From simply adding an X-keys Desktop under the monitor to emulate an F-16 ICP, to using the X-keys Matrix board for all the switches in a full blown cockpit, these guys have taken advantage of X-keys versatility and reliability to move one step closer to virtual reality in their flight simulations.
New X-keys Matrix Review in Computer Pilot Magazine
“The Matrix can be a daunting undertaking to an electronics beginner like I was. But it quickly turns into a fun adventure with big rewards at the end. It is great way to get a more useful and realistic cockpit. There is nothing like reaching for the switch instead of watching it being flipped on-screen. At only USD$59.99, I highly recommend it to any cockpit builder.”

Snake 122's Great X-keys Adventure
"I first learned about the X-keys Matrix Board from Flareless. I love my X-keys Matrix so much, that I wrote an article for the February 2006 issue of Computer Pilot Magazine on how others can use the X-keys Matrix Board to add switches to their own cockpits. It was a great adventure with big rewards at the end."

X-keys Review in PC Pilot
“The extent to which this enhances the feeling that you're controlling an aircraft, instead of operating a computer, is surprising; doing away with the mouse, in particular, makes a significant difference.”
