Community Article Flight Sim Buyer's Guide 2020 — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Reviews & Buying Guides Flight Sim Buyer's Guide 2020 AlexS admin August 2020 edited May 2021 in Reviews & Buying Guides Written by TSMikeW.  Edited by AlexS, TSTonyV, & CodyG With the launch of Microsoft's newest and highly anticipated rendition of Microsoft Flight Simulator, we at Micro Center decided to go and write up a Flight Sim Buyer's Guide! Flight simulators can provide a truly immersive experience when you get your setup going, but you may not know where to start.   We will be going over various recommendations for equipment, starting from entry-level joysticks and flight sticks all the way up to the high-end offerings. We will also cover information on VR and head-tracking equipment. Some of these products will be available at Micro Center while some may be available at third parties. *Be advised, while we normally sell some of these products, due to COVID-19 and the recent release of Flight Simulator, some products may be temporarily out of stock.  Itinerary  Flight Simulators/Games Entry Level Joysticks Entry Level HOTAS (Hands-On Throttle-And-Stick) Mid-Range HOTAS High-End HOTAS Yokes Throttles Rudder Pedals Other Accessories TrackIR & VR Monitors 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Flight Simulators & Games First things first, we’ll go over some popular flight simulator software since it will be referenced later on in this guide.  Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 - This is Microsoft's latest offering that was released on August 18th, 2020 for PC.  This game is absolutely astonishing and detailed.  Using cloud resources, Flight Simulator's game engine is able to leverage Bing Maps data to access over two petabytes of data on-demand to accurately depict details of anywhere in the world. On the release date, after the 100GB+ download, Community moderator AlexS actually decided to take a short flight in Cessna Citation CJ4 Jet from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Meadows Field in Bakersfield, CA, his home town.  Upon passing the grapevine, he decided to detour from the landing approach just to see his old neighborhood from 8,000 ft.  However, this image does not do justice for what you will truly experience in Flight Simulator. Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) - The go-to military combat simulator right now.  It offers a large variety of modules and simulates a lot of different weapons systems. Falcon 4.0 paired with BMS mod - The most complete F-16 simulator available. Flight Simulator X - Still around as a well known civilian flight sim. X Plane - A more modern alternative to Flight Simulator X and very well done in my opinion. Elite Dangerous - While not a “real world” Flight Simulator, Elite Dangerous is one of the best space simulators on the market.    Star Wars: Squadrons - EA’s latest offering to be released this October will put pilots in the seat of an X-Wing or Tie Fighter as the dogfight for galaxy supremacy. Just to note: These are not the only simulators out there.  There is a wide abundance of flight sim and games available through various platforms like Steam, Epic Games, and EA.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Entry Level Joysticks The entry-level options will get you flying in no time.  However, they will not feature the options of a separate throttle or offer a stupendous amount of extra buttons and switches that can be mapped to other settings. Thrustmaster USB Joystick - If you’re really on the cusp of getting into Flight Sim, Thrustmaster offers one of the most affordable joysticks.   A very simple stick with a side-mounted throttle should get you off the ground in a short matter of time. Logitech Extreme 3D Pro - This flight stick has been around for a while.  It’s basic, but reliable and is a great option for beginners wanting to test the waters.  It includes 12 programmable buttons and an 8-way HAT switch. A HAT switch is a control to allow you to change Point-Of-View (POV) in a virtual world/simulator but can be programmed to do other options depending on what you need it for.   Thrustmaster T-16000M FCS Flight Stick - This is a great entry-level flight stick offering from Thrustmaster, but you may want to consider investing a little more to get the set with the TWCS Throttle as well. Thrustmaster USB Joystick Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Thrustmaster T-16000M FCS 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Entry Level HOTAS HOTAS or Hands-On Throttle-And-Stick is the first step to getting a more authentic feel to flying.  Whether it’s an F-18C Hornet or an Airbus A380 commercial jet, the amount of control is more levied towards the controls alone and less keyboard/mouse. Thrustmaster T-Flight X HOTAS - If you’re venturing into the Hands-On Throttle-And-Stick world, this would be a good starting point.  The range of the detachable throttle is improved over the Extreme 3D Pro and it includes 12 programmable buttons and five programmable axes.  Thrustmaster T-16000M FCS HOTAS - This is a great all-around option and would serve as a good upgrade over the Extreme 3D Pro or T.Flight HOTAS.  It has a good range and includes a paddle fore on the front of the throttle, which can be useful.  It’s not as smooth as some of the high-end HOTAS throttles, but there are mods available to smooth it out if you’re into that sort of thing.  It has 16 programmable buttons and 4 independent axes.  T.Flight HOTAS X T-16000M FCS HOTAS 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Mid-Range HOTAS Logitech X52/X52 Pro - These two flight sticks originally came out under the Saitek brand, and are now owned by Logitech.  It has a wide multitude of programmable buttons and you can easily switch between profiles via the LCD display.  You can change the friction with a knob on the base and can lock the twist stick in case you get rudder pedals as well.  The primary difference between the x52 and Pro is primarily the finish and a second spring for the flight stick to emulate stiffer handling from what I have researched. Logitech X56 - This is another solid Logitech flight stick.  The X56 has a good reputation and is one of the top tier complete solutions you can attain in flight sim.  Logitech quotes that it has over 231 controls and includes toggle switches along the base of the throttle.  It even has RGB if that’s something that interests you!   Logitech X52 Logitech X52 Pro Logitech X56 Images from Logitech.com 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 High-End HOTAS Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog - This is one of the high-end flight sticks available to you, and it’s a replica of the HOTAS system in the A-10C Warthog.  The stick, throttle, and most of the buttons (besides the HAT switches) are metal so it’s build quality overall is very good.   The stick is taken from an F-16C Falcon and the throttle is taken from an F-15E Eagle, so it features a lot of replica controls for aircraft in some of the flight sim games.  Thrustmaster also offers an F-18 Hornet add-on stick that’s easy to swap in. One thing to mention is that it’s not a complete solution as it doesn’t have a twist stick.  You could use a HAT switch, but ideally, you’ll want to invest in a set of rudder pedals.  The TDC cursor isn’t great either, but you can get a replacement from Deltasimelectronics.com that allows you to mod in an Xbox/PlayStation Controller thumb stick to replace it.  If price tags aren’t an issue, then go for the Warthog!

