Honeycomb™ Aeronautical, a leader in professional-grade flight simulation hardware and a snakebyte® brand, announced today that they are teaming with MAINGEAR®, innovators in custom PC’s, to deliver Honeycomb by MAINGEAR, a desktop PC built specifically for flight simulation.

The Honeycomb by MAINGEAR has been built to cope with the demands of a complex flight sim installation, including triple-monitor support and built-in USB hub to support the requirement of connecting multiple components including yoke, throttle, rudder pedals and panels. Optimized for the popular X-Plane11, which comes pre-installed with the PC, Honeycomb by MAINGEAR ensures a frustration-free, plug-and-play experience.

The first products in the range include the Yoke and Switch Panel and the Bravo Throttle System with Auto Pilot & Annunciation Panel, both of which are high-end modular components which integrate seamlessly with other brands of flight simulation hardware, offering a simple way for enthusiasts to enhance their system without worrying about compatibility issues.

(…)Honeycomb Aeronautical creates professional grade simulation hardware,(…)”

Forgive me my language but it sounds like a marketing bullshit and potential customers must be warned. You wrote the article long before Honeycomb’s products were ready and you didn’t have it in your own hands before writing this article.
Moreover, their yoke is now in hands of some flight simulation media outlets and you can be sure it won’t have (unfortunately) positive reviews. The same poor quality as Saitek (now Logitech) yoke. With professionalism their yoke has nothing to do. If you would like to go professional, at this moment you will have to spend over 1000 euro just on yoke, niot 100 or 200 euro. There is no high quality entry-price-level yokes unfortunately.

Hello, thank you for your comment but this isn’t an opinion piece. This is a news article reporting on the announcement of the planned release of the equipment. There are no opinions in the article, only facts. Not to be confused with reviews which would state whether we though the products were good or not.

Hi Nick,

Slightly out of your budget, but this is the cheapest recommended PC we could find for playing Flight Sims: https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/view-item/Fsx-700-PC-/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA5dPuBRCrARIsAJL7oeg8je9eE03FMxZoSxRwvvl_ESmEXVxZwvtQrMD1foZGIyaxLbpx4wgaAgkiEALw_wcB

You could maybe look at the specs, and find a similar one that is second hand for a lower price. Or see if you can get the parts separately and self build.

Hope that helps!
