What Comes in the Box?

There has been some confusion out among some gaming journalists regarding what actually comes with the purchase of Obutto’s R3volution gaming cockpit. In order to make it as clear as possible, we are going to list it out for you fine readers.

Basic R3volution cockpit includes

  • Base R3volution cockpit frame
  • Single monitor mount
  • Racing seat and seat frame
  • Cup holder
  • Side throttle/shifter mount
  • Keyboard mount and tray
  • Foot/pedal tray
  • Steering wheel / yoke mounting tray

Extra R3volution cockpit accessories

  • Triple monitor arms
  • Acrylic table tops and mounting arms
  • Center flight stick mount



Price List

  • Base R3volution gaming cockpit ($699.99)
  • Acrylic table tops ($124.99)
  • Triple monitor arms ($124.99)
  • Center flight stick mount ($54.99)
    • Total Price (w/o tax): $1,004.96 Dollars

As you can see, purchasing all of the Obutto R3volution accessories as well as cockpit from one of the various distributors around the world will set you back over one thousand dollars.  Gamers may be put off by this price point – but, when you compare the Obutto R3volution to the many competitors out there, this much money is actually a deal given the unit’s functionality. Here are some competitors and their prices (click each thumbnail for the details):

These competitors all suffer in some way when compared to the Obutto R3volution. The cheaper ones feature poor build quality and a lack of flexibility while the closest of the competitors, the RennSport, does not feature any utility capability for doing desk work while in the gaming cockpit and is more expensive. Finding a gaming cockpit that can double as an office desk is a tall order, and Obutto is doing this the best of any cockpit maker around right now.

In Conclusion

Overall, the Obutto R3volution gaming cockpit is a worthy and true successor to their previous oZone model and, frankly, I can’t imagine playing a simulation game without it. From the cockpit’s incredibly build quality to its aggressive lines and utilitarian philosophy, the Obutto R3volution gaming cockpit will revolutionize your flight or racing sim experience. While not entirely perfect, it is the best gaming cockpit on the market today – especially when taking into consideration its price point.

What we loved…

  • Incredibly strong build quality
  • Increased racing and flight simulation immersion
  • Articulated arms supporting the keyboard tray, optional acrylic table tops, and monitor (three if you purchase the optional triple mount)
  • Monitor fine adjustment is light-years more flexible than in the previous cockpit

What we thought could be improved…

  • Optional acrylic table tops could be deeper in size
  • I would love to see a couple speaker mounts flanking the head area of the seat for rear-mounted speakers
  • Changing the shifter and optional flight stick mounts to be articulated arms for better customization of controller placement
