Moza opens pre-orders for revolutionary flight sim gear

Racing game peripheral experts Moza Racing last weekend made an announcement that got flight simmers hot under the summer collar when it unveiled a range of flight sim gear and a move into that space.

With DCS World being so popular and a new IL-2 Korea on the cards there has never been a better time for a company to jump on board as flight sims seem to finding a true renaissance at the moment.

In the 1990s there were hardcore sims everywhere, but there has been a dearth until the last few years, but now it seems players, with the aid of good, well-priced hardware are jumping into virtual cockpits everywhere.

With that in mind, only a few days since the announcement, Moza opened up pre-orders today for the MH16 Flightstick, a Z-Axis module, and the highly-anticipated force-feedback base, the AB9.

At this stage, we have prices for the Flightstick and the Z-Axis but price info for the base was not included in the press release shared with us, so we will update this as soon as we know it.

You can pre-order this initial batch of Moza Flight gear now with shipping expected to start from 31st July.

No word yet on the release of the throttle system and pedals, but as soon as we hear from our friends at Moza we will let you know.
