    Something alot of people have been waiting for, so here is a status update on the control column.

    Hard to say now since development has not been fully finished yet. A price will only be given when final production models are ready to be launched.

    The control column will be aimed at the high end market.

    This is just too cool...
    * motorized control load to feel the forces when flying.
    * Auto movement when flying on auto pliot.

    BTW just heard the announcement on www.ifcradio.info The new name change to Fly Engravity.

    They also mentioned Fly Engravity going to IFC NEC.

    IFC Radio is really taking off

    Yeah right, it's a real one!

    Seriously though, that is fantastic, I am drooling. My sim is screaming out for replica yokes, and they were always on the horizon. I'm already having the house valued for a second mortgage in anticipation of your pricing announcement. My plan was to buy real ones from the US at $300each.
    Q. Will the yoke handle be available seperately without all the fruit? I already have my dual control working sweet.
    Q. Would you like to send 2 free samples for a product review in Computer Pilot? Lol!!!!

    First Q of 07 has come and gone. You might be better off getting a pair from Nick at APHS.

    I too was interested in this yoke, but wasn't interested in the wait. Same with the chair.

    I'd be interested in knowing where the trip reminders and trim switches were sourced from. Those are nearly unobtainable, though Nick has the trip reminders. Not sure about the trim switches.

    Development is still in progress.

    Programming and fine tunning of the forces takes alot of time.
    We want do do it right or not do it at all since this gear will be used in pro setups.

    For those thinking of buying real columns, go for it. These units will be prices way above the real units taken out of an old 200 (i think you can get yoke and column together for around 500 each side).

    Our control columns will be priced way above, due to custom machining, software programming and control forces. This is not a toy, its pro equipment.

    Trim switches and trip reminder are custom made by us and are not available seperately, neither are the yokes... sorry, but theres others supplying those.
