snakebyte® group, leading innovators of consumer electronics hardware, announced today Honeycomb Aeronautical, a new brand of flight simulation hardware. With the first products expected to ship Summer 2017, the range Is designed to offer the most authentic, premium flight products available, suitable not only for enthusiasts but also for flight students training for a pilot license.
Designed and developed by pilots and flight engineers in California, USA, Honeycomb Aeronautical has engineered the range using genuine aerospace components and the same internal mechanics used in premium certified simulators approved by the FAA for flight training use.
Each product in the range is designed to function alone or can be combined with other products in the Honeycomb range to function as a full cockpit simulation. In addition, Honeycomb have designed their range to work alongside components from other flight simulation manufacturers, negating the need to begin building their cockpit anew.

Manufactured from aerospace grade components, the Yoke & Switch Panel is a multi-purpose Yoke & Switch Panel, compatible with all major flight simulation software. All steel shaft with metal mechanical movement provides a professional feel and exceptional strength, and the full 180° yoke movement is ideal for flight of any craft. The Yoke & Switch Panel features four buttons, four two-way switches & one, eight-way hat switch, offering an avionics switch panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches. Compatible with PC and Mac, the Yoke & Switch Panel includes a mounting bracket compatible with Honeycomb panels as well as products from other flight simulation manufacturers.