This can clamp onto your desk (or cockpit if you have one) and the system comes with a separate three axis lever throttle! You will probably wish to get some pedals to make yawing (moving side to side) easier, however. (MC) HoneyComb Alpha Flight Yoke - This yoke is produced by HoneyComb, one of the more recent manufacturers to enter the industry of flight sim (est 2015).  This Yoke from HoneyComb comes with an integrated switch panel, plenty of programmable buttons, and even cockpit backlighting.  This unlike the Logitech G Saitek does not come with a throttle however but can be pre-ordered separately on their website. (Non-MC) Logitech G Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System Honeycomb Alpha Flight - Yoke & Switch Panel Images from Logitech.com & FlyHoneyComb.com 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Throttles Thrustmaster TWCS Throttle - This is the throttle you would get with the T-16000M if you purchase it as a set, but also falls along with the Thrustmaster Ecosystem with compatibility for the T.16000M FCS, T.Flight Stick X, & TM  USB Joystick. It’s useful and offers great throttle control. It uses a USB connection. HoneyComb Bravo Throttle Quadrant - Quoted from their website, this is an all-in-one cockpit system featuring a configurable throttle setup, from single-engine general aviation to four-engine commercial aircraft.  This product looks gorgeous and should be a popular choice among Flight Sim enthusiasts when orders begin to ship this fall.  Thrustmaster TWCS Throttle HoneyComb Bravo Throttle Quadrant   Images from Thrustmaster.com & FlyHoneyComb.com 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited May 2021 Rudder Pedals Pedals are a very important factor in constructing your flight sim rig. This adds to the immersion of flying a plane and relieves functions on the joystick and/or throttle that can be mapped for different functions. Thrustmaster TFRP T.Flight Rudder Pedals - These are a basic, functional option that can be very cost-effective.  They even have toe-breaks so you could use them for racing simulators.  Logitech Pro Flight Rudder Pedals - These are a good mid-tier option and the pedals are spaced farther apart than the T.Flight TFRP pedals for better comfort.  These include toe breaks as well, and you can even detach the heel rests if you wish.  A good option to go alongside the Warthog flight system. MFG Crosswind - These pedals are a solid high-end offering.  You can adjust the angle on the pedals and the tension on the toe breaks, and they’re easy to calibrate with the provided software.  These are manufactured and shipped from Croatia, but processing is generally quick for orders. Thrustmaster TPR Pendular Rudder Pedals - These are considered one of the top offerings available, as far as rudder pedals go.  They have an excellent build quality and have a range of adjustments you can make to suit your preferences.  The only downside may be pedal width, but there are mods you can use to extend them.   TFRP T.Flight Pedals Pro Flight Pedals Crosswind Pedals TPR Pendular Pedals Images from Thrustmaster.com, Logitech.com & mfg-sim.com 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Other Accessories Thrustmaster MFD Cougar Pack - This is targeted specifically at BMS and DCS flight combat simulators.  An MFD or Multi-Functional Display is used to display relevant information and operate weapons systems or radar. It’s important to note that this co-aligns with the displays you would see in-game but do not come with mini-displays.  DCS however offers a multi-monitor solution and you can move the digital in-game MFDs to a second monitor and overlay your physical MFD over the monitor like the photo below!  You can get these to work with any aircraft with MFDs with some adjustments.  They’re a lot of fun to play with and if you’re operating a full-fidelity aircraft, it makes it much easier to use the MFDs than with a mouse, even if you don’t go through the trouble of projecting them onto another screen. Logitech Flight Panels - When Logitech acquired Saitek, they acquired some of the best flight sim hardware in the industry.  They offer additional panels like Switch Panels, Radio Panels, and even separate LCD Flight Instrument Panels!  You can find them here on their website. Switch Panel Radio Panel Instrument Panel 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited July 2021 TrackIR & VR If you’ve purchased a majority of the https://www.microcenter.com/product/624291/pimax-vision-8k-x-vr-gaming-headset hardware to fly the plane itself, why stop there?  To further your immersion, you can look in the direction of TrackIR or Virtual Reality (VR)! TrackIR & Head Tracking Software TrackIR 5 - This is the latest iteration of TrackIR from NaturalPoint.  It consists of an IR camera and a reflective clip that you mount into a visor or hat. It exaggerates your movements, e.g. looking 20 degrees right becomes a 140-degree head turn in the game.   Image from Naturalpoint.com It takes some time to get used to, but it does work very well.  It’s cost-effective and it allows you to play a game on a 4K monitor with the ability to look around, which is difficult at this point in VR.   VR Headsets We’ll condense this into a single discussion and provide links to various products and mention them here as opposed to reviewing each one individually.  The main problem with VR is performance versus resolution.  You’re going to take a significant performance hit in VR.   With older games, there are compatibility concerns.  