    New company ?

    I just came across this website :

    http://apsan.com.au/collections/simulation

    Does anybody have experience with their products ? It looks attractive.

    It looks like they are just reselling CPFlight and other items.

    Yes but look at the aft overhead kit, nice 5 mm panels and pretty cheap. That's definitely not CPflight.

    I don't know...

    The overhead looks nice, I guess. I don't think it is theirs though. If you read the notes, there are some translation errors... ones I wouldn't normally expect to see from a company in an English speaking country. More than likely someone elses overhead, which means we've probably seen the product. Don't get me wrong, it could very well be a great company, with great products. We won't know until someone tries it.

    I am generally wary of any company that doesn't openly advertise/reveal that their products are someone else's brand, especially in the case of the CP flight stuff.

    Take the MCP737EL for instance. They list it at $850 (I will assume Australian Dollars). CPFlight sells it for AUD 430 (AUD 889 w/ VAT) at today's exchange. I'm not 100% but I don't think Australia pays VAT on EU orders.

    All the pics on the site I've seen elsewhere. Again, not criticizing the company.

    My 2 cents.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see. Haven't seen this overhead anywhere though, and I'm pretty familiar with what's available.

    the picture of the desktop MIP is taken from the fly engravity site, however, the picture of the seperate components is definately not flyengravity.

    The highres picture of the listed AFT overhead comes from the simworld site. However the fuzzy picture with all the seperate components shows a different AFT overhead (check the cut outs for the annnciators).

    Seems they use the pictures of known vendors to promote their own (different) products.

    However, the cpflight gear is honestly listed with cpflight as te vendor.

    Re: New company ?

    I discussed this site previously with Ian (flaps2approach) -

    do an ns lookup on the domain. The person running the sitr actually has an account here on this forum. I have even bought second hand cp flight items from him.

    regards.
