The OVO-4 takes home flight simulation to a new level
Nov. 15, 2011
Today, I may have found a successor to the custom build. It doesn’t use as many displays, but it does fully enclose the player in an egg-shaped cockpit, and most importantly, it moves, meaning that decent to the runway will feel all the more real.
Serious flight simulation fans are most likely drooling right about now. Inside you’ll find 3 24-inch widescreen displays above an array of cockpit controls, instruments, and pedals. As it’s an enclosed unit, the integrated speaker system should make for a realistic sound experience too. It even has a light intensity system to match the lighting inside the cockpit with the time of day or night you are flying.
If you want one, you had better start saving. The OVO-04 is listed for pre-order in the UK at Firebox for £35,995. That’s around $57,500, or $46,000 before sales tax. Yes, it’s a lot, but if you go home every night and sit playing on a flight sim for hours, it might actually be worth the investment, right?