I have played DCS in the Oculus Rift S.  In this title, the resolution is lacking when you’re supposed to be able to see aircraft at 10 nautical miles.  The field of view is also very limiting and makes it hard to keep your eyes on other aircraft in a dogfight.   The Samsung Odyssey+ offers better resolution and I’ve heard is very useful.  Several other headsets work quite well.  The only VR headsets that catch my attention for air-to-air combat sims are the Pimax VR headsets.  Mainly as they offer a significantly better field-of-view than most VR headsets out there, and they have 5K and 8K offerings. For one of the newest titles being Microsoft’s 2020 rendition of Flight Simulator, unless you’re going with a PiMax, it may be better to go with a 4K Monitor and a TrackIR to get a comfortable immersion until VR headsets as a whole make the jump to higher resolutions. Oculus Rift S Samsung Odyssey+ Pimax 8K Images from samsung.com  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited May 2021 Monitors While a 24” or 27” 16:9 monitor will easily get you going, if you wish to see more and your PC can handle wider resolutions, then definitely go with a 21:9 or 32:9 monitor.  Flight simulators are a fantastic experience on Ultra-Wide monitors and if you’re a racing sim enthusiast, it could work doubly for you.  Samsung C49HG90 49” - This 32:9 ratio 1080P, 144hz monitor is the same as having two 27” monitors put together.  It’s a great option for a multitude of games that support 3840x1080 resolutions like Flight Simulator, DCS, and even Grand Theft Auto V (which you can also fly planes in funny enough.)  Samsung C49RG90 49” - This is the 1440p version of the monitor mentioned above.  The refresh rate is a little slower at 120hz but 1440p is very crisp.  MSI Optix MAG341CQ 34” - If 32:9 is a little too much, then a 21:9 ratio monitor like the MSI Optix may be perfect for you.  This monitor only clocks at 100hz for the refresh rate but the 1440p resolution is a nice trade-off for the price you can get this monitor at.   Monitor Features Samsung C49HG90 49” Curved Monitor 1080p 144hz Refresh Rate 1ms Response Time FreeSync 32:9 Aspect Ratio Samsung C49RG90 49" Curved Monitor 1440p 120hz refresh Rate 4ms Response Time FreeSync 32:9 Aspect Ratio MSI Optix MAG341CQ 34" Curved Monitor 1440p 100hz Refresh Rate 8ms Response Time 21:9 Aspect Ratio 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 edited August 2020 Final Thoughts & Other Resources First, please comment on the opinions I’ve expressed in this article and suggest any alternatives or equipment you’ve tested.  There’s a ton of flight sim equipment out there that wasn’t covered in this guide that may interest other flight sim enthusiasts! I do plan to add a guide on the Thrustmaster Cougar MFDs in the future. Thank you again for reading and I hope this guide helps you decide when selecting the right Flight Sim hardware for you!   Be sure to check out the new Microsoft Flight Simulator!  Available on Microsoft Store & Steam.  We'll see you in the skies! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 This article was written by one of our technical support reps, TSMikeW, who has hours upon hours of flight simulation experience in titles such as DCS and Falcon 4.0.  You may have seen him answer technical questions here and there on our Community forum! A lot of the information he has provided for this guide, I have personally put to use.  Before writing this, he's even provided me tips on how I can improve on flying like adding trim to level out your plane prior to landing without struggling on steading the flight stick or tips on dulling the amount of light coming into the room to improve tracking on the TrackIR. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin August 2020 I was very lucky to be able to snag a https://www.microcenter.com/product/468720/thrustmaster-tm-t-16000m-fcs-hotas  I can't wait to try it out for Flight Sim 2020. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin August 2020 Picked up a Logitech X52 at Micro Center and decided to fly back to the Bethel Rd location lol 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, many online events have come to light for the general public. A major one is Racing Simulation or Sim Racing. It’s taken the online world by storm as virtual Grand Prixs and other races featuring real drivers from Formula 1, NASCAR, and other forms of motorsports have gained media attention and continue to thrive despite IRL, or In Real Life, Racing mainly running again in 2021. From NASCAR to Formula 1 to off-road racing, these simulators can provide you the opportunity to virtually drive your favorite vehicles against other drivers on famous tracks like Daytona, Indianapolis, and even Monaco. First, we’ll break down some of the popular racing sims/games and then go over some hardware recommendations you’ll want to look into getting. Take note that racing sim can be a hefty investment but for me personally, I look at it this way: take whatever amount you spend, and if you hit half that number in hours racing, then I say you’ve gotten your money's worth, and even more so if you’re having fun doing it the entire way! IE - I spend $250 on a racing wheel. If I get 125 hrs. of racing in from various racing titles, I say I've gotten more than my money's worth. NOTE: This guide’s hardware recommendations are for sim racing equipment/peripherals only with the assumption that you already have a computer (or gaming console) that can play the racing sim/games of your choice.

