Press release:

San Diego, CA – August 29th, 2017 – snakebyte® group, leading innovators of consumer electronics hardware, announced today the Bravo Throttle System with Auto Pilot & Annunciation Panel, a new high-end modular component designed for the flight simulation community and being released under the companies Honeycomb Aeronautical™ brand.




Complementing the previously announced Yoke & Switch Panel, the new Bravo Throttle System integrates seamlessly with other brands of flight simulation hardware, offering a simple way for enthusiasts to enhance their system without worrying about compatibility issues.


The Bravo Throttle System has been designed to offer an authentic engine management and avionics system for all forms of aviation. Users can configure the throttle quadrant to virtually any type of aircraft, by configuring it to either single-engine general aviation, multi-engine general aviation, two-engine commercial aviation or four-engine commercial, both with reverse thrusters as well as spoilers and flaps via the included handle kit.


In addition to the throttle configurations, the Bravo Throttle System features an impressive array of flight controls. Users can utilize the Auto Pilot for cross country flights as well as the Annunciation Panel with 14 warning lights, drawing real-time data from the flight simulation software. The integrated gear lever comes complete with indicator lights, and the Boring® 737 style trim wheel, flap toggle controls and an additional seven programmable switches provide aspiring pilots with a plethora of controls at their fingertips. 


We’re in the final development stages of the earlier announced Alpha Flight Controls with expected launch in Q4 2017 and plan for the the Bravo Throttle Quadrant to be available shortly after.” Designed and developed by pilots and flight engineers in California, USA, Honeycomb Aeronautical has engineered its range using genuine aerospace components and the same internal mechanics used in premium certified simulators approved by the FAA for flight training use.

Lot of functions in there for $200 :thum:. If I can't get my Saitek TQs going again, I might well be interested in that . . .

I wonder where you would mount it with that trim wheel protruding so much? A centre console I guess.

Dunno. There are zero shots of it in situ . . .

The yoke said "Saitek mounting compatible", which had me slightly worried (any use of the "S" word has me worried!)
