    I was about to, but I'm worried by the lack of infos (like the RFA) and reading through the lines I hardly aspect them to deliver the product by november '18

    they don't discuss firmware. I'm assuming its mmos but they don't say.

    I could really use a new set of peddles though...

    EDIT: I bought into the earlybird deal for the pedals @ 149.99 plus 20.00 for shipping.

    In response to @bruce stephen 's comment on software; I was watching Shaun Cole's Q&A on the wheel and pedals and he indicated that Feel VR has their own software to set up the wheel, etc.

    lol I pledged for the peddles also. all metal and loadcell for $169 seems like a pretty good deal.

    I was looking at purchasing them but I really have a feeling that they need a little more experience in the field. The tech demos that I saw were not in actual cockpits but a desktop setup. If you are trying to simulate something I would think you would do all that you can to add to the experience. The easiest way to make a sale is to eliminate as many objections as you can from the get go. I honestly hope that they succeed because I believe it will force a lower price point to reach for competitors. We live in a really great time for all the new options that are being offered to us.

    I certainly hope that they refine the hardware, eliminate the 3D printed parts move towards either injection molded plastic or something similar.

    3D printed parts aren't exactly long term or confidence inducing for a commercial product.

    Haven't heard much from them since the initial prototypes were reviewed by guys like SRP, The Simpit & the old ISRTV crew.

    Wishing them well though, as the more competition there is out there the better for the consumer.