They cover almost every form of racing, featuring plenty of officially licensed and real-world backed racing series along with a variety of real laser-scanned tracks. iRacing features various types of oval racing (including NASCAR and IndyCar), various forms of road racing (IMSA, IndyCar, Porsche), dirt oval racing and off-road dirt racing/rally cross. You’ll work your way up through a driving class and safety rating system where every stat is tracked along the way. iRacing also has professionally run championships for thousands of dollars. Maybe you caught one of them on TV in the past year or so? iRacing uses a subscription based model, which keeps the major content updates pumping every three months. iRacing does not allow for any modding content like some sims on PC. iRacing supports VR. Cars: Various // The current offering in Reiza Studios’ Automobilista series is Automobilista 2. The Brazilian developer has been known for some of the best force feedback in a racing sim released for PC. Their current title is in Early Access, but features a variety of cars and tracks from around the world, some which are unique to the title. The second game is currently releasing new content through 2021 and perhaps beyond. Some is free content, the rest is through a Season Pass system, mainly for well-known tracks from around the world. There is currently not any mod support for the 2nd title. The original, Automobilista, does offer modding support but is no longer being updated by the developer. Automobilista 1 does not support VR, Automobilista 2 supports VR. Cars: Various // The original title by Kunoz Simulation is Assetto Corsa available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. While it currently is not receiving updates and has not for a couple years, it has a vast library of cars and tracks both officially released and available in DLC for purchase. It also has a large modding community (PC only) for cars and tracks that is still active today a few years after release. It is a great title to start out with if you are on PC and are interested in road racing and drifting. Assetto Corsa supports VR on PC. Cars: GT3, GT4 // Assetto Corsa Competizione is the official game of the FIA GT3 Championship. It is available on PC, PS4 and XBox One. Developed by Kunoz Simulation, currently it is a strictly a GT racing cars simulator, featuring real-world GT3 and GT4 licensing, with only cars and tracks that you would see those cars racing at in real life. Assetto Corsa Competizione does offer a career mode, as well as an online progression system. Major content additions have come through paid DLC and it receives regular updates. There is no modding support. Assetto Corsa Compitizione supports VR on PC. Cars: Formula 1 // Formula One and Codemasters have partnered over the last decade to create the best experience for F1 Sim Racing. The F1 series is the official video game of Formula One, and is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. While many mods for some of the other games listed here include Formula cars, F1 The Game stands upon the competition for F1 racing. It features all official drivers and tracks from the real life series. F1 2020 is the current title of the series, with F1 2021 sure to release sometime in the 2021 calendar year. The F1 series currently does not support VR on any platform. Cars: Various // The Project Cars most recent entry, Project Cars 3 by Slightly Mad Studios, can be found on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Project Cars features a wide variety of racing experiences from GT3 to IndyCar and Rallycross, which makes it a popular console pick for racing sims. Project Cars 3 released in mid-2020 but is seen as more of an arcade-based game than a racing sim, with most simulator fans sticking to Project Cars 2. The game also has a variety of officially released DLC but does not offer any modding support on PC. Project Cars 1, 2 and 3 all support VR on PC. Cars: Various // rFactor 2 has been out for a few years, but is a very realistic simulator, and is set up to stand the test of time. It offers modding support, as well as officially released and purchasable DLC by its creator Studio 397. Despite being on Steam since 2013, the title receives regular updates and most users rave about its physics engine and force feedback system. rFactor2 does lag behind some of the other sims graphically due to its age, but more than makes up for it in every other area. rFactor 1 does not support VR, rFactor 2 has a beta mode only for VR. Cars: Various // RaceRoom is a free-to-play racing simulation, but most content is available through DLC on PC’s Steam and is home to official race series like DTM, WTCR, the WTCC and ADAC GT Masters. RaceRoom was released back in 2013 and is still receiving regular game and content updates. Cars: Rally // The FIA World Rally Championship’s official video game is the WRC Series.

None of the WRC series titles support VR currently. Cars: Rally // Dirt Rally and Dirt Rally 2.0, much like WRC 8, has official FIA World Rally Championship cars and circuits. Made by Codemasters, Dirt Rally is the original release, but is still preferred by some users as the better of the two titles. Dirt Rally 2.0 features more eSports-like multiplayer than its predecessor, but both Dirt Rally series titles are well received by users online. Dirt Rally and Dirt Rally 2.0 both support VR on PC only. Cars: NASCAR Stock Cars // NASCAR Heat is an officially licensed NASCAR title currently released for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Developed by Monster Games, it is typically a yearly release. At its top level, there is a Pro series for its console versions, but not for PC. NASCAR Heat 5 is the current version of the game, featuring all real NASCAR tracks and drivers along with a career mode. The NASCAR Heat series does not currently support VR on any platform. Cars: Various // PlayStation’s flagship racing title since the days of the original PlayStation has been Gran Turismo. The current title for PS4 - Gran Turismo Sport was the biggest jump for Gran Turismo as a serious racing simulator, mainly focusing on online multiplayer with free updates since the game’s release in 2017. Currently this is the only Gran Turismo released for the PS4.

