Honeycomb Aeronautical today shared a video of founder, Nicki Repenning, showing off the upcoming Bravo Throttle Quadrant in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. The video focuses on the throttle and Alpha Flight Controls being used to land one of the various 747 landing challenges in the simulator.
The video shows off the Bravo Throttle Quadrant in action, along with working gear lever, reverses and even flaps and speedbrakes. Over the past year, Microsoft and Honeycomb Aeronautical have worked together to ensure that all the products work flawlessly with one another.
Whilst the video is a great look at the new hardware to come, Honeycomb also confirmed that pre-orders for the new Bravo Throttle Quadrant will begin on September 1st 2020. Shipping will then happen directly from the factory, meaning you will get it 3-4 weeks earlier than buying it elsewhere. The team is still aiming for an October 2020 release, after it was pushed back due to challenges relating to COVID-19 having an adverse impact on production.
Details on how to pre-order will follow soon.
Finally, you could also win one of three Honeycomb baseball hats from New Era by sharing the 747 Landing Video. Full details can be found on their Facebook page.
