Fulcrum Simulator Controls has started pre-orders for the upcoming Fulcrum Throttle, with shipping expected to commence in February 2023. The company also unveiled two new products: the Pro Jetliner Levers and Trim Wheel.
The Fulcrum Throttle features metal components and consists of six analogue levers using the same non-contact GMR (Giant Magnetoresistance) sensors as the Fulcrum Yoke. This ensures that it doesn’t spike or give spurious inputs, even over extended periods. The lever tension is based on a real aircraft and a desk clamp features a tilting mechanism to simulate different aircraft configurations. Other details include a reverse/cut-off detent on each axis, six two-way momentary rocker switches and interchangeable lever tops for different aircraft types.
The Fulcrum Trim Wheel is close to pre-order release and can be used as a standalone product or attached to the Fulcrum Throttle. Like their other products, it is built from metal and comes with a landing gear switch and a pair of two-way rocker switches.
The Fulcrum Pro Jetliner Levers are an optional add-on to the Fulcrum Throttle and enable you to simulate jetliner-style operations more accurately. The four thrust levers can be used for two- or four-engine aircraft while the speed brake and flap lever feature additional plates for detents and labelling. The flaps have detents from 0 to 40-degree positions while the speed brake has down, armed and in-flight detents. The thrust levers have working reverse levers and autothrottle and TOGA switches.
The Fulcrum Throttle is priced at £349 plus 20% VAT for UK customers (worldwide shipping is also available). It can be ordered via their website: www.fulcrumsim.com. Delivery of the throttle is due to start at the end of February 2023. Additional details and pre-order announcements for the Pro Jetliner Levers and Trim Wheel will be provided in February next year.