It also features some unique modes not found in other racing titles, such as a Battle Royale in Forza Horizon 4. The Forza series does not currently support VR on any platform. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Tier 1 - Entry Level Racing Equipment With the entry level setup, we’re only going to focus on two items in particular: the wheel and the pedals. An important factor in the recommendations that were selected is Force Feedback. This feature is an extremely important factor to sim racing as being able to feel tension and traction in the wheel is one of the keys to controlling your turns on the track. Below are some recommendations of wheel/pedal kits I would recommend starting off with and they should include any mounting hardware to attach to your computer desk.   Wheel & Pedals Logitech G920/G29 Driving Force - I’ve personally owned the Logitech G920 and ran it for about 200 hours combined playing F1 2018/2019 and iRacing prior to upgrading. The wheel provides great force feedback using a helical gear system, paddle shifters, and an assortment of buttons you can map different controls to. The pedals are well constructed for the amount you’re paying for (and includes a clutch).   In hindsight, I would’ve much rather gone with the G29 if it was available at the time, as it includes a couple more buttons to play with and revLEDs (these LEDs help you determine when to shift gears). The downside, however, is that the Logitech Driving Force Shifter does not come included.  Thrustmaster T150 - I’ve included this wheel as it’s a little more affordable than the Logitech options and still includes that force feedback using a mixed belt-pulley and gear system that you’ll want in your start to sim racing. The T150’s pedal set does not come with a clutch. Thrustmaster T150 PC/PS3/PS4 Logitech G920 PC/Xbox One Logitech G29 PC/PS4 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Tier 2 - Intermediate Level With the intermediate setup, while the focus is still aimed towards wheel/pedals, we’ll include a couple other goodies that may add some more stabilization and portability for your rig. This was the next step I took myself when I wanted more stabilization and position control for the wheel and pedals.   Wheel & Pedals Thrustmaster TS300 RS Racing Wheel - This (and the GT edition) is probably one of the most popular racing wheels in the market. This is a big jump from the T150 and offers very comparable performance with the Logitech Driving Force wheels. With this setup, you also enter Thrustmaster’s ecosystem of add-ons, which means you can interchange different pedal sets, rims (steering wheels), shifters and more. Note: The RS version does not come with a clutch pedal.   Logitech G920/G29 Driving Force - Yes, this is getting recommended for both entry and intermediate setup. While these wheels do not offer an ecosystem of customization like Thrustmaster, the performance you get is great and the best bang for the buck if you’re just starting to get into racing sim.   Logitech G923 - Logitech's latest and greatest offering is the G923 wheel and pedal set. G923 TRUEFORCE for Xbox Series X & S, Xbox One and PC with next-gen simulation force feedback technology. Now, the game’s physics engine is connected directly to the wheel for true, pure responsiveness. It also features a slightly upgraded brake pedal in its pedal set compared to the G29/G920. Thrustmaster TS300 RS PC/PS3/PS Logitech G920 PC/Xbox One Logitech G29 PC/PS4 Logitech G923 PC/PS4/PS5 Wheel Stand/Mounts Next Level Racing and Arozzi offer a few wheel stands that offer stability, portability and height customization to help you achieve a level of comfort when racing. Going with a wheel stand setup is also convenient in the case that sim racing isn’t the only category of game you play. Next Level Racing options include most of the hardware and tools you’ll need to assemble. Arozzi Velocita Racing Simulator Next Level Racing Wheel Stand LITE Next Level Racing Folding Wheel Stand H-Pattern Shifters While not mandatory for most racing sims, it does provide its advantages and immersion for cars in games that are designed using “H”-pattern shifting. The Logitech Driving Force Shifter is a perfect fit for the G920/G29 wheels as they plug directly in the base of the wheel. Thrustmaster currently offers the TH-8A Add-on shifter as part of their ecosystem with options of directly connecting it to TX wheel bases or using a USB connector as a standalone shifter. Logitech Driving Force ™ Shifter Logitech G920/G29 Support Only Thrustmaster TH-8A Add-On Shifter Thrustmaster TX series compatible OR USB Standalone 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Tier 3 - Enthusiast So if you’re at this point, you’re either a seasoned sim racer, or you’re completely sold into sim racing and you just want to build upon getting the most immersive experience possible. In this section, we’ll be looking into the higher end Thrustmaster gear you can find at Micro Center. These products are made at some of the highest quality for consumer sim racing. Remember that formula I talked about when investing into your equipment? Those who wish to dive into this tier are driving enthusiasts who already spend hours and hours racing and will continue to spend hours and hours doing so. Wheel & Pedals Thrustmaster TS-XW Racer - This wheel and pedal system was made in collaboration between Thrustmaster and SPARCO. Utilizing a brushless servomotor, Motor Cooling Embedded system, and Turbo Power power supply, it sits in the upper echelon of Thrustmaster’s racing lineup as it is competition ready.   Separate Pedal Sets Thrustmaster T-LCM Pedals: Thrustmaster's newest pedal set is a great add on at a great price. This is the first pedal set from Thrustmaster incorporating Load Cell force sensor technology, for ultra-precise braking in racing sims! The positions of the 3 pedals are adjustable in terms of height, inclination and spacing. The included set of 6 springs allows for a multitude of quick adjustments, allowing you to customize the feel on the brake pedal to your liking. If you want true feel, I can't recommend these enough! Shifters/Handbrakes Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter - We touched upon Thrustmaster’s sturdy shifter earlier. Definitely a solid choice for any racing enthusiast, especially if you wish to stay within Thrustmaster’s ecosystem, but also works USB standalone. Thrustmaster TSS Handbrake - If you wanna drift, and you wanna shift. Why not try out the Thrustmaster TSS Handbrake, it is a 2 in 1 device that offers two modes. progressive handbrake and sequential shifter. It is compatible with wheels for PC, Xbox and PS4.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Tier 4 - Pro  Now if you are super serious about sim racing and you want the best of the best, that's what the Pro tier is for. Sadly these products aren't found at our Micro Center stores....yet (maybe one day!), but we can point you in the direction of super high quality gear like Fanatec, Accuforce, Simucube and others. Some of this gear is quite pricey but if it's what the pros recommend, it must be good right? (It is) Perhaps you've seen your favorite Pro driver or Twitch streamer using some of this gear!   