forth between both sides of the ball if you want to measure both righty and lefty golf shots.

With the FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition, you don’t have to move anything.

So think about if you are going to regularly host both righties and lefties. Not having to interrupt your game to constantly move your golf launch monitor is going to be huge. So if that’s you, and you’ve got the room depth, the FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition likely makes a lot of sense.

Is the FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition a Good Indoor Golf Simulator Option?

As we noted at the outset, the regular Mevo Plus was already an incredible golf launch monitor. No other product near its price point offers as much data. But the Limited Edition model takes things a significant step further.

You’ll get:

  • Ball Speed
  • Club Head Speed
  • Smash Factor
  • Carry Distance
  • Total Distance
  • Launch Angle
  • Spin Rate
  • Spin Loft
  • Apex Height
  • Flight Time
  • Angle of Attack
  • Launch Direction
  • Spin Axis
  • Roll Distance
  • Lateral Landing
  • Shot Dispersion
  • Shot Type
  • Face to Path
  • Face to Target
  • Dynamic Loft
  • Club Path
  • Vertical Swing Plane
  • Horizontal Swing Plane
  • Low Point
  • Vertical Descent Angle
  • Curve
  • Club Speed Profile
  • Club Acceleration Profile

If you wanted all of that data with a standard edition Mevo Plus, you’d need to buy the Mevo+ Pro Package for an extra $1,000. But with the 2024 Limited Edition Mevo, it’s all included right out of the box.

Not only that, but you also get FlightScope’s Face Impact Location software, which is incredibly useful for game improvement. It shows you exactly where on the clubface you’re making contact with each of your shots. If you had a standard Mevo+ and wanted to add that Face Impact Location, it would cost you an extra $499. But it’s included with the purchase price of a Mevo+ Limited Edition.

If you bought a standard edition Mevo+ for $2,199 and then added the Pro Package for $1,000 and the Face Impact Location software for $499, you’d pay $3,698. But all of that comes preloaded on the Mevo Plus Limited Edition for a total price of $3,499. In other words, if you want everything a Mevo+ is capable of doing, you can save $200 by choosing the Limited Edition model.

But it gets even better, especially for fans of simulator golf. This new Mevo+ Limited Edition comes preloaded with 12 TruGolf E6 Connect golf simulator courses that you can’t buy separately. And the best part is that they include some of the most coveted courses in golf. In your simulator studio, you could play:

  • The Old Course at St. Andrews
  • Pebble Beach
  • Bethpage Black
  • Harbour Town
  • Bay Hill
  • The Belfry
  • Banff Springs
  • The Greenbriar
  • Wade Hampton
  • Aviara
  • Panther Lake
  • Oslo Golf Club

Beyond TruGolf E6 Connect, the Mevo Plus Limited Edition is also compatible with:

  • The Golf Club 2019
  • Awesome Golf
  • Creative Golf 3D
  • GSPro

When you consider the incredible array of data metrics, the impressive accuracy, and the range of third-party simulator software compatibility, it becomes clear that the FlightScope Mevo+ Limited Edition makes for an outstanding golf simulator.

If you have the space, and especially if you plan to play simulator golf with both righties and lefties, rest assured that the Mevo+ Limited Edition would be an awesome centerpiece for your indoor golf simulator studio.
