"In the joystick encoder is used. Number - 5 pieces."
Dear virtual pilots.
Virtual Design Bureau is finalizing a new joystick.
We do this joystick "based on" piston aircraft of World War II. We called this joystick - "Gladiator". Under what name it goes on sale too early to speak.
Why pistons WWII?
1) The market is already joysticks from leading brands, stylized modern combat aircraft.
2) Most virtual pilots to fly it on the pistons.
3) I love piston aircraft of that era, and since the final decision to launch the project to take me, I quickly and without a doubt chose piston design and ergonomics. Here and so took office.
Joystick planned budget. I really hope to see retail prices near $ 70-90. Not expensive. (Price depends strongly on the "greed" of Retail). Prices writing in dollars, as the joystick is made in China.
So characteristics. (Not the fact that the joystick will go into production so as we developed. We are now at the stage of the rendering cost joystick. I admit that some things can be removed or made in the form of additional upgrade. I will keep you informed of any changes) .
Axles - 8.
HAT - 1.
Buttons - 39.
Joystick controller is based on NJoy32. Therefore, the number of axes may be increased by adding a virtual axes. Due to the 3-position switch mods number of virtual buttons can be increased to 111.
Roll, pitch, TWIST - New generation of proximity sensor Mars.
Other axes - potentiometers.
In the joystick encoder is used. Number - 5 pieces.
There will also be an opportunity to connect external pedals and tumbler-keypads.
This is not a "killer sticks" premium segment. Joystick budget imposes many restrictions.
To make quality, but expensive device - just.
Make a cheap, low-quality but - even easier.
But the "sweet spot" - very hard. But we will try.
PS Of course, this is not the final 3D model. We shall now proceed to the rapid prototyping. We are planning to get a workable sample in mid-March. Specificity of production in China - The Chinese New Year begins. In February, few works.
Isso ai permitirá trimar com "rotaries" num certo Combat Flight Game.
Não gostei do desenho "de mesa"*, mas por 80$ esta valendo.
* Na verdade o UIV diz esperar que usem "sobre os joelhos"... sei não não, estes conceitos esta parecendo a estória de XP e unlock...
