Video | Pro Flight Trainer PUMA TBM

This YouTube movie belong to a comprehensive review published by X-Plained.Com.

Part II of the Pro Flight Trainer PUMA review explains you all about the Toe Brake Modification (TBM) kit for the Pro Flight Trainer PUMA which was reviewed in combination with Laminar Research X-Plane 11 on both Windows and macOS.

During an email conversation I had with a Pro Flight Trainer team member, I was informed that most helicopters have no wheel and therefore no brakes. When the helicopter has no wheels, then the Toe Brake Modification (TBM) kit is not needed, but when you fly occasionally helicopters with wheels like the Sikorsky S-92, S-76, SH-3 Sea King, UH-60 Blackhawk, K-1200 K-MAX, Cowan Simulation 222B, X-Rotors AW139 and many other models I haven’t mentioned or just forgotten, then it is convenient to have the Toe Brake Modification kit mounted/installed on your Pro Flight Trainer PUMA.

This YouTube movie was recorded on an iMac Pro with X-Plane 11.50r3. I used the X-Rotors AW139 and took off nearby Zermatt, Switzerland. It was a scenic trip around the Matterhorn. With Picture-In-Picture I added the way I used the Pro Flight Trainer PUMA with the TBM installed.

Enjoy the movie.

Video | Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls

The review covers all the parts of the Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls yoke and switch unit. It checks out the durability of the product, how it feels and looks like and important too, how to install or configure under Windows 10 and macOS. Although this nice piece of hardware is not only intended for X-Plane, it’s also for FSX, P3D and other flight simulators.

This movie covers a bit about how to install the mounting pad via the 3M Micro-Suction pad or just connecting the pad with the clamps. It shows you also how to connect the base unit to the mounting plate, the LED lighting look and the yoke return from a PITCH or ROLL input.

On purpose we didn’t add a movie that shows me flying and seeing how the yoke behaves. That part we described since that tells and offers more details than what you could see in a movie. Yes, we’re aware that this is our way of thinking.
