With yesterdays announcement of FlightSimExpo 2020 being cancelled, Honeycomb took to Facebook to show off what they would have shown at the show.

A single image was uploaded to their Facebook, showing an image of their upcoming Rudder Pedals. The image shows the iconic honeycomb pattern and red lights will be on the front of the pedals. While no name was officially given, the text on the image that says, “Holding short on Charlie. Just past Bravo” suggests they will be called Charlie Rudder Pedals.

No other information was shared about these pedals, but we will be sure to post about any new updates when they become available.
