CONTROLLERS

Based on years of gameplay in Hardcore SIM aviation and other flight games, the following have proved to be bomb proof rugged and dependable tools of the trade. I have logged thousands of hours on my system. After ten years I had a pot (potentiometer) go out on the pedals. When I asked CH for a replacement pot, they sent me a brand new rudder set free and said thanks for your support.  The CH community is simply the best.

NOTE: This keyboard is simply AWESOME for gaming! Each key is capable of being programmed. I use it as a systems controller, divided into quadrants for specific panel control. So you would set up radio, navigation, weapons and radar systems (to name just a few) quadrants then specifically program the control keys for that system. No complicated multi-key presses to get something done, you do all that in the setup. You can have multiple game profiles also. Check eBay and discount stores for the best price on this one.
