In addition to eyewear, Turtle Beach wants to have piece of the flight controller pie too. In fact, not just flight controller, the headset maker also wants a piece of the game controller action as well.

Two gaming hardware were announced earlier today: a Designed for Xbox Recon Controller and VelocityOne Flight simulation control system.

The Recon Controller is the “first (game controller) to pair Turtle Beach’s signature audio technology with game-winning controls” while VelocityOne Flight is “the complete flight control system, developed in collaboration with aeronautical engineers and pilots.”

The VelocityOne Flight will play well with both modern PC as well as Xbox Series X | S. The flight yoke promised to offer true-to-life 180-degree yoke handle with built-in rudder controls and includes a modular throttle quadrant with integrated trim wheel, and lever and vernier controls.
