Turtle Beach VelocityOne Flight Universal Flight Control System Review

Last updated:

Rumors of an approaching flight sim controller quickly spread around the WePC office. We are no stranger to top technology, ranging from huge gaming screens like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 to haptic gaming headsets like the Razer Kraken V3 Pro HyperSense. Despite this, we have never had a full-on flight sim control system in the house. Fortunately, this changed when we received the Turtle Beach VelocityOne Flight Universal Flight Control System. This is a particularly exciting time as it allows us to write our first ever review of a HOTAS, well, technically speaking, a HOTAS-related product. So let’s take a closer look to see what VelocityOne from Turtle Beach has to offer.
