Default FLYKIT - the first mobile RC ground control station for FPV

FLYKIT is a mobile set of steering devices which can be used to control a drone, RC plane or flight simulator. The kit includes control stick, pedals, thrust lever and pilot seat. With such devices you can control as in an airplane or helicopter, instead of a fingertips control.

FLYKIT can be connected to the most of transmitters via trainer port or you can use it with an RC transmitter module. The whole set fits to a special bag and can be taken wherever you plan to fly. Aluminum construction and hall effect sensors will ensure the longevity. Controller is compatible with latest OpenTx and Ersky9x firmware.

We are currently testing this product and are about to start production of the first batch, but before that wed like to know your opinion on our design, especially ergonomics and usability of buttons and potentiometers. The photo presents our current design.

Above the LCD, starting from the left:
  • ID 0/1/2 3-pos toggle switch,
  • TRAINER dual-stable button,
  • GEAR 2-pos toggle switch,
  • 6-pos rotating switch,
  • AIL dual rate 2-pos toggle switch,
  • ELV dual rate 2-pos toggle switch,
  • RUD dual rate 2-pos toggle switch,
Near the trim buttons there will be a joystick - 2 axis with a push-button (e.g. for a gimbal control), and a sliding potentiometer 100mm long placed on the side of thrust-lever enclosure (e.g. air-brakes or flaps). Besides that, we have put a two push-buttons on the thrust lever, and one on the control stick.
Do you think that such arrangement of buttons and potentiometers is good enough ? Maybe you would like to move or replace a button/potentiometer e.g. sliding potentiometer or dual rate switches? Wed be very glad to hear your opinions.
