The premium racing seat and high-quality materials gives this unit a rock solid feel. This racing seat and chassis is one of the lightest weight options available. It weighs about 40 pounds, and with wheels located on the front underside, it is easy to pick up by the chair side and roll stow away when not in use.
You need to buy the wheel and gear shifter separately, which adds up quick, but that’s the reality of purchasing novelty items. This seat is compatible with the Logitech and Thrustmaster sets. Place it in front of your TV or monitor and prepare to immerse yourself with seamless steering, braking, and accelerating.
If you’re one of those people who goes all out and accepts nothing less, you’ll want Volair’s cockpit simulator. It has a triple monitor mount for enhanced realism via a wide viewing angle experience.The racing seat is fully adjustable, and it has all the necessary shelving, foot space, and mounts for your racing gear.
The fully adjustable and articulating mouse and keyboard trays allows this simulator chassis to serve a dual purpose as a flight cockpit. This unit is compatible with nearly all racing pedals, wheels, flight joysticks, and other add-on accessories. For race and flight simmer enthusiasts, Volair’s top product is a dream come true.
