Thread: New to MSFS 2020 - Creating a first setup

    Hi, It really is a sweet set up and I am going to use it as a base for mine if you don't mind.
    Could everyone look at the computer parts I have selected for my PC. I have put in a Nvidia GPU but will actually wait for the 3080 to come out and use that. It is my first build and I would really like some input or some confirmation that it is OK. I look forward to hearing from you all.

    Default Honeycomb vs Logitech yoke

    Hi Steve,

    I saw your September reply where you explained that you sold your Logitech and bought the Honeycomb yoke. I am just in the shopping stages and have been running through more and more reviews saying the Honeycomb is much better. Would you recommend I get the logitech rudder pedals or wait for Honeywell to make some? Not sure how much more realistic the rudder pedals are. My computer won't be dedicated for simming since I'll use if for work too.

    Thanks,
    Johnny

    Hi Johnny, the Honeycomb yoke is fantastic, as are their throttles. The main problem at the moment is availability. I ordered their “bravo” throttle unit in May last year from Amazon. It finally arrived 1st March this year!
    It was worth the wait though.
    As for pedals, I’m still using my (20 year old?) CH Products pedals. No doubt I will order Honeycomb’s “Charlie” pedals when they become available ...
    but it think it maybe a while.


    Regards
    Steve

    Thanks Steve, I'm going to switch my plans to the Honeycomb setup. I'm showing mid April delivery but that might just be their guess. I'll keep my expectations low!

    Default yoke inbound!

    I'm psyched the yoke arrives tomorrow! The bravo isn't expected to ship until middle of April but considering how long the wait was last year I'm pumped for this. I need a hobby.

    I actually use three (Panasonic) 43” 4K TV’s.
    Why only three, and why so small?

    I rarely use them now Steve, as I tend to use the VR headset now
