The seat is very sturdy and should last for a long time. I have some concerns that I didn't like. 1. No vertical adjustment for the chair. I had to build a platform with casters to get the right level and mobility. 2. The center slide out platform has to be removed to get out of the chair everytime you get up. 3. The seat was not as comfortable as I thought it would be. 3. Too expensive for what you get.

I got this a bit skeptical as i had the go-kart seat based Mushaburui low-rider seat in the past, with severe back and neck pain due to having to spend time almost curled up in the fetal position.

Now, the Playseats features a Recaro-like race seat and 2-D adjustable side plates, and a very wisely designed center plate made of beefy plastic and metal base plate. The sturdy redundant center plate allows for customization. I installed a keyboard holder in front of it.

The side plates have hole patterns that match X-52Pro throttle's, but extra drilling was required due to one of the holes laying over the support.

The left plate has an extra hole that allowed me to install a backlit keymap holder.

Of course power supply and powered 10 port USB hub a must.

I have the whole setup on a 24x46 diamond plate on funrniture sliders, so i can just put it in the corner when we want to use our 110" 24p projection system for movies.

Wop, RoF, DCS:BS, IL-2 here i come!

Everything is nice and tight, my X-52Pro/pedals and TrackIT setup look like they were made for it. One word of caution, resist the temptation to install TrackIR on the rig or base plate if you decide you need one, the problem is vibration into the TiR sensors.

Thank you Playseats! I had to use lock washers through and through to make the rig shock proof, i am one of those fidgety PC aviators, and weigh 250 lbs.

Well made with a recline mechanism which I like. It is a heavy chair so I added wheels for mobility. It is both my regular computer chair and with the attachments my flight simulation play seat. The flight sim attachments are easily installed and removed. I am satisfied. If it came with the wheels I would have rate it 5 stars.

For years I was using an office chair with HOTAS mounts. This solution was just OK - I still do work on my PC and thus a full blown sim pit was out of the question. Of course because it was an office chair, it swiveled when I used the rudder pedals or gas/brake pedals and the HOTAS mounts sat very high...

Thus the search for something better! I ran across this Playseat Flight while Googling solutions to my problem. I wanted to keep my existing desk setup, but needed something more comfortable and sturdy. This fit the bill! It is very well made, sturdy and comfortable for many hours of simming (I weigh 165 lbs and I'm 6ft 1in). I love the fact that you can adjust up/down/forwards/backwards the HOTAS mounts to fit your arm length. Despite how heavy this kit is, it slides reasonably well on carpet making getting in and out easy enough. I also mounted my Logitech Driving Force Pro steering wheel on the center mount and slide it into place when I want to play race sims. I can reach the steering wheel very easily, and it's adjustable also so you can have it closer and lower or farther away and higher. I also purchased the Playseat floor mat as I did not want this to tear up my carpet over years of use, and I must say it adds to the look of the setup as well as function.

If I had one complaint about this seat, it's that you can't raise its height off of the floor. However, this sits high enough for me to comfortably type on my desk's keyboard tray, and in fact is higher than my office chair set to its lowest height. If the height of this kit is a concern, I can assure you it sits higher than other racing chairs on the market.

+Sturdy and functional
- Seat is unnecessarily narrow(14 inches back - 17 inches mid thigh) with handy steel bars to keep you from playing to long. Seat cold be 2 inches wider without interfering with throttle and stick.
- Side plates for throttle and stick are low for Saitek x55 (1.5 - 2 inches higher would be good).
- The price is high.

Great Seat for both driving/racing simulators as well as Flight simulators. The seat is very comfortable and built very sturdy. The seat weighs in at about 60 lbs, so it is a pretty heavy seat and stays put pretty well. The only down side, if there is one, would be the price, but it is worth the cost if you have the extra cash.

Was very excited when unpacking my new flight seat. It looks good and is sturdy enough. After assembly and set up was complete with all my control goodies I discovered a quality issue. The reciever for the center shaft was not jigged correctly and as a result the shaft is pointed off center to the left and the platform is tilted low to the right. It was very obivious when I set my notebook on the platform. It will require some engineering (shiming) to correct the tilt issue but the shaft off center can not be corrected. It looks good setting in front of my 55" Sony but I feel like I'm sitting in a broken airplane.

I have been using this seat for a while now...other than lacking lumbar support, I like the product. But, I wouldn't suggest planning on long hours in the seat because without the lumbar support, your mid-back starts to knot up.
