Your Flight Sim Chair

Recommended Posts

Guest Hipper

What type of chair do you use when flying flight sim?I use a typical swivel office chair on casters which of course is most suitable for general PC work but less then perfect for flight sim.The options seem to be a dedicated gaming chair with bits stuck on (not for me), some sort of office chair on legs (I've not seen these) or perhaps a high backed dining chair. I saw these on my internet travels:http://www.gamechairs.com/Racing-Game-Chairs-C32193.htmlUnfortunately they don't seem to be available here in the UK.

Have an old Mitsubishi car seat welded onto a swivel, it leans and is adjustable back and forth. Have placed board under it, and it sticks out right and left where I place my HOTAS. Now, that

I also use an office chair, put I put it on an old yoga mat so that it doesn't roll around.

Yup, regular office chair here (not even leather!). Have it half on carpet to prevent rolling away on short final. :(

Here too a regular office armchair. Hardly rolls on the carpet. Works just fine for me.
