MaxFlightStick released version 4 of their Huey Controls

The manufacturer is releasing the latest iteration of one of their best-selling systems, tested by real Huey pilots.

MaxFlightStick Huey Controls v4

MaxFlightStick’s Huey kit has quite an history already. The original kit was developed and built with the help of 3 army helicopter pilots and the company has been improving the kit since then, always with the help of those that know and fly the real deal.

Version 4.0, which should be available starting next week, builds upon its ancestors as MaxFlightStick is trying to match the real controls “in terms of feel, function and durability”.

The features list is quite impressive, and, for a semi-pro/pro level system, it comes with a price tag that may be a bit high for a lot of simmers, but, just like any quality controls, it ends up being an investment for those that are either “serious” simmers or professionals.

The MaxFlightStick Huey v4 set is available for the same price as version 3 (US$2,280.00) at the company’s website.

Until then, you can check out the features list and the amazing photos of the kit.
