    The Dragonfly.

    I also have a full (non-motion 737 cockpit) that has shakers.

    I flown Level D’s a number of times so happy to off my comparison.

    Looking forward to your review. I'm also interested in the Dragonfly. Did you get the V2 model?

    I believe it goes fire ant 2,4,6 and the dragonfly being the DOF 6 unit now. So 4 units in total.

    Sorry for the delay in response-

    it is coming along quite nicely. I had an issue with one motor driver board, but Johnathon was very responsive about replacing it. He is also making a few custom mounts for the throttle / stick because I am using a real IPECO 737 seat which sits higher than a racing / gaming seat, so the controls need to be mounted higher.
