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):

tank you guys!

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.

SO GLORIOUS. So damn clean too, for a desk build, not a cockpit. How does SC like the super ultra mega uber wide screen? like i need a little more than 21:9 but the 32:9 ones in flight sim and sim racing are just a little too big, triples is the sweet spot for me but there are so many downsize to triples these days.

This is an amazing build. I can't decide between desk or chair mounts myself. But nothing like this!
