Interesting...

Will extensions be available at preorder as well?

What is the weight of the throttle and the stick? The thin deskmounts with the small surface friction clamp makes it look a lot lighter than advertised...

Whats the estimated shipping price from China to Europe?

 

Thanks

Questions:

 

1. Will you sell the throttle separately and what are the individual prices? Taurus base + F18 grips?

 

2. Do you plan on a "replica" panel that has the controls that are in those positions on the real F/A-18C, with the correct dimensions?

 

3. Do you have any other aircraft planned already for additions to the throttle?

This looks very solid and I'm inclined to buy a set. Preorder starts July 1st, but when will you ship the items?

Love it.. really do.. but why why waste all that space and switches on the "ground power" switches which pilots DO NOT USE AT ALL. Those switches are wasted in a sim. Those are only for us maintainers to use on the ground. Why not remove them and use some other useful switches there instead other than going for the full replica when it's wasted space and switches.

So bind them to something different?

Dear Gruman,

Yes, the extensions will be there then.

The weight is a problem ,we still work hard to reduce the package weight.

You can buy from our Euro/US store(1.5 more month for ship transport), or send from China by air.

 

About the desk mounts, we have simulation when design them, when 100lbs force from top and 50lbs force from side work together on it, less than 2mm move on top of grip. It's as strone as your bike structure, you only need to worry your desk board!

Thank you very much.

Interesting but, I will not pre-order and recommend to not pre-order until we have multiples exhaustive reviews. If the quality is similar to "Tranvel" and "Repilica".

 

Dear Icebeat, please waiting for our launch events in Shanghai City! There will be long video include all test info you would like in early July.

Dear Aniron,

1.No plan to sell separately right now.

2.Something more interesting will come later, but all should be affordable.

3.Yes both Throttle and Joystick,more like F16 is ready, please see our previous release: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...ight=F18+HOTAS

 

Thanks a lot

Winwing,

 

Can you send a review model to someone well known in the DCS community for a review? Thinking (if they are willing) one of these guys since they have done hardware reviews before:

A couple of msgs above he said not at this time. But add me to the chorus of those who just want the throttle base/grips.

Dear sir,

We are very entangled with the panel when design it. We want something original,but useful.

 

Finally, we decide to keep the original look and make more optional panel like "combat ready"/"take off". you can see them when pre-order in July.

 

The most important is all those are affordable.

 

Thanks for your suggestion.

1) Will there be an official dealer in Europe, where we can send faulty units for maintenance? Have a not so good experience currently with another company.

And having to ship a unit back to China sounds not so great.

2) What is the warranty time of the product.

3) Could you share the official price in Euro, including all import taxes (besides shipment)?

4) Mirage 2000?
