What a very pleasant surprise to receive a platinum award from PC Pilot in their latest September/October 2021 issue. Editor Derek Davies gave our Spitfire MkIX flight controls a thorough going over for a number of weeks, not just flying with the controls but also assembling from kit form.
You’ll need to read the issue for full details but Derek was very complimentary about the feel of the stick, especially flown with the Flying Iron Simulations Spitfire MkIX. The overall score he awarded was 96% which is very rewarding, especially after the hundreds of hours that went into designing these parts.
A big thank you to Reuben Tighe at www.simkitsupplies.com too. My own printer has been flat out prototyping new controls so Reuben kindly printed the parts that we sent to Derek and sponsored the cost of the hardware components.
This is what Derek had to say about these flight controls in summary.