Pro level/high-end racing wheels (including direct drive wheels): Fanatec - https://fanatec.com/us-en/steering-wheels/ AccuForce - https://simxperience.com/en-us/products/accessories/accuforcesteering.aspx SimuCube - https://www.simucu.be/sc2sport-direct-drive-wheel-base VRS DirectForce Pro - https://virtualracingschool.com/dfp/   Pro level/high-end racing pedals: Fanatec - https://fanatec.com/us-en/pedals/ Heusinkveld - https://heusinkveld.com/products/sim-pedals/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Racing Cockpits Now, some suggestions simply work for all tiers of sim racing. We’ll start with Racing Cockpits. If you're really serious about sim racing, you'll want some sturdy equipment for any level of wheel and pedal set, especially for anything in the Pro level.   Next Level Racing F-GT Dual Position Simulator - I personally own this and for the price, it’s fairly hard to beat. You get a full seat and dual positions. The wheel mount is open, meaning there’s no pole to can get in the way when you begin to learn how to heel-toe. The pedal plate has plenty of adjustment levels for your comfort. Next Level Racing also offers a number of items that are compatible with this setup as well such as monitor mounts, shifter mount add-on (included) and even Flight Sim mounts.     Next Level Racing F-GT Lite Simulator Cockpit - One of the most portable and affordable setups in the market, this setup can allow adjustment from Formula to GT in minutes. It’s sturdy and offers good stability from the chair to the pedal setup.     Next Level Racing GTtrack Simulator Cockpit - GTtrack is the ultimate cockpit for serious sim racers looking for rigidity, complete adjustability and a true race car seating position. GTtrack supports direct drive wheels and professional pedal sets as well as being compatible with all major wheel and pedals including Thrustmaster, Logitech and Fanatec.   Playseat Evolution - These cockpits are super awesome. Easy to get into but they do use a wheel mount that can hinder heel-toe downshifting. This setup offers one of the best immersions into GT racing, and Playseat does offer a TV Stand extension to use with this beast of a chair. Next Level Racing F-GT Dual Position Simulator Next Level Racing F-GT Lite Simulator Next Level Racing GTtrack Simulator Cockpit Playseat Evolution - Black Playseat Evolution HQ Alcantara Racing Chairs if a full out sim rig isn't for you, why not look over one of the Inland Gaming Chairs available on Amazon? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Monitors & Stands FOV, or Field Of View, plays another key factor in how you may perform on the grid. Having plenty of monitor space plays a huge part building your advantage in races. There are calculations that you can use to help determine the correct FOV for whichever sim you are playing, but we’ll touch upon that later. This guide will center mainly around monitors and not televisions. Triple Monitor or One Ultra-Widescreen? This all comes down to personal preference. While you can take the advantage of a triple monitor or TV setup and vastly expand your FOV, having one ultra-widescreen provides wide FOV, easier tuning with cable management and video settings, and can end up being more cost efficient in the long run. We’ll provide recommendations for both Triple Monitors and Ultra-Widescreens. Triple Monitors We’re including some curved models but be advised that they typically require a little more work to get them to line up properly, depending on the mount you’re using. In the end, however, you’ll find yourself with a clean setup with wide FOV. These models will also have fairly thin bezels, 144hz or more refresh rates, and VESA compatibility to add to monitor mounts. Flat Monitor Options ASUS VG248QG 24” 1080p - 144hz BenQ Zowie XL2411P 24” 1080p - 144hz Acer Nitro VG270 1080p - 144hz Curved Monitor Options MSI Optix MAG241MVC 23.6” Freesync - 1080p - 144hz MSI Optix MAG272CR 27” Freesync - 1080p - 165hz Samsung C32JG56 32” WQHD Freesync - 1440p - 144hz Single Ultrawide Monitor Options Ultrawide is the way to go, in my opinion. You get amazing FOV, less cable/settings management than multiple monitors, and it only requires one power cable and video cable. My colleague and I both use the Samsung C49HG90 49” Ultrawide but I do wish I spent the extra bones to get the 1440p version. Check out some of the 21:9 or 32:9 recommendations below! Samsung C49HG90 49” *Author’s Choice* Curved Monitor 1080p 144hz Refresh Rate 1ms Response Time FreeSync 32:9 Aspect Ratio ASUS XG49VQ 49” Curved Monitor 1080p 144hz refresh Rate 4ms Response Time FreeSync 32:9 Aspect Ratio *One of the cheapest 49” monitors in the market Acer Predator X34 Pbmiphzx 34” Curved Monitor 1440p 120hz Refresh Rate 4ms Response Time G-Sync 21:9 Aspect Ratio Samsung C49RG90 49” Curved Monitor 1440p 120hz Refresh Rate 4ms Response Time FreeSync 32:9 Aspect Ratio Monitor Mounts There’s a plethora of different brands and monitor mounts but we’ll try to keep it narrowed down, based on the racing cockpits introduced earlier. The Next Level Racing Monitor Stand GT is proprietary to the F-GT Cockpit but offers either triple or single monitor support. Next Level Racing also offers a stand alone triple monitor stand that is aimed more towards larger monitors that are greater than 32” or TVs. Next Level Racing Monitor Stand GT Note: This is only compatible with the NextLevelRacing F-GT Simulator Cockpit.   Supports 3 screens up to 27” or 1 screen up to 65” Next Level Racing Triple Monitor Stand Triple Screens supported from 32” - 65” Plenty of adjustment available 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited July 2021 Virtual Reality One of the most unique ways to experience sim racing would be use of virtual reality, which is heavily supported in most major PC racing titles. If monitors aren’t your thing and you can handle VR, it is a truly unique way to get the feeling of being inside the car while you race. The main downside is that some users will experience motion sickness at high speeds while racing compared to racing on a monitor, but if you know for certain you don’t have these issues then it can be a viable option for you.    “Entry Level” VR Headsets  The headsets listed here are solid VR headsets for their price. If you were looking to just race in VR and do no other VR gaming, these are great choices. Out of these for overall use, the Rift S and Quest would win out for its compatibility and easy-to-use software for all VR titles. Oculus Rift S The Rift S requires no external cameras/sensors. Requires the easy to use Oculus software for setup. Resolution 2560×1440 (1280×1440 per eye) Screen Type LCD Refresh Rate 80Hz Field of View Approx. 115° Ports Required USB and DisplayPort Oculus Quest 2 w/ Link Cable Resolution 1832 x 1920 Refresh Rate 75 Hz Field of View Approx. 95° No external cameras Requires Oculus Link or equivalent cable for PC connection "Enthusiast" VR Headsets Pimax 8K 7680 x 2160 (3840 x 2160 per eye) 90 Hz Refresh Rate Field of View 200° Ports Required: USB and DisplayPort Minimum Graphics 6GB of Video RAM - Minimums would be NVIDIA 2060 / AMD RX 5700 Other "Enthusiast" VR Headsets These headsets are for those who are committed to racing and gaming in VR. At the time of writing, we do not carry these products here at Micro Center, but we would recommend looking into the Valve Index and HP Reverb for ultimate image quality and VR tech-goodness. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook 2ndPlaceRacer ✭ April 2021 edited April 2021 Racing Sim Builder While Micro Center offers a good amount of racing sim hardware, some of the items you’ve seen on this guide may only be available directly from the manufacturer or by other outlets. However, you can use the Racing Sim Builder by clicking the link here! Now this is all equipment I have put together and think is good depending what you're willing to spend, but the market is constantly changing and new things are coming out all the time.

