Recently I bought the KW-908 Jetseat. And I like it so much that I think a short blurb is in order! The Jetseat really adds to the immersion giving you a form of tactile feedback about what the airframe is doing, like stalls, G-buffetting, landing gear extension, taxi bumps, etc. A program called SimShaker makes this possible (see below).
Jetseat is a Russian made product that is quite hard to obtain from the manufacturer, but a community member named Andrey offers a handy webshop for easy dispatch and support for Western users.

It’s a ‘cushion’ that you can fit on just about any office chair and it features 8 motors to provide force-feedback.
The ‘seat’ offers three zones; 4 motors under your thighs and bum, 2 motors in your lower back and 2 motors at your shoulder area.
Andrey and his crew, collectively known as Dreamsim Team offer a software solution to interface with many commonly used sims like DCS (but also racing sims), called SimShaker.
The application is updated often and new DCS modules are usually added to the application within a few days. Andrey himself is *VERY* quick with support if there are any issues or questions. Truely a ‘Dream Team’ so far. 🙂
