    Question Flight Deck Solutions or Engravity? 737NG Build

    Hello Folks!

    My first post here, just a brief introduction: My name's Oliver, I'm a student living in Italy, and looking to build a 737NG sim.

    Right back onto topic I'm looking to buy either

    - FDS B737 PRO-M DUAL SEAT TRAINING DEVICE (DSTD)

    - Engravity MIP performance line PRO


    They both look pretty good to me, at the moment I'm leaning more towards the FDS, but I'm still unsure.


    Does anyone have either of these, are there some better points of the one or the other?

    I know the FDS is about 10,000CAD$, not sure about the Engravity.


    I've been on flightsim for about 5 years now, flying thousands of hours online on VATSIM, and really want to take this hobby to the next level.


    Cheers!

    I don't think Engravity sells a dual seat trainer. You may want to contact them on that. FDS does offer one. I think if you are looking to get pre assembled you may have to contact both of them. Both companies build quality products.

    Thanks for the info! I'm looking for as much as a complete build as possible, as I haven't got much time for assembly. I understand you work or support Engravity, but can anyone point me to a neutral difference?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: oh and I've seen cockpit sonic aswell, now I'm really confused as to what is better

    Hi,

    I haven't used either, but from what I've heard Engravity seems to have more detail in it's products and the service appears to be better from what I've heard others say over the last few months.

    I recently bought a built the whole desktop NG kit from Engravity, along with their CDU, (and the joint stuff from CP Flight).

    I would say very highly recommend Engravity on all fronts; quality, service, etc. My only mild niggle is that I find the delivery costs can be a little high, considering I am just over the channel from them, in the UK, I thought 20 to have 3 Boeing knobs delivered was a little much!

    However, all of hte Engravity products are of truly superb quality and the service from Stef is second to none.

    Incidentally, regarding your comments about 'neutral' support; Stef (dnoize) is a major player on this forum and a really up front, helpful, honest, guy. Yes he is connected to Engravity but you never get 'sales blah' from him here; just good information and advanced notice of new developments and products.
