Review: VIRPIL VPC Constellation ALPHA Prime

Review: VIRPIL VPC Constellation ALPHA Prime

The ALPHA Prime is one of the latest VIRPIL products to come out to the market. But while it’s a grip that seems to be mostly aimed at space/sci-fi games, there’s a particular feature to this model that made me take a second look at it.

Review: WINWING F-16EX joystick grip and Hotas Orion 2 base

WINWING has been releasing some very interesting hardware. While this set is clearly targeted at the fixed wing simmer (it is an F-16 grip after all), the company is also winking at the helicopter pilot.

A few weeks ago, VIRPIL released a new product which is clearly aimed at the helicopter pilots, even if the design is a bit… Odd. Intrigued? So was I. Fortunately, I got my hands on a unit to tell you all about it.

Review: Cowan Simulation Bell 206B3 for X-Plane

Review: Cowan Simulation Bell 206B3 for X-Plane

The Bell 206 JetRanger has been a part of our simulation lives for years and it has been a part of several milestones in the simming world. We have been lacking a great, updated model for X-Plane. Could Cowan Simulation’s 206 be it?
