    Just to look at the pictures my first impression is good, however I am very curious how this brand is in the mix with the others. To bad there isnt an English site.

    They were around a few years ago and if I remember corrctly based in Brazil. If it's the same company, they didn't have an export license so couldn't buy it then.

    I'll try to contact them in spanish - finally I can use what I learned in school ;D. Let's see maybe we can get an arrangement with them..... (for example if one of them sends them as present privately maybe that is possible....)

    Suggest you try in Portuguese as that's the language of the website. You can cut and paste the text into Google translate to translate both ways English/portuguese.
    For those prices treat yourself to a trip to Brazil and buy them. If you put them in your luggage there is no customs requirement and at that value you'll probably pay no import tax as I've found customs to be very generous on unusual items in my luggaga as they don't know what they are and are not really interested in electrical type equipment. I say this as an electrical engineer who has travelled around the world carrying all types of weird and wonderful electrical items in my luggage.

    Have you seen the crate it ships in ? Can't really see you slipping that into your hand luggage....

    Re: 737 Throttle look what I've found

    i contacted them in portuguese - I'll inform you... I mean the price is very good if it is good quality .... Btw.: do you know any good supplier who sells kits for the tq? (I mean like if you order Opencockpits MCP panel "kit" you can "build it yourself" with own parts and put it all together) simparts only sells the knobs and handles....


    Marc



    ps:
    in case you didn't understand what I am looking for: think about a Kit from Opencockpits or Cockpitsonic where you can build the throttle quadrant they usually sell as whole yourself

    Re: 737 Throttle look what I've found

    Please be careful about buying from Brazil, it's on the blacklist of most companies. Can't see anythig on the website to locate BRCockpit as a company. Get a landbased address and phone number that you can check before committing money. Only pay a deposit and pay the rest upon presentation of the couriers paperwork to prove that it's been shipped. Paypal has limits on the amount it guarantees.
    I was serious about hand carrying with your luggage. If its less than 20Kgs you can put it in the hold as normal luggage for free. WOW travel to Brazil, enjoy a holiday, view, check and buy your throttle, come home with it and enjoy it all for less than you would have paid for A.N.Other brand of throttle.
    I wish they made one for a 767

    The FDS jetmax throttle costs the same. Maybe a better option from a tried and proven company ?
