The ForceFly is another exciting FPV tele-presence product from EMR Laboratories Inc. designed to enhance the FPV flying experience. The ForceFly is a small computer with a USB port designed to work with a force feedback joystick. The ForceFly is user programmable to convert the joystick inputs to PPM outputs that can be fed directly into the buddy port of your transmitter. With hundreds of programmable options the ForceFly is much more flexible then your transmitter and can do so much more. 
The ForceFly includes a mini 2-axis gyro board which replaces the microphone on your FPV aircraft to send force feedback signals down to the joystick. With many user definable force feedback modes and settings you can tune the feedback to both your aircraft and your liking. The ability to ‘feel’ your aircraft in flight is an unparalleled experience, not to mention other people are able to feel the flight when playing back recorded videos of flying. The ForceFly is feature rich with options and settings never before seen in one package.
