I build me a HOSAS/HOTAS setup. It comes with two "rails" and I can "fold" it under my desk and hide it. No tools and no unpluging needed.


this was my old setup back in 2018: (link below test forum)



over a year ago i upgraded my setup but didnt found time to post it on the internet... but this weekend finaly... (after watching TheNoobiefier1337 on yt):

Wow, the folding of all this is clearly well done, and well thought. I'll need something like that someday !

@Wintermute is it something you built yourself from scratch or those rails can be found on the net, easy to assemble?

tank you guys!

@vahadar
It's from scratch. I use the black Item-profils (i - profil). You can find it on the internet. It is the same profil type monstertech is using. I started with the monstertech mounts and upgraded them like you see in my post a few years ago (link in first post of this thread). But you also can use the B - Profile (Bosch Profil). Lots of additional stuff like hinges and certain screws are compatible with each other.
