Germany-based manufacturer Snakebyte Group has revealed its latest hardware and brand in the form of Honeycomb Aeronautical.
This new brand will focus on offering consumers the most “authentic, premium flight products available”.
The first announced product from the engineering team is that of the Alpha Flight Control – Yoke & Switch Panel. The panel is made from a steel shaft, while including metal mechanical movement, providing a professional and realistic feel.
Additionally, this new piece of hardware will be compatible with all major flight simulation software, and is designed with genuine aerospace components, utilizing the same mechanics that normally are reserved for FAA-certified approved simulators. The Yoke & Switch Panel will come with a suggested retail price of $169.99.
Nicki Repenning, CEO of Snakebyte USA, said: “We’re excited to introduce a new brand to enthusiasts and aspiring pilots which we believe will stand for unparalleled quality and innovation.”
The brand is composed of real-life pilots and flight engineers located in California, and looks to start shipping its first wave of products in summer 2017.
