New force feedback options soon?
« on: June 22, 2024, 03:57:18 PM »
I think this looks pretty intriguing coming out of Flight Sim Expo. I've read the old MS Sidewinder force feedback had about 2Nm of force whereas this one is pulling 9Nm. I'm guessing it'll have similar increase in wallet force feedback as well.

Pre-order just went up.  A reasonable price for high-end.  Availability of 4 to 6 weeks is sooner than I expected.

And they claim 12Nm, which sounds really good. I'll wait to see if they're compatible with my VKB and for a flood of reviews to land on Youtube and whatnot. I see it's IL-2 and DCS ready and I bet it'll work with AH.

I have one of the lower tier MOZA steering wheel/pedals sets as my driving gear (R3 bundle) - it was a bit less $$ than FANATEC equivalents, and was available while the Fanatec stuff was backordered.  VERY impressed with the quality of the Moza product.  I pre ordered their FFB because I generally check out all the new sim gear, but I'm really hopeful that this new Moza base/stick is as good as their base tier wheel/peds for driving games are.

One thing is that the stick is a very reasonable price for a new metal grip/stick IMO, so hopefully they make some other options out of metal-ish materials like VKB/Virpil do.  Be nice to get an F15/F18 grip and maybe some commie stuff too.

I'm ordering it along with their grip and z-axis adapter; but I'm going to hold off until the first round releases and issues are identified. Not going to be a beta tester for a $1k stick setup.

Good call.

I'm sure Gman will put it through its paces and have some good insight.

I have about 40 sets of Hotas, going back to the 286 pc and even Commodore 64 era vintage units. Itíd just be  a spread in one of my extra offices when I get around to it.  I have close to the same number now of newer units from all the semi-custom companies that have popped out in the last 7 or 8 years. Itís been an addiction, worse than my pocket knife collection. 

Iíve been layed up with a shattered right leg going on a year now.  Then 3 weeks ago I got a small stroke and then pneumonia and bi lateral lung infections with pulmonary edemas etc.  Almost took me out, but after 20 days total in the hospital Iíll be out this week.  I had re subbed a couple months back, first order of biz is getting my setups going and getting back in the air.

Pics to follow.
