    i just got the new GS-5 gseat from Simxperience and would also like to use for flight simulators but Simxperience says it will be years before they add plugin for flight.
    I have purchased SimTools but need programming help. Has anyone tried this?

    Wow a G-seat that doesn't support flight titles :confused:. Since the GS-5 is new I haven't seen anyone hack it so it will work with Simtools yet but I could have missed it too. In any case imo you shouldn't have to do that after putting out the cash required to purchase a GS-5.

    My personal recommendation would be to return it while you can or sell it and take your loss. Then you will have at minimum some of your cash back so that you can buy a proper G-seat for flight and racing that you don't have to hack first.

    It just so happens I will be revealing such a G-seat soon that will be available for purchase and that works with Simtools. And instead of a measly 4 paddles it utilizes many more pressure zones that provides much better representations of g-forces such as sway forces that are actually applied to the sides of your body.

    I could reveal it now as it is ready to show but I'm looking into patentable aspects atm so my hands are still tied for a bit longer but stay tuned.
