I sold my Saitek gear and cockpit panel

I have been flying in my home simulator based on a Cessna 172 cockpit for almost two years now. My gear is focused on the tactile fidelity of a real cockpit, using a yoke and throttle quadrant and simulated gauges. Everything runs wonderfully with X-Plane 11 and is super easy to configure. This is probably the most common and well-supported gear you can get for a home cockpit.

Lately I have been wanting to fly other types of aircraft, including fighter jets, and the narrowly focused nature of my gear doesn’t handle the versatility I need. As a result, I have sold all of my current avionics (other than my rudder pedals) and am switching to a touch screen for gauges and a Thrustmaster H.O.T.A.S. ‘Warthog’ joystick and throttle for flight controls.

I have sold the following items as a package to a small airport in Michigan.

Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle quadrant.

Saitek Flight Instrument Panels (six gauges).

Saitek Radio Panel.

Saitek Switch Panel.

Saitek Multi-panel.

Volair Sim Avionics Cockpit Panel. Read this thorough review: https://www.avsim.com/home/reviews/hardware/review-avionics-panel-by-volair-r3904/
