    Wow, very cool! :-cool

    I'm afraid to ask what the price tag is in US $. It's got to be over $1000. Still very cool, and if I had the extra cash lying around I'd order one today. :-)

    I could probably buy a scrap 737 throttle quad and use some old potentiometers and duct tape to get the same effect...

    Heh...no wait, that's a good idea. I've some scrap potentiometers and duct tape...TO MARANA OR BUST!

    FLIGHTFX POLICY
    1.) We design for reality, not for idealism.
    Thus, you will not see virtual cabins on our aircraft. You can not see inside the real thing anyway, unless you are looking into the sun. You will find virtual cockpits but they will not be visible from outside for the same reason.
    2.) We design for people with real computers. Thusly, we will not waste polygons on superfluous parts. We will use a texture when there is no noticeable difference between it and a group of performance wasting parts. We will model our aircraft efficiently. If you do not like it, too bad.
    3.) We will give you the latest features, but we WILL NOT sacrifice visual accuracy to implement them. Accuracy comes before eye candy.[/font size]

    Very cool :-cool, but I can't believe that price tag. :-(

    Does it really cost that much to produce those things to warrent those type of prices? It seems like all FS hardware is through the roof in price.

    $1932?????

    That's 25 hours renting the Archer I fly!

    If one were renting a C-152 around these parts, it would be 32 hours; well on your way to getting your PPL.

    Well, I guess it will fill someone's needs, but certainly not mine!

    Looks like a nice unit however, very realistic.

    There's not enough people making them, it's pretty much charge-what-you-want because there is no competition for the devices.

    If more and more companies started to produce stuff like that, then we might see a price decrease in them.

    Just my 2 cents :-)
