Table/chair to improve sim experience

Recommended Posts

A few more questions if I may?

 

Do you find the seating position too low? it looks a bit disconcerting being low to the floor!

 

How high is the chair? I have a GF flight deck console which is 18" high. Will i be able to reach the throttles?

 

No problem...

 

The seat is quite low, I'd estimate around 1 ft above the ground. I actually added a couple pieces of a 2x4 to raise the seat (you can see the wood a little bit in the pictures), bringing my chair to ~ 16 inches off the ground.

 

However, I think with an 18" high throttle quadrant, it would be awkward with that chair out of the box (without modification). Give me a couple weeks and I can get you precise measurements (unless another Obutto owner here can provide them). Entire chair is disassembled as I'm getting ready to move (and going through flightsim withdrawals)...

Thanks for your reply. Would increasing the height of the chair put everything out of sync? ie the pedals and screens would have to be height adjusted to i guess?

 

According to this pic it looks like the bottom of the chair is 18cm?

The screens can be raised already. There are three height settings, and in the above picture, they are on the lowest setting. I don't notice much of a change with regards to the pedals.

 

Again, I'd need to get chair reassembled to give you accurate measurements. However, looking at the picture and a tape measure, the 18cm is the height of the frame on which the chair rails sit. So, add another ~16-20 cm for chair frame/padding.

 

Sorry I can't give you more detailed info, as I said, everything is broken down for the move.
