F-18 Center Grips

390,00750,00

F-18 grips are manufactured in two lines, Professional and Home. All of them are replica of F/A-18E Super Hornet with its true and ergonomic shape, manufactured in an one-piece body construction in high density resin and with a high-grade fixation system with a knurled nut.

Home line is available in two versions, the F18CGRH with a matte finish and slight grainy feel and the F18CGRH Anti-Slip, an exclusive and limited edition produced with a special rubberized anti-slip coating.

The F18CGRH can be used as a center stick like in the real jet and as a side stick. If it is going to be used as a side stick, the user can easily turn its position for a more ergonomic pilot usage. For that, the user must only unscrew two screws, turn the black grip part on the fixation system until the new position and screw the two screws in the new position holes.

The F18CGRH includes a Rotary switch installed under the TRIM hat switch cap to easily hot swap between 8 configurable memory slots, 5-way switches in all the hat switches (TRIM, SENSOR and WEAPON SELECT), 5-way switches where in real grip there is only 1 way (WR, NWS and RECCE), a realistic trigger, a Bluetooth LE for firmware upgrade and three status LEDs used to show the slot in use.

Availability:

  • F18CGRH in stock.
  • F18CGRH Anti-Slip in stock (available a limited edition of only 16 units).

Description

The F-18 Center Grip as well as the RS grips family come in two lines, Professional and Home.

Professional range uses its own software and real military switches as well as custom socket and connector, under client specification.

Home range comes in two versions, the F18CGRH and an exclusive and limited edition of only 16 units named F18CGRH Anti-Slip (F18CGRH-AS).

Both models are one-piece body construction, made in black nylon plastic with a high-grade fixation system manufactured in aeronautic aluminum with a knurled nut. The only difference between both models is the surface finish. The F18CGRH has a matte finish and a slightly grainy feel and the F18CGRH-AS a special rubberized anti-slip coating. For simplicity, since both are functionally equal, in the below description we will refer to them as F18CGRH.

The F18CGRH can be used as a center stick, like in the real jet and as a side stick. If it is going to be used as a side stick, the user can easily turn its position for a more ergonomic pilot usage. For that, the user must only unscrew two screws, turn the black grip part on the fixation system until the new position and screw the two screws in the new position holes.

The F18CGRH includes next switches: Trim, Sensor Select, Weapon Release, Recce, Weapon Select, Nose wheel steering and a 2 stages trigger. Except trigger switch, all F18CGRH switches are 5-way switches, so you have available until 56 different buttons.

The F18CGRH has the following features:

  • True F/A-18E Super Hornet shape which guarantees a grip fully egonomic. 
  • Orientation of switches actuations perfectly adapted to the natural movement of the pilot’s finger when actuated it.
  • A Rotary switch, installed under the TRIM hat switch cap to easily hot swap between 8 configurable memory slots. With a single thumb movement, you can reconfigure the whole system in a fraction of a second.
  • 5-way switches in all the hat switches (TRIM, SENSOR and WEAPON SELECT), with the possibility to disable the center position.
  • 5-way switches where in real grip there is only 1 way (WR, NWS and RECCE), with the possibility to disable the additional directions.
  • Realistic Trigger.
  • Three status LEDs used to show the slot in use.
  • Add extra features to the FSSB-R3 Lighting when is connected to the R3L base.
  • Firmware upgradeable through BLE, so you could need a 4.0 or higher BLE dongle if your PC doesn’t have BLE included.

Realsimulator F-18CGRH First Impressions and General Info

Disclosure:
This is a loaned preproduction unit via the courtesy of Realsimulator’s CEO. I do not have any ties to the company. I’m not a professional reviewer or Youtuber looking for followers, not even a licensed pilot (interventional cardiologist IRL). I, however, do get to try out new things once in a while because Realsim loves receiving meaningful and constructive feedbacks from customers. The objective of this write up is to help clarify the functionality of this soon to be release device as well as my very own impressions of it during initial usage. My primary purpose is also to provide feedbacks to Realsim, rather than you guys. I do have my own unit coming in later this month or next month.

What is the F-18CGRH?
It is a replica of the F/A-18E grip with additional functionality. This is a step-down model of Realsim’s military version which is specifically designed for home use with more affordable pricing. CGRH stands for center grip right handed, they also provide side grip as well as left handed versions.
