Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

The Perfect Addon

Recommended Posts

One of the products the lab deep in our basement is working on. The first prototypes now work but we got to find a nice way to refill the thing. Estimated price is $24.95 and it should be available a year from now. When you plug it into your USB port it will detect when a simulator is running and will start to spread the lovely smell of half burned avgas.

It´s not a joke.

I have a prototype here.

Smells good, but now my house is gone up in smoke.

Better wait for the final production model.

If the girlfriend/wife knocks it out while cleaning, does that constitute a "bird strike"? :D

(Not being sexist, slang doesn't work otherwise ;))

Have you decided to sell a legal form of "Drug sniffing" (like hair spray) to pay the bills ... ??? ? :P

They must be real hard up for cash; after MS' ACES went bust. :lol:

PS: Nice one Nick! LMAO ;)

Does it actually make noise or just do odor? Just curious; not really interested.

why should it be dangerous? it isn't the real avgas. I guess it's only a chemical smelling like the half burned avgas

Burned Jet A1 would be better!

Isn't it dangerous to smell such burned avgas??? How much capacity have these USB's; How long does they linger??

Yes but the smell only stays around on April 1st, so the danger is not too big.

I supose the next thing you'll be saying is that this project might never get completed? Mind you, from some of the comments above, I wouldn't mind betting that some people have been getting affected by the dodgy levels of smell produced during early beta testing :lol:

All you need is a flame resistant container, couple drops of Jet-A, and some matches. :lol:

Seriously, folks... don't try this for real unless you're looking to rebuild your house.

although this was an April 1st joke. Those would be some ultra cool USB storage devices. The design is great :)

Ditch the Avgas and release them as usb storage devices :D

Move to a home near an airport...

Nice one Mathijs! Could be a good device to really go and invent. Paraffin wax might do the trick - if you don't mind imagining the "Coconut Airways" home base...

Dang!! Thought it might be real for a minute there!!

Would be great as a USB memory stick anyway!

Best regards,

Robin.
