    Hi, after tinkering a few DIY handbrakes I decided to go the commercial route and bought the handbrake from Heusinkveld Engineering. First I wanted to buy a hydraulic handbrake (up tp $500 and more), at least I changed my opinion when I stumbled over the handbrake from Heusinkveld (~$220 or €200) using load cell technology. "The handbrake can detect forces of up to 17kgs (measured at the soft grip at the lever) and features an overload protection."

    My first impression so far (today was unboxing): very solid, stiff, real progression, absolutely no slack. Size (height) is just perfect for my simulator, the DSD handbrake (also load cell) is smaller and - ugly. lol

    I will test it the upcoming days.
