Logitech Offers Force-Feedback FlightSim Interfaces

Logitech Says It Makes Sims More Real

This might have come in really handy duing the spate of bad Florida weather that kept ANN's ... and lots of other airplanes ... on the ground last month. Logitech today unveiled the its Flight System G940, which the company says will provide flight simulation enthusiasts with a realistic experience. The latest addition to the acclaimed Logitech G-series line of gaming peripherals and the company's first force-feedback flight simulation controller, the design and controls of the Flight System G940 were inspired by military and commercial planes and helicopters.

"There's nothing ordinary about a G-series gaming peripheral, and the G940 is no different," said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech's director of product marketing for gaming. "We approached this project with the goal of redefining the flight sim experience. Whether you're flying an A380, an F/A-18 Hornet or a Comanche helicopter, when you want to feel the wind on your wings, control engines together or independently or master tricky maneuvers, the G940 behaves and feels like the real thing - from takeoff to landing."

The three-component Logitech Flight System G940 features a force feedback joystick, dual throttle and rudder pedals. And, with more than 250 programmable button options integrated into a fully featured HOTAS (or Hands On Throttle-and-Stick) design, you're able to access critical aircraft systems without taking your hands off the controls.

The system is also easy to set up; just connect the throttle and the pedals to the joystick cable, and plug the USB connector into your computer. And all components feature mounting hard points, making it easy to secure them to a surface. The Flight System G940 is compatible with most popular PC flight simulators, including Microsoft Flight Simulator X, IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946, and Lock On: Modern Air Combat X-Plane 9.
