What does the Obutto R3Volution Base Cockpit come with?
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.×

I got this thing on the last round of pre-orders and have to say I LOVFE IT! Putting it together was actually pretty easy after following the tutorial videos. I had a Volair Sim cockpit before and did not like it for a few reasons. all of which the Obutto rev cured out of the box. It's def much sturdier and awesome looking. the volair is quite overpriced and complete junk in comparison (yes the obutto r3v is more expensive, but it's obvious why!) the volair just felt really really cheap. the triple mounts dont adjust like they do for the rev, and they do come with it, but no option for a better triple mount that honestly is whats needed. the r3v triple mount articulates and is fully adjustable. the seat in the r3v is 100x more comfy too. The volair seat was really hard and uncomfortable.
anyway - very happy with my Obutto R3volution, and super glad I ditched the Volair. Do yourself a favor and dont waste the money. When I was buying it I called and all the guy did was talk trash and compared it to the obutto and how it's much better. I guess he did me a favor though as I had not heard of the Obutto before he (The volair sales guy) started talking about how much better their volair junk cockpits are. Main Perf was even professional when I asked questions about it (the obutto) compared to the Volair - they refused to even acknowledge the Volair cockpit and said the policy is they dont talk about their competitors products good or bad. Dont let them (Volair) sweet talk you and make the mistake I made. Get the Obutto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Guys, I have had the Obutto Revolution for around a month now and still love everything but the directions on how to install it. The product was easy to put together the directions complicated the process and slowed me down go figure. If you plan on buying this leave yourself plenty of space and time to put together and think one step ahead you shouldn't have to many problems if you find yourself stuck go on YouTube there are good installation videos out there. Ok so product shipped to me from the west coast to Massachusetts in little time and no damage I was able to track the progress so I give that... 10/ 10. Packaging was great but directions were ok... 7/10 product quality and finishing 9/10 only because the tv stand could be a little better and it should come with brackets to fit your 30" plus tv come on guys.. Build time around 6 hours without wiring & wheel installation, and not including cleaning up the cardboard! Durability... Guys I am 6' 210 lb and I fit in this thing perfect mind you I have broad shoulders i can see this thing being around for years overall 10/10! Great job Obutto & Main performance pc!!!

Have been using the Rev as my workstation (CAD/CAM/3d Graphics) for about 2 months now. I love it. I got some strange looks from the guys in the shop, but i didnt use my "desk" to do anything but collect junk. This is very comfortable, great for my back, and makes my workstation feel futuristic and high tech, which is what management liked about it. And price-wise, i know people in my office who have spent more on ergonomic chairs, or standing desks than this. I am a big guy (300 lbs and 6') and the workstation fits me fine and feels sturdy. It is a project to put together, count on a full day. But very very worth it.

Best purchase I've made all year!! Had no problem putting it together. Getting monitors level with the triple screen setup was a little bit harder. Very comfortable! The acrylic desktops are amazing. It keeps my keyboard at perfect level. Mounted on the swivel like it is, if it's not needed, just push out of the way. It is built like a tank. I wasn't sure how it was made, but it is fully welded, and solid as can be. I have sat in the obutto ozone, and this is much easier to get into and out of. Your not pulling on your display rack. I would give it an ATABOY!
I am using for flight sim mainly, but I have started racing sims, now that I have a set-up for it.

Great customer updates from Main Performance on status of shipment when ship was late to arrive at port. Very professional and frequent communication. Now about the rig. I've also purchased the Triple Monitor Stands (used with 24" Asus 144 Hz monitors) and Table Tops. Using Clubsport wheel, pedals, and shifter. The assembly videos are excellent. Didn't have to use paper instructions. Main rig (pedals, steering wheel, seat) is very sturdy. Easily accommodates my 5'9" body and my son's 6'3" frame. You do have to be a little careful getting in and out of the rig to not bump the left monitor. There is ~20" between the monitor and the seat (keyboard tray is moved out of the way). Overall, very happy with purchase. Not sure there is a better option/value for the money. Since I didn't want to spend many weeks planning a cockpit system and several more weeks building it, this Obutto R3Volution Gaming Cockpit is the perfect solution.

I don't usually write reviews, but Chris and Main Performance PC have been super friendly and super helpful. I've never had customer service that responds this fast and well. He replied within a couple hours to my emails, and was able to help me solve the building issue I had (Just had to scrape one of the holes with my pocket knife to make something fit). Building it for the most part was straightforward. The instruction videos explained everything really well so I didn't even need to look at the instructions. A few of the bolts were not long enough and I had to go to the hardware store to get longer ones, but that's really a non-issue.
The cockpit itself is wonderful. Super comfortable and ergonomic, just like it looks in the pictures. I've been using it for a couple weeks straight now and still love it just as much as the first day. The chair is getting a little squeaky already, which concerns me a little, but otherwise, this thing is super stable, and really well designed. I got all the accessories: triple monitor mount, 5.1 speaker setup, acrylic tabletops, and flight stick mount. I don't regret any of them, except perhaps the speaker mounts.
Triple monitor mount: Really cool for triple monitor gaming, and it's hard to go back once trying it. But the side arms sag a little more than you can make up by adjusting, the best I can get is about a half inch lower than the middle monitor.
Acrylic Tabletops: Perfect! I love how they are adjustable, just like everything else on the R3volution! They look futuristic too. :) I have my keyboard on one, so I can have it off to the side when flying, but still reachable.
5.1 speaker mounts: These would be good for little speakers. I only have 2 speakers (Behringer MS16 Powered Studio Desktop Monitors), but they are bigger than these were designed for. They held mine OK with the velcro, but it wasn't stable, and even with rubber bands I didn't feel comfortable using them. I ended up buying actual speaker stands for this (VideoSecu 2 Heavy duty PA DJ Club Adjustable Satellite Speaker Stand MS07B M99 ) and they work perfectly. Nothing wrong with the mount accessory; it was just designed for smaller speakers, so keep that in mind.
Flight stick mount: Essential for what I use the cockpit for! But pre-drilled holes for mounting a joystick and throttle would be nice. It does come with velcro, which is how I'm using it right now.

Items we packed well with no damage. I appreciate the way the hardware was packaged - very high class. The finish on the parts is excellent. I got it together in 4-5 hours at an easy pace. Nothing difficult in the assembly, just time consuming. I followed the video instructions which worked very well.
The cockpit itself is top quality and well thought out. Personally, being 6'5" with wide hips, the chair side bolsters are quite uncomfortable. Easily fixed by adding a pillow to the bottom. I would recommend two seat options- one racing style and one more comfort oriented for us fringe cases and non-racers. Most people don't have a full-motion rig to require those crazy bolsters- even tighter than my GTI.
The placement of the holes on the pedal tray is causing my G27 pedals to be very low on the tray- the heel rest hangs over the front edge. A set of higher holes would be nice to more center the G27 pedals.
But other than minor gripes, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

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.
