A machine that takes home flight simulation to the next level.
Read "A Full-Motion Simulator for Your Living Room?" for more info.
I don't know any normal person who would own one of these. For 57 grand go get yourself a real plane, kids!
At a price of 57 big ones, this thing might find a niche for itself somewhere. I just happen not to have the slightest clue as to where that niche might possibly be.
As a Cirrus pilot, I am somewhat confused as to why the designers chose a both a Mooney AND a Saratoga as opposed to a side stick Cirrus/Corvalis design. The primary flight objectives of a flight school are clearly met with the Cessna 172 election, and the high performance end is met with the Mooney OR the Piper, but why not a side stick option for the largest selling single airplane in the world? Yes, at $57,000.00 - a steeply priced addition to one's den, but still represents 1/10 the price of my airplane when new. If the end market is "home use" then the price needs to go down or they need to option this thing for Cirrus/Corvalis owners.
I would like to have one but the price is way to high to even put on the wish list. Maybe some day when the price drop's 50-60% then it would be a big seller for sure.
Just like said above get a real plane for less but with this one the best part is no hanger rent,fuel,insurance,and you can fly anytime you want.
I sure hope that the white lever the trainee in the image is reaching down to manipulate isn't the throttle!
The OVO-4 is certainly an impressive piece of kit, but far to expensive. Only for those that can afford it. I think I will stick with flight sim games.
OVO-4 good if you got the cash. An alternative? Set up your very own flight sim kit at home. Have three monitors, one in the middle, one on the left and one on the right. This will give a bigger view of the game. You'll also need a joystick. The best part of this is that it will cost a fraction of large flight sim and you can still get great flying experience.
Am I the only one how know about the aviation market? For 57 grand you can buy yourself an airplane yes (an old one), full stop. You will have to spend another 57 grand sooner or later in order to face the costs of overhaul, maintenance, fuel, hangar....
Does anybody know about another motion simulator at better price? If you find, please let me know
