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.
The goal of the ATP-1 project is to provide, for free, a hobbyist level helicopter anti-torque pedal system kit consisting of documentation and 3d printable part files for use with home flight simulation software.
Helicopter controls, although somewhat similar in shape, are quite different from their fixed-wing counterparts. If you’re like most simmers and come from a fixed-wing background, get ready: things are about to become fun (and perhaps a bit weird).
