FMS Flight Motion Simulator Inc.'s DreamFlyer is, in its most basic form, a flight simulation controller. However, it's more than just a joystick. The DreamFlyer is a full motion flight simulator controller that you sit in to control your flight simulation game. It comes with a full joystick, complete with combat controls, a hand throttle with more buttons and a thumb switch mouse, plus foot pedals. Making turns is as simple as tilting the joystick or, if you prefer, yourself in whatever direction you're looking to go. When you make your turn, the DreamFlyer and monitor turn with you, giving the sensation of flight. You can even attach an LCD monitor, or three, to the DreamFlyer so you can have a fuller experience.
DreamFlyer brings the experience of flying to a whole different level. It brings full motion into the picture and allows the user to interact with the simulation software - Microsoft's Flight Simulator for example, using the full system, with the joystick, the pedals, the full surround sound system (option), and you can fly any aircraft, any time, in any weather condition. Another benefit that the DreamFlyer has over other flight simulators is that it doesn't use any motors, just two USB cables for the controls, which means that it's virtually maintenance free - not to mention easy to set up. The lack of motors and simple build structure also bring down the cost by a considerable amount. You can find out more about the DreamFlyer at www.mydreamflyer.com.
