Logitech Launches its First Force-Feedback Flight Sim Controller


All that's missing from Logitech's newest flight simulation controller is a cockpit. The Flight System G940, as it's being dubbed , is the company's first ever force-feedback flight sim peripheral and has enough pieces to keep hardcore flight sim fans busy, and those new to the genre thoroughly overwhelmed. And that's just fine with Logitech.

"There's nothing ordinary about a G-series gaming peripheral, and the G940 is no different," said Ruben Mookerjee , Logitech's director or product marketing for gaming. "We approached this project with the goal of redefining the flight sim experience. Whether you're flying an A380, an F/A-18 Hornet, or a Comanche helicopter, when you want to feel the wind on your winds, control engines together, or independently or master tricky maneuvers, the G940 behaves and feels like the real thing -- from takeoff to landing."

The three-component G940 comes with a force feedback joystick and dual throttle and rudder pedals, along with no less than 250 programmable button options integrated in a fully featured Hands On Throttle-and-Stick (HOTAS) design.

Logitech says its G940 will start shipping in September with an MSRP set for $299.
