Ditto...

There's no information on what it is needed for a hook up, and how to operate it.

Seems like some more info on the characteristics, how to use it, and why you should get it, have been left out. As well, PRICE.

Price

Post by pete.matejcik » Fri May 16, 2008 10:05 pm

This is the price for the Software from Mindstar Aviation for a G 1000 plug in. We use this together with our Hardware.
But you can use a other one too.

Wow... That is an understatement!
This unit is not really being introduced as a "side panel" as shown for the home user I hope.
This is, I think, more meant for the home extremist flight deck user that wants a "full panel" representation of the actual aircraft being flown. (Think Cessna 182 or 208, and/or a Diamond DA40 full panel installed in your house)

If I am incorrect in this, I can say that the price point is WAY WAY far beyond what the average simmer is going to pay, this module alone would eat half the budget for a very high end home computer based system using the latest bleeding edge parts and accouterments.

On the other hand, I will discuss this product with my other Engineers at work tomorrow. :wink:

I'd be interested in what your cohorts think about this, for home use.

Otherwise, one would have to have one elaborate setup, both in a "full panel" representation, as well the hardware to use it all. Heck, your talking about a $15,000 home cockpit, for a $30 game. :roll:

A big giant no go for home use...
Not even big excitement about using it as a training aid at the office.
