REPLICA SPITFIRE SIM PIT ACCESSORIES

Chassis unit

Chassis unit

The Spitfire Histories replica Spitfire Chassis Control Unit reproduces the lever movement of the original unit with its top and bottom gates. The status window shows « UP » temporarily to show that the mechanism is in operation when moving the lever upwards and temporarily « DOWN » when it is moving downwards. At all other times is shows "IDLE", as in the real aircraft.

Please note that this unit is only sold as an option with the control column set, because it is normally connected to the USB controller that is housed in its base. It can of course be connected to any proprietary game controller.

 

 

Please also note that the customer needs to provide a suitable support panel for this unit on the right hand

side of the seat. In time when we have developed other controls for the right hand side of the cockpit we will offer a curved panel as a support.

Two step rudder pedals

Two step rudder pedals

In later versions of the Spitfire two step rudder pedals were introduced to raise pilots feet and thus help delay the onset of blacking out due to pulling "g's" in tight turns.

The SH model faithfully replicates the original but they are more designed for show, as when sitting in a simulator at home virtual pilots never pull more than 1 g.! So we don't recommend that you use the upper rungs.

The base can be adapted to fit most commercially available rudder pedal sets, by either replacing the pedals supplied or by fixing the SH units to existing foot rests. These items are made according to measurements supplied by the customer.

It is worth noting that these pedals are not recommended for pedal sets that use toe brakes, unless this function can be inhibited in the rudder pedal set.

Auxiliary tank cock & jettison handle

Auxiliary tank cock & jettison handle

The SH auxilliary fuel tank cock and jettison handle works just like in the real aircraft. When the fuel cock lever is pulled aft towards the ON position a mechanical lock inhibits operation of the jettison handle. This handle is only freed when the fuel cock lever is in its fully forward OFF position. The SH unit hides two micro pushbuttons operated by cams that should be assigned to the toggle function in flight simulator control panels. The unit should be mounted on the bottom traverse of frame 9 just to the right of the pilot seat

 

The unit is currently being tested and will be offered for purchase towards the end of 2020.

This unit can be wired up to any proprietary game controller.