I'm fairly new to the racing sim scene (recently started playing F1 2018/2019) and I've been interested to see different racer setups!  I recently decided to go with a Logitech G920 Driving Force w/ pedals and I have to say, I'm definitely hooked on racing now.  I'm trying to get more and more hours in before I decide to invest in a Racing Rig to mount my wheel and pedals on, but if you have suggestions or photos of your rig, I'd love to see them!   Let's race sometime!  I'll try to get photos of my current setup tomorrow!  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin April 2020 No pictures but I have a https://www.microcenter.com/product/480793/samsung-c49hg90-49-dfhd-144hz-hdmi-dp-freesync-hdr-curved-led-gaming-monitor specifically for racing on.

Vader is an Intel 10900K 5.4ghz behemoth boasting 64gb of G.Skill Ripjaws overclocked to 4000mhz cl15, an ASUS Strix OC 2080ti with a 1060 daughter card for more displays, 50tb of HDD disk space, 4tb of Samsung Evo powered NVME goodness, and more monitors than most people can handle - 7 (65in Oled, 2 LG 34in, 1 Acer 38in, and 4 ASUS 22in touchscreens). Audio for this machine is power by a Matrix Audio X-Sabre Pro MQA DAC that feeds a Monoprice 887 amp leading to the reference level Sennheiser HD800S with seat attached bass shakers and a Jet Seat for rumble immersion. Input devices are led by an iKBC MF87 keyboard, Corsair m65 mouse, 3 Elgato Stream Decks - Mini, Default, and XL, a Real Simulator joystick, Thrustmaster TPR pedals, Winwing Throttle, 2 DSD button boxes, and a TrackIR. This whole machine is a never ending upgrading monster. I always tell my wife that Ill be done after the next upgrade, but low and behold there is always one more over the next horizon. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Enamelized Va ✭ September 2020 Nice battle station and RIG setup you've got there!!

Snapshot included: I think my selections are a good and solid setup for a home racer like myself. Love Logitech products but I feel the PXN V9 would be a better fit for my driving style. Have always wanted a home setup and winning the PXN V9 setup would be a great start! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Crossfire ✭ April 20 I have been wanting to get into iRacing. Never given it a shot but heard good thins about the Logitech set up! I stream video games on twitch and believe my viewers would enjoy iRacing streams! I have to be around longer to post links so I shared a screenshot instead! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BURNHAMMER ✭ April 20 Won't let me post links yet, so heres this screenshot. see attached screenshot. (On mobile though so it won't let me show the add ons   ) Go big or go home right? Pedals were out but other than that I made sure to select an adjustable rig. I'd want one that can be enjoyed by my shortie girlfriend and my tall self. Lol.  Also it wouldn't let me add the cup holder but I'd get that too! Stay hydrated of course! I'd definitely pair this with a 3 monitor setup or a super ultra wide.  Definitely a dream setup with this price tag but would be super awesome some day! Works for everyone and would last forever with care.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook KLaymon ✭✭ April 20 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/racing-sim-builder.aspx?load=a36f75f2-a610-49f3-8586-1e6dcc841d28 F1 is my racing of choice. What better seat than the F-GT Lite. Get that low-to-the-ground feel of F1. Logitech makes solid driving components, especially from what I've seen with the G923 series with the non-linear brake pedal. The G502 mouse is a solid performer for FPS, so why not use it on a sim? Overall, I think this is a good build that doesn't break the bank, but has some really nice components. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Rymidal ✭ April 21      The reason why I chose the parts I did is because I was trying to find a balance between performance and price. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook gqrbqge Illinois ✭ April 21 www.microcenter.com/site/content/racing-sim-builder.aspx?load=8d900d9b-b2fd-4357-bac2-907148fb7d7b Here is the Link ^ In my racing simulator, I went for the casual gamer who played racing games 2-3 times a week but also plays other games. I started off with the smaller chair due to me not having enough room for the larger one. First I chose the PXN V9 Steering Wheel since it's not too high of a price and it looks great in my opinion. Now I chose the Thrustmaster TH-8A Shifter, I choose it for 2 reasons, 1 it looks so cool and it seems more realistic 2 the one that comes with the steering wheel looks kinda ugly in my opinion. Third, the ASUS monitors I've had amazing lunch on they always have been nicely packaged and always have good customer support so I chose the ASUS over the AOC Brands. For the Keyboard and mouse I choose the Steel Series Keyboard due to my friend having it and it works so nice I wish that I would buy one soon, and the mouse I have an older gen of this mouse and I absolutely would buy a new one soon. The speakers don't really matter to me as I'm mostly gonna wear a headset for a better experience. Overall These choices suit me the best due to the looks and the cost of all the items I hope this wasn't too long to read and have a nice day! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Rano_M5 ✭ April 21 Always wanted to get a racing sim setup after seeing a couple of them in person and how fun they can be.  Chose the seating that looked atleast comfortable. For the steering wheel and pedal combo I chose thrust master after hearing good things minus the pricing lol. And paired that with a Logitech shifter as I have seen this combo a lot on other setups. Steel series keyboard to match with the steel series headset I have at home. Razer mouse because “Razer”. 27 inch asus monitor for that 2k experience. Lastly speakers I just went with redragon because they looked better.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bobbyk95 ✭ April 22 Here is the setup I would have.

