Class Echo REQUIRES a registered / paid SPAD.neXt software license (MSFS / FSX / P3D Edition) and valid simulator installation (Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020) to operate.
The Class Echo simulator panel is a controller made specifically for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. It takes many of the most common controls and puts them at your fingertips. No longer do you have to pan around the cockpit and zoom into autopilot, radio, COM and NAV panels. Autopilot values are selected easily using the touch screen and digital rotary encoder. COM and NAV frequencies are swapped with a touch, and input is done with a responsive touch screen number pad. Essential information about your flight, fuel and engines are displayed on screen in an easy-to-read layout.
The Class Echo can be paired with an external hardware knob (ShakePrint Knob, Sim Innovations Knobster, or a DIY option) to allow for an amazing experience with the touch controls and tactile feel of a physical encoder.
The Class echo is fully programmable and utilizes SPAD.neXt 'profiles' to allow for custom control hotspots, logic, and other user-derived workflows to be created.
Please see the ShakePrint website and discord if you have questions, issues, or feedback on the Class Echo.
