Think I'm going to wait for the version where you can do an Immelmann.  :)

(actually that's pretty cool...and the price isn't outrageous).

Pretty cool device! I wonder how noisy it will be though.

They claim it is totally silent...so when you're using it at 2:00 a.m., everybody else in the house can sleep.

Oh man, that is just too cool.  Now that I've gotten rid of the Obutto I am in the market for a new cockpit setup...

Here is another video that shows the seat in use. It appears to be very silent.

No. I'm 6'3" and weigh these days about 270. After consulting with the YAW VR engineers, it seemed like I would stretch the bounds of the chair's capability to support my size. They have a larger, upgraded chair in pre-order phase that will easily support my size and be much more comfortable. It is three times the cost, but still affordable. I'm keeping my eyes on it and will wait for reviews.

Buy a Manurhin MR73 instead!

(I'm very, very close to buying one but I'm worried our idiot PM will obtain a majority in the next election and he'll just turn around and seize it.  Barely holding off until the results of the next vote are in.)
