Honeycomb Aeronautical has announced the Alpha Flight Controls XPC is now available for worldwide shipping. Alpha Flight XPC is compatible with both Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC.
The Alpha Flight Controls XPC features a new front grill design and full 180° yoke rotation with upgraded hall effect sensors to provide smooth precision with no centre detent. The base includes a switch panel with a master switch, alternator, avionics and light switches as well as a spring-loaded five-position ignition switch. The left and right handles sport 13 programmable buttons and switches. The Alpha Flight Controls XPC will be shipped from www.flyhoneycomb.com and participating retailers worldwide with a retail price of $349.99.
The Honeycomb Xbox Hub, releasing simultaneously, will allow owners of the Bravo Throttle Quadrant and the upcoming Charlie Rudder Pedals to use those devices in combination with the new Alpha XPC on the Xbox Series X|S. Like the Alpha XPC, the Honeycomb Xbox Hub will offer the same shipping options and retails at $39.99.
In addition, the Hub is compatible with the Logitech Flight USB Throttle and Rudder Pedals to offer a solution to the price-conscious flight simmer. The Alpha XPC/Xbox Hub/Logitech Flight Throttle bundle will be offered through retail partners for $429.99
Nicki Repenning, Founder and CEO of Honeycomb Aeronautical, said: “We have worked closely with Microsoft to implement Xbox Series X|S compatibility as well as the Microsoft Flight Simulator team to ensure that the Alpha XPC, the Bravo Throttle and Charlie Rudder Pedals, through the Xbox Hub, provides a plug and play experience.”
“The design of the yoke handle has been left largely unchanged compared with the outgoing Alpha and all Xbox buttons have been integrated discretely to retain an authentic aviation look. The yoke has also been updated with new 12-bit Hall Effect sensors, which increases the aileron and elevator sensor resolution by 400%. It features an updated panel design on the front of the base, which also includes a new spring-loaded ignition key and Xbox buttons.”
