Just back from a re-install of LM’s Prepar 3D v5.1 and a long night of re-installing stuff, it just kept crashing on me and I don’t know why? So far so good though.
But default aircraft in this sim is the F-35 and LM’s depiction in sim of the throttle and stick look kinda close to these shots … the F-35 is supposed to be the absolute crème de la crème state of the art … or so LM will have us believe, its some Aircraft for sure, so maybe that’s what its throttle looks like?
Always thought LM’s cockpit of the F-35 looked kinda cartoon-ish to me, but what do I know? I know its apparently an all glass cockpit display in real life though.
Not that I have any real plans to buy this controller, but you never know, it might just be the next gen most ergonomic and comfortable throttle control ever? always used to arc throw PC throttle controllers, but if a sort of flat slide throttle is what the real jet uses, maybe that’s for a good reason?
Are there any real pictures of close up detail of the F-35 cockpit and controllers (any variant) out there we can compare with?
It could just be that LM want to throw folk off the scent with their P3dv5 F-35 sim cockpit, Russia, China are bound to be able to get a hold of this sim too.
Whatever the case is, its hard to imagine the glass cockpit in P3D is accurate and its depiction of controllers too?
The stick base in pics, doubt that’s a controller base as we all must realise a WIP pic maybe with a base to display it on … I really don’t know? LOL
If they are serious and these are indeed early visionary shots, good luck to them, have plenty of controllers here already though for now.
