Why a flight simulator cockpit?
If you're browsing this site it may be out of curiosity or you
looking for something to enhance your simulation gaming experience. If you are new
to flight or racing simulation you may be looking for a way of creating
a system that will add more realism and enjoyment to your gaming. A
provide both by placing the controls of a vehicle or aircraft in
a more realistic position. This produces more immersion in the game,
thus more realism and enjoyment. Another benefit of ergonomic placement is
less strain on the arm, wrists and neck as you play for extended
An added benefit of a simulator cockpit system is that your gaming controls and
equipment can be permanently set up in your cockpit. There's no need to
remove them from a desk when the family needs the computer for other
uses. Normally, at some point you'll want a dedicated system for
simulation gaming and a cockpit can provide the perfect platform that
brings all the components together.
Flight sims such as MS flight simulator X, FS2004 and X-Plane can
have a hundred commands that can be activated by a keyboard, yoke,
joystick or switch panel modules. Combat sims such as Falcon Allied
Forces, DCS BlackShark and Battle of Britain and many more literally have hundreds of commands
to deal with.
A cockpit is a must to mount a yoke or HOTAS (Hands on
Throttle and Stick) at a minimum. The keyboard or other control panel
can then be placed in a position where the buttons and switches are
within easy access.
