This might change sim flying in its core
Total Controls, a Swedish-based company dedicated to the world of flight simulations, has announced an exciting new project on Kickstarter. Introducing the Multi Function Button Box, fans of flight simulators around the world are being given a clear advantage in the skies with technology that reduces the need for mouse inputs in flight simulation games, including the popular DCS World and Microsoft Flight Simulator, among many others. Ushering in a new era of play, the Total Controls Multi-Function Button Box features input functions for the most common aircraft.
From functions used on the F/A-18C Hornet UFC (Up Front Controller) and the F-16C Viper, the Total Controls Multi Function Button Box puts the focus back on flying. With notable functions, such as two rotary encoders that work with the aircraft's radios, seven rotary switches that can be assigned to any axis in the simulator, such as lights or flaps, and latching handles that make commands like landing gear and arresting hooks easy to deploy, the Total Controls Multi Function Button Box is a truly adaptable piece of technology. And it works perfect in virtual reality