LandShark admin September 2020 edited May 2021 in Reviews & Buying Guides A long time ago in a galaxy far away… Except it’s right here and now! Star Wars: Squadrons Is a space combat game set in the Star Wars universe developed by Motive Studios and published by Electronic Arts. It promises immersive combat set amongst the stars. You’ll have your option of eight different spacecraft. Two of each class: Fighter, Bomber, Support, and Interceptor. They are each unique in their strengths and weaknesses consistent in their main control systems. Each ship has three power management systems that you’ll need to balance to be successful in combat. Your Weapons, Engines, and Shields. You can adjust the power that you give to these systems individually for boosts to the respective system or you can play with each system balanced. That being said, you’ll have the option of very intense combat experience with a very busy cockpit tweaking each system to have the greatest effectiveness in your battles. Yet, it isn’t a requirement, the other option is more balanced or relaxed combat. You choose your experience! For more information about the in-game piloting experience, check here. Motive has confirmed support of HOTAS and VR day one from launch, which is great because as we mentioned above there is a lot of opportunity for granular control. Gearing up for Star Wars: Squadrons? Motive, the developers of Squadrons, suggests that we use a controller or gamepad instead of a keyboard to better experience the game as they intended. Here are a few varied recommendations for you.  Gamepads Logitech Gamepad F310   Thrustmaster GP XID Pro Gamepad Bionik Vulkan Advanced Multi-Platform Wireless Controller Microsoft Xbox Controller Is a game controller not for you? We've got you covered, check out our Flight Sim Buying Guide where you can find our recommendations for Joysticks and HOTAS Now for the big questions…         Which side do you sit with? What starship will you pilot? Are you playing any other space sims? Will you be flying in VR? What's your favorite map? Fleet Battle or Deathmatch?

I'm sure this game will swap sides between matches from Rebels to Imperial but REBEL ALLIANCE ALL THE WAY! What starship will you pilot? Looking forward to some classic T-65 X-Wing Starfighter action. Are you playing any other space sims? I've been currently playing Elite: Dangerous for the last couple months, but it'll be nice to play a game that's pure dog fighting with some objective based gameplay. Will you be flying in VR? I'm definitely goin to check out the VR mode in this with the Oculus Rift S but I also have a 21:9 monitor I want to check this game out with. What's your favorite map? ?? :l idk  Fleet Battle or Deathmatch? Fleet Battle has my eye so far, can't wait to play it after work lol 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Err0h ✭✭✭✭✭ October 2020 edited October 2020 So I picked up one of the Bionik Vulcan controllers on Squadrons launch day and I'll have to say, I'm extremely impressed with the build quality of it.  This coming from someone who hasn't used a controller in years.  The mapping about identical to the Xbox Elite controller.  I'm not sure if the XBE controller's inner handle buttons are separate functioning, but the Bionik Vulcan offers quick button mapping for in the inner handles to be mapped to A,B,X,Y or the L1, L2, L3/R1, R2, R3 buttons.  This has been extremely helpful as I am able to map those buttons to commonly used controls like "Cycle Targets" or "Countermeasures" without having to remove my thumbs from the flight controls.   On day 2 of Squadrons, I focused more towards using the Logitech Saitek X56 HOTAS.  Combat with a HOTAS feels super advantageous because of three things. Throttle control, smoother aiming, and the flight stick.  The flight stick can manage to have all axes programmed into it (pitch, roll, yaw) and lead to smoother aiming.  With a controller, you have to use the up/down on the left thumb stick to control your throttle and in the midst of chaos, this can be tricky to track your target while making sure your throttle is in the correct position (50% provides the best balance between speed and turning).  With the HOTAS throttle, there is almost no worry of managing this as the position of your throttle matches the in-game throttle.   Mapping a HOTAS with this game is like any other.  It takes time to figure out the best way to figure your controls.  However, I did learn that some of the controls like DRIFTING have been finicky with a HOTAS as there was a part in the singleplayer mission that I could not complete since I was unable to drift properly.  I swapped to a controller and there was no issue.   I have since been playing with the Bionik controller for Day 3 and getting accustomed to Squadrons' power management system and it's all starting to become easier and easier.  I'll probably try the HOTAS again at some time but I think I'll keep it stowed for Elite: Dangerous on a rainy day. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin October 2020 Hmm. Very interesting, good to hear that you found the additional keybinds on the back of the controller to be beneficial. It's one of the defining reasons that we included the Vulkan in our recommendations. Have you felt that it's given you an edge over the competition? 😁 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin October 2020 edited October 2020 Friendly reminder that Xbox One controllers are natively supported on Windows 10! If you have the bluetooth model you can connect them that way, or just plug them in directly with a USB cable with no issues.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Err0h ✭✭✭✭✭ October 2020 LandShark said: Hmm.

Have you felt that it's given you an edge over the competition? 😁 So update, I've taken extra time to mapping my binds to the Logitech X56 and the HOTAS is 100% superior over a controller, especially with the recent update to address global deadzones which benefits HOTAS users.  I had a high score of 16 kills in a dogfight match.  Also, ION missiles = OP. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Playing this with my new Quest 2 was amazing.
