Thanks for the quick shipping Andre. Super easy setup and it worked out of the box - which feels very rare now a days. Got my custom setup going which I'm sure I'll continue to tweak but it feels great.

Hi, I'm looking for a little advice. I'd like to get one of Andre's Jetseats, however my seat is a bit small. I use the same rig for flightsims and race sims and both get about equal play time. So I am wondering which version would be best, both for fitting my seat, but also for maximizing the best tactile feedback for both game types; the JetSeat Race or the JetSeat FSE.


my setup:
Spoiler:
It's still a bit of a work in progress ... perpetually


It seems like the JetSeat Race would likely fit better. But how difficult would it be to make a notch for the centered joystick? It already just touches the seat at maximum backward deflection.

Also would the JetSeat Race still provide accurate and appropriate feedback for flightsims?

Thanks for any suggestions or guidance from anyone.

Cheers

I suggest something like that would be fine:
Race size, but original Gametrix motors layout, small cutout.
Is your Sparco seat cover hairy?

Thanks Andre, that sounds great!

Do you mean hairy for the velco to attach to the seat cover? It's quite smooth, velcro will hold things in place, but weakly. The Jetseat straps could easily wrap behind the seat cushion and velcro strongly to the actually seat under the cushion. It's difficult to describe, but I don't think holding the Jetseat in place will be a problem at all.

Yes, hairy for the velco to attach to the seat cover. I paid attention to those small black pillows.
I can provide both velcros and elastic bands to attach the JetSeat.

Just discovered this and would love to order. Got a few questions is the KW-908 JetSeat the newest one we can buy.
EDIT:I see you have the kw-908, kw-908AM and the FSE versions. Could anyone give me any advice on choosing between these for DCS.

I would say KW-908 JetSeat is the most popular and proven but it's not the newest.
About the mods please read my explanation on this page https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...34704&page=174

Thanks Andre. My apologies - we had a big wind storm here yesterday and my internet connection was not working for the last day. I will send you a private message to arrange this order.

Thanks for all your help.
