    Re: Simquip

    I still think you're painting a false picture here.

    The FDS Gear I have in my house as well as the MIP and other gear we have at work (GE Aviation) is the same stuff. There's no "Cheap plastic line". Hence the prices you see posted there is the same Gear.

    Re: Simquip

    I'll go back to what I said earlier. FDS and many other vendors provide PRO level products. I've seen, do it your self-ers make panels that are as good as the real aircraft, you can't tell the difference.

    Not fair to say one company is the best when it is not so.

    Re: Simquip

    Hi guys,
    I think I have to put this blatantly.
    I'm not saying they are the best.
    The thread was based on home sim builders wondering at simquips pricing. Am I going to buy an 18000 dollar seat for my home sim?.... No.... Because it's not supposed to go in a home sim!!!.
    I've opened two separate shipments containing Factory pre wired pro level complete cockpits from fds. I'm saying that they are great for the entry level fixed base device scene. They are a great company and provide great service.

    Can't sit hear and chat, I have to go downstairs and scrape the twenty year old paint off my new(old) webber crew seats. Sob sob.
    Such is the life of us sim builders.

    Re: Simquip

    Did someone here actually buy any part from simquip and can tell us about his / hers impressions about quality?
    I found the B737 shell there (fibre glass) and I think at least that price (1,210 EUROS) is adequate, so I am making my mind up...
    It looks much closer to the real thing than the FDS counterpart. But is it sturdy enough?
    (I don´t want to go into discussions about health risks from fibre glass or "it doesn´t matter what it looks like on the outside when you´re sitting inside"..., please leave that aside).

    Re: Simquip

    Choffman did you end up buying the shell? I would save considerably in shipping (none!) when it comes down to buying the 737 shell

    GLB have also just brought out liners for very reasonable prices.

    Hi Chris,
    I bought some cast yokes from simquip a couple of years back. Really nice quality and the guys there were good to deal with.

    Re: Simquip

    Do not buy in Simquip, search the internet and forum. There are several claims for dishonesty of this dirty business. I was another that was stolen by them, beware.
