This F16 ICP USB Controller is perfect for Flight sim Enthusiasts who fly the F16 in Flight Simulator games, ie DCS:F16-C Viper or FalconBMS
The ICP (Integrated Control Panel) is the main interface to the other systems of the F-16. It is used among others, to enable weapons, selection of navigation settings and selection of radio communications
A short video of the unit in action in DCS F-16C Viper on the Tarmac is below.
The unit is programmed as a HID USB Device usable as a standard joystick, and is also able to be toggled to DCSBIOS mode with 2 quick button presses (with DCS F-16C Viper being in early access I am not sure what may change but I will attempt to provide firmware updates if possible for any changes).
Please note, the device won’t show up in “Game Controllers” in windows, but any game when in HID mode should work fine and detect it and the button presses.
The enclosure is made from 3mm Matt Black acrylic for a nice clean finish, and is 140mm W x 115mm H x 50mm D.
To make it easier to use on your desktop from the get go a “simple” 3mm MDF vertical mount is included which will angle the unit at ~ 70 Degrees.
The MDF mount will need to be glued with some PVA glue. As everybody’s use case and setup is different, this is not a completely rigid mount and shouldn’t be considered as such, it is designed to get you up and running whilst you work out what works best for you. For proper mounting the back of the Acrylic enclosure has keyhole slots in it so it could be custom mounted with some M4 bolts to a more stable solution of your choosing. The F16 ICP Plate is not screwed into the enclosure but is a friction fit.
The F16 ICP is Backlit with green LED lighting that can be adjusted and is connected with a micro USB port (Cable Not Included you must supply your own DATA cable, please note a phone charge only cable won’t work)
This is a hobby quality product and is made to order by hand and will have some imperfections but is 100% working with all the buttons and 4 analog axis tested and working.
Average lead time on this unit will vary from 20-30 days depending on my workload.
