Simgears F-16 ICP


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My unit came in today, there was a sale back in March and the price was good so I ordered one. 
 

The build quality is better than my Tekcreation unit as it’s a full commercial product with pretty box and packages. It is very sturdy especially the buttons and dials which are thick, but it is also more expensive. Functionality-wise though it is pretty much the same as other ICP devices. 

The brightness dial controls the unit’s LED lighting. Mine also came with a free acrylic stand which was a bonus offer during the sale, and it is very well made and heavy, great for desktop use.  You can find more pics on their website www.simgears.com. 
 

Overall, I like it mainly because of the build quality. There is one negative point, the dial inputs are a bit jittery although not as much as my Tekcreation unit—still not good enough to bind as DCS zoom view or something that requires precise control (works fine as a trim wheel in MSFS).  I don’t think it is a huge upgrade from the Tekcreation unit as functionality-wise it is the same, but if I had to pick one without taking the price into consideration it would be this one. 

 

Edit:

The metal toggle switches seem to have a momentary rather than persistent behavior.  It would register an input for 2-3 seconds then OFF, mimicking a long button press instead of constant ON which is the typical behavior of regular toggle switches.  This is no issue if you bind it as is for ICP functions in DCS, but for other purposes it will not give persistent input or button press.  I think this behavior can probably be changed in the firmware.

UPS Shipping took a little over a week for me, ITA to USA.  I think it spent at least a few days in customs.
