The current thinking is to make available the Spitfire Mk.IX Simulator Cockpit in the following formats:
- Plans with water jet cutting patterns for plywood, aluminium sheet and mild steel plate.
- Bend diagrams for plating.
- Cutting details for standard extrusions.
- Purchase electronics components and some of the more custom bits directly off our site.
- Full assembly drawings and manual.
- 3D Printing components purchased on our site and printed and distributed through Shapeways.
- Fully assembled, on site, turn-key simulator, without motion simulation platform.
- Fully assembled, on site, turn-key simulator including motion simulation platform.
Details on this and costing is planned to be available by the end of the year. Before the products become available we will be thoroughly testing and doing quality control on the packages. This will be done through building and testing the prototype.
We will also gauge the demand for an interface with say the Spade Grip to the Thrustmaster Warthog Joystick and make that available earlier. Such an arrangement would not have the full functionality of the TM joystick as the Spitfire grip only has gun control (safety, cannon, MG and both) and brakes.
