Heli Kit – Helicopter Training Device

100543_IMG_1FullHere’s an interesting idea for the more rotary-wing inclined among our readership – a collapsible helicopter controls trainer that can be folded away for transport or when not in use.

Newly released by Panamanian company Heli-Kit, the trainer features a long cyclic control (not spring centred), pedals, a collective control and rotary throttle unit on the collective, allowing much more realistic flight than most desktop joysticks can achieve. The cost is €500 + shipping from Panama, so this won’t be for everyone either, but it may interest a few people. You will need an appropriate chair though as the unit doesn’t come with one.
