Expand your cockpit
Just fixing it with two screws at the bottom of your main device, connect the usb and let’s play.
Compatible with all major flight simulation titles and most cockpit setups, the b-explorer improves the control of your ship or aircraft.
Full metal body
The whole structure is made of aluminum and powder coated.
6 Axes, 4 double Toggle Switches and 8 extra Buttons
b-explorer offers 6 axis (2 potentiometers and 4 sliders), 4 toggles (3-way momentary toggle switch) and 8 buttons (one of them with a clear cover), without the need of a big cockpit.
