We're delighted to have another review of AuthentiKit, this time by YouTuber OverKill Simulations. See below for his video released yesterday. Of course as a patriot and a huge fan of the P-51D he reviewed our latest flight control for the Mustang, the P-51D throttle including the following features.
- Fully working throttle, prop and mixture lever
- Realistic detents on the mixture lever between Run and Full Rich
- Hydraulic damping on the throttle for a real feeling of mechanical resistance
- Hall sensors throughout for precise and accurate positioning
- Working gunsight grip and PTT button
- High fidelity recreation of the real control based on original drawings
We're really rather proud of this control, especially the highly faithful recreation of the design. Community members Stiggles meticulously recreated the CAD from original drawings and great effort was made to adapt this with the minimum compromises to produce this 3D printable fully functional flight simulation control.
Let's celebrate with a promotional price of $249 - inclusive of all parts
To celebrate this fine flight control I have spent the last month or two twisting a few arms! Firstly I persuaded our friends at SimKitSupplies to reduce their kit of hardware parts from $173 to $150 for US customers - that's inclusive of shipping by the way as well as all the parts you need to make not just the throttle but the PC interface and all the connectors.
Secondly we are now in the fortunate position of having a growing network of AuthentiKit community members around the world who will print at "mate's rates" for other community members who don't (yet?) have a 3D printer. In fact this is something in itself that I think is worthy of celebration. We even have two guys in the US.
So, I'm afraid I did a little more arm twisting and have persuaded these guys to reduce their prices even more for a limited period to help us celebrate the achievement of the P-51D throttle. So the usual recommended selling price of $112 is reduced to just $99 for US customers. P&P will apply to those prices but now hopefully these lightweight printed parts shipping from someone fairly local won't add up to much.
In total then the price for US is $150 + $99 = $249 and this promotional price will last until March 21st 2024, the first day of Spring.
