Snakebyte group has announced ‘Honeycomb Aeronautical’ - a new brand of flight simulation hardware. With the first units expected to ship this summer, the range is designed to offer authentic flight simulation products suitable for both enthusiasts and students training for a pilot license.
Designed and developed by pilots and flight engineers in California, Honeycomb Aeronautical has engineered the range using genuine aerospace components and the same internal mechanics used in certified simulators approved by the FAA for flight training.
Each product in the range is designed to function alone or can be combined with other products in the Honeycomb range to function as a full cockpit simulation. In addition, Honeycomb has designed its range to work alongside components from other flight simulation manufacturers, negating the need to begin building its cockpit anew.
The first product in the Honeycomb Aeronautical range is the: Alpha Flight Control – Yoke & Switch Panel – SRP: $169.99 (£136 approx). Manufactured from aerospace-grade components, the Yoke & Switch Panel is a multipurpose Yoke & Switch Panel, compatible with all major flight simulation software. An all-steel shaft with metal mechanical movement provides full 180° yoke movement. In addition, it features four buttons, four two-way switches and one, eight-way hat switch, offering an avionics switch panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches. The Yoke & Switch Panel also includes a mounting bracket for the Honeycomb multipurpose panels.
