GameCAB Spacer shares the same cockpit modules as our popular flight sim desk but is enhanced with a metalic silver trim on a black melamine coated MDF units, and also has the slide out keyboard/hotas mounting tray fitted as standard. Matching side pods are also available.
As well as these core cockpit components we offer an extensive range of add-on modules which allow you to configure your cockpit just the way that you want it. Of course you don't have to be a space sim enthusiast to make full use of the GameCAB, it makes a fantastic setup for any hard core gamer.
The GameCAB Spacer cockpit setup places the space sim pilot in a much more relaxed and comfortable flying position than a regular desk and chair setup. The chair is lower and slightly more reclined than a regular office / desk chair and the front cockpit / desk section is appropriately lower to match. The desk section has been designed specifically to provide enough space to accommodate a three monitor setup without the need for a special three monitor support bracket, additional mounting brackets are available so that you can add a wide range of gaming controllers, and there is even a range of game specific dash panels available (Game Commanders).
As anyone who has played flight or racing sims using an ordinary desk will testify you can get arm and neck ache after a few hours due to the desk being too high and the sitting position all wrong. The GameCab Spacer has a central section with a slide out shelf which is sized to take a HOTAS joystick and throttle or a compact keyboard, all of which are comfortably placed directly in front of the pilot. This positioning is both more comfortable and realistic than being sat at a standard desk and that really enhances the flying experience for any flight sim enthusiast, and means no more arm and neck ache !
About the Side Pods
There are two variations of the side pod units.
The HOTAS Side Pod has a flat section that is designed to support a joystick or can be used as a mouse pad, the aft of the pod features a slightly angled back padded elbow rest, the reason this is angled back is to let your arm move back fully when pulling back on a joystick. Under the elbow pad is a generous storage compartment.
The EMFS Side Pod is slightly larger than the HOTAS type. The front section rises up to meet the front cockpit desk and has a mounting panel that can take a range of instrument or switch panels. The rear section has a padded elbow rest that hides a large storage compartment, which is big enough to house a standard tower pc, or mid tower pc. (it may not fit some odd shaped or over sized pc's)
You can have the same side pods on each side, or you can mix and match, we find that an EMFS pod on the left and a HOTAS pod on the right makes for a very adaptable setup.
