Honeycomb Aeronautical’s Nicki continues to talk on stage at FlightSimExpo and has just confirmed a few new products coming out.
Starting with the Alpha Flight Controls XPC, this new version of the original Alpha Yoke will come with a number of new features. The new form factor means the rounded top has now gone, whilst hall-effect sensors have been added, which gives it 400% better resolution. In addition, a new spring-loaded ignition has also been added. It will be compatible with Xbox, PC and Mac and will retail for $299. Q1 2022 is the ETA on the Alpha Flight Controls XPC.
As previously announced, the Tango Foxtrot is also progressing nicely. A new image of it was shown off during the presentation. In addition, a new telescopic table was announced that will be really well suited for the hardware.
A new Lima Flight Chair has also been announced. Will have normal armrests and integrated stick and throttle platforms that are adjustable. It will work with all products and clicks in magnetically. It is also compatible with other products from other manufacturers.
A new GA Trim Wheel cover for the Bravo is also coming. This silicon cover will give the wheel more grip and a more GA feel.
New accessories will also come, including new XL clamps, a dust cover to protect your equipment and finally a new high-powered USB hub that has been designed for flight simmer’s needs. The hub is 30w, externally powered with 6 ports.
Honeycomb Aeronautical is stepping into military hardware! They have announced the Sigma Tau which will have some amazing new features. Although not much was said, Nicki said “It will have some incredible functionality that has never been done; neither civilian and military.” Nicki said that the stick will be out in Q1 2022, and the throttle will be out in Q2 2022.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
