Hardware

The Museum has a small collection of flight sim related controllers. Space is a major consideration when storing hardware and the recent dismal example of the Australian Computer Museum Society's failure to attract support for their enormous and comprehensive collection of computer hardware is a salutary tale!

So at this time (2006) there are no plans to increase or even attempt a physical collection of Hardware.

However the Museum's web-based hardware gallery is an ongoing project, so feel free to submit relevant information here - Contact MiGMan with your experiences regarding this sim..
