Flight Simulation

From simply adding an X-keys Desktop under the monitor to emulate an F-16 ICP, to using the X-keys Matrix board for all the switches in a full blown cockpit, these guys have taken advantage of X-keys versatility and reliability to move one step closer to virtual reality in their flight simulations.

New X-keys Matrix Review in Computer Pilot Magazine

X-keys Matrix Board in Computer Pilot Magazine Article

“The Matrix can be a daunting undertaking to an electronics beginner like I was. But it quickly turns into a fun adventure with big rewards at the end. It is great way to get a more useful and realistic cockpit. There is nothing like reaching for the switch instead of watching it being flipped on-screen. At only USD$59.99, I highly recommend it to any cockpit builder.” — Matt Edwards

Snake 122's Great X-keys Adventure

Matt's Simulator Matt F-16C Block 50/52 Simulator

"I first learned about the X-keys Matrix Board from Flareless.  I love my X-keys Matrix so much, that I wrote an article for the February 2006 issue of Computer Pilot Magazine on how others can use the X-keys Matrix Board to add switches to their own cockpits. It was a great adventure with big rewards at the end." --Matt “Snake122”Edwards


X-keys Review in PC Pilot

PC Pilot's review of the X-keys Pro

“The extent to which this enhances the feeling that you're controlling an aircraft, instead of operating a computer, is surprising; doing away with the mouse, in particular, makes a significant difference.” — Iain Dawson

"We are using the 20 key PS/2 unit to simulate the ICP panel in FALCON 4.0. It fits well between the Masterpilot Quickshots that are being used as MFDs and functions well in the daisy chain with the MFDs, and CH Products or THRUSTMASTER HOTAS gear." -- Dan “Crash” Crenshaw
