What does the Obutto R3Volution Base Cockpit come with?
Below are the available bulk discount rates for each individual item when you purchase a certain amount
RAID 0 (Striping) takes two drives of the same size and creates a bridge between them to make them act as one large drive. For example two 250GB drives would show up on the system as one large 500GB drive. This increases the speed of data being processed as it writes and reads across both drives. The downside is there is no data security. If one drive goes down in the RAID 0 configuration all data is lost as half is stored on one drive and the other half on the other. This is best used for situations where the data is not critical, but a speed performance increase may be desirable such as when using the machine for gaming.
RAID 1 (Mirroring) takes both drives and uses one to create a real time backup to the second. In this case two 250GB drives will show up as one 250GB drive. This is a good setup for those looking for data security as information put on the main drive of the RAID will immediately be copied over to the other drive as an exact match. You do lose some speed due to the extra processing, but allows for the data to be saved if one of the drives in the RAID go down. Simply replacing the defective drive will automatically rebuild the array over a short time.×

Just recieved my cockpit. Spent the day assembling. My thoughts:
Packaging was EXCELLENT. Really. I always get nervous when heavy items are shipped to my place as things invariably get destroyed en route due to poor packing. Not so here. Everything was secure, delivered un-damaged. Set aside about 30 minutes to unwrap the frame tubing, but leave the numbered boxes unpacked until each step in the course of assembly. Speaking of which:
Assembly video is straightforward and a definite must. Clear, concise instruction that made putting it together more fun than I expected.
Build quality is sturdy, and the thing is a looker. With the tables I definitely get a 'stealth fighter' impression.
Monitor stand is the only disappointment--too much of a tipping risk given the legs rotate free of the mount. I realize it is by design, but my initial though of mounting a 55inch display went out the window after I realized how wobbly it was. It's going to need some modification to match up with the quality and sturdiness of the rest of the cockpit. Definitely not a deal breaker, though, and I imagine it might be suitable for most with a smaller monitor attached.
Optional acrylic tables are awesome.definitely worth the buy.
All in all, this really is the sim cockpit I've been dreaming of. I originally bought it for racing, but the versatility of the design means I may repurpose it for flight sims and space sims as well.

I have owned this setup for almost 2 years now and still love it. Comfortable, and have a10 hotas mounted (stick on right side) so I can swivel it out of way when working. Yeah, it is my everything pc "desk".
Some of my Cons:
- steering wheel too high even when pushed in all the way. Wish had up/down adjustment (even tho obutto says I am wrong on this point)
- mounting points for accessories are fixed in position and do not allow forward back adjustment quickly as you move seat forward back. You can remount accessories, but requires tools and not suitable for every day/ different people changes.
- monitor stand is not ready for prime time, and monitor weight will stress metal mounting points. Especially triple screen, but it does work.
- acrylic tabletops nice, but wish had height adjustment - would still purchase again however so minor quibble.
- center post for flight stick does not move with seat and not comfortable to get in and out of seat with it there. So I don't use this and have stick on right.
All above considered, I would buy it again, yet since it is well built no need for that. :)

I just purchased, delivery took about 4 days. I watched the videos, and followed along during assembly. It took about 3 1/2 hours pretty straight forward, no surprises. It is very comfortable. Purchased the triple mount, and throttle & stick. I am really enjoying the product, it is very strudy, and well designed.
Thanks, I would recommend to anyone looking for a great product for flight sim.

The product was available at a local distributor the next day and saved me shipping, what luck. That is the way this purchase started. Assembly was straight forward, but the instructions basically suck. Every video review not by obbutto say the same thing, so no surprise there. I am 350+ man and although the seat is made for the masses, not for big guys, it really is pretty comfortable, and sturdy enough for us big guys. As far as lasting, we'll see. I am a flight simulation guy, and this pit does work as such, it is not a perfect fit without some modifications. I bought all the extras, have Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS, and the mounts work perfectly. The really only bad thing is that the 3 screen mounting system is not very well supported without mounting the base to something rigid. It seems like there should be another cross member attaching them together, not just the single monitor bridge. A second brace would be much more stable. All in all, I would recommend this pit for the racing or flying enthusiast. A bit pricey but you could not build one yourself for less. I hope this helps others decide favorably on this product.

GREAT PRODUCT LOVE IT WELL BUILT JUST AWESOME 1 OF THE BEST THINGS I HAVE BOUGHT FOR SIM RACING!!! a little drawn out to put together but easy to do just a lot of parts to put together. GET YOU 1 !!!

Since this is the first substantial gaming cockpit I have purchased, I can't compare it to other comparably priced items. The previous setup was cobbled together and was less than ideal. This product is outstanding in its stability. Nothing moves when at the wheel, and the seat is extremely comfortable even after a couple of hours of intense racing. The only disadvantage that I have noticed is the inability to adjust the angle of the wheel when raising or lowering. I like the steering wheel low and parallel to my body when I drive, just as I do when driving my real Corvette. However, this I consider to be only a minor irritation. Other than that, I consider this to be an outstanding product, and a rock solid investment that will last a long time. Although it took 4 hours to assemble, it was worth the effort in the long run.

This is built like a tank it will last forever nothing moves or wobbles while you drive like a maniac. Assembly takes some time to get everything square and perfectly straight but once your done its worth it. The seat is comfortable for a few hours but I noticed the material will wrinkle on the bottom cushion I wish it was all leather. The key board tray is ok but I wish it had a small solid mounted tray on the right side of it for my phone, remotes, etc and a small hook to hang my headset. Other than those small things I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their game and be comfortable for the first time while you race or play your favorite shooters. I also purchased the triple monitor stand and assembled it looks cool but it feels like it could fall forward with heavy monitors it needs a better stance to take away that wobble and un easy feeling what if I bumped into. Other wise plenty of adjustability and it will last forever solid steel tubing.

While the cockpit itself is fantastic, the triple monitor setup stands out as a complete afterthought. While it holds the monitors, the rig does not give me confidence that it will keep from falling over if I were to even slightly bump it. There should be L-brackets added to the outside of the Obutto cockpit to ensure the monitor stand remains firmly "grounded."
Also, what's the deal with selling the Buttkicker as an "add-on" option when, in fact, there are ZERO mounting provisions for it. Add the proper holes in the cockpit and mounting hardware for the Buttkicker BEFORE you go calling it an "accessory."
