For the record, I thought about moving this discussion to a new thread since we're not really discussing the article. However...we are discussing the Obutto and Chris has expressed interest in our opinions for flight simming, so I'll continue unless The Management speaks up.
Please carry on here Teej! There is a benefit in keeping the Obutto info inside this one thread.
Two cents. Whenever someone looks at a picture how someone else setup their Obutto, keep in mind it is set for them and you can set it up completely differently. Between the seat side rail holes to attach outboard brackets, the fore/aft and seat angle, the mount for the wheel/hub/table, the keyboard/mouse tray, the height of the monitor stand, etc. etc. etc. its almost impossible (IMO!) not to get a setting that works. The one wart is the wider pedals for flight, and as indicated previously in here, Chris is aware of it and maybe he is noodling a solution.
BTW, with the Obutto, you can be setup and running in 2 hours... or you may NEVER get done if you enjoy messing with it and trying new ideas, brackets...
