“I got this thing on the last round of pre-orders and have to say I LOVE 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Well after all these years i decided that playing PC at a desk was not cool. So finally i bit the bullet and found my new workstation, sim racer, flight sim or as i like to put it, “The Command Center”.
The service offered by Brendon of Sim Parts in NZ was awesome. He patiently answered all my questions and when i paid too much, he kindly refunded. Shipping to Australia was fast, i think the cockpit was in the country 8 hours after order. Queue customs. A few days later, delivered, set up and loving it.
Build quality is great and the instructions as well as those offered by Chris are just awesome. Be prepared to spend a few hours assembling but it all goes pretty well.
Now tempted to buy some accessories. r3v acrylic tabletops and triple monitor stand. Have to justify it being a workstation to the misses
Most comfortable PC desk I’ve had.
Glad i chose Obutto
“I just wanted to drop by and say thanks for such an awesome product! I really wanted a cockpit for sim-racing but was having a hard time justifying the costs. My R3V is amazing!… It’s a full desk replacement…awesome cockpit!…awesome work station!
If anyone is researching these and you are having trouble pulling the trigger like I was…just do it! You will not regret it one bit. Plus you get to support people who dare to dream…then build it for us…lol.”
“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.”
“The Obutto R3volution is built for stability, but what is more surprising is the adjustability. You can adjust the wheel to be closer, farther, up, down, what angle it sits at. The pedal tray has mounts to adjust the angle the pedals sit at. The monitor stand is separate, so you can move the monitors closer or further away, and also you can adjust them up and down. The seat is the classic comfy obutto seat, and has the ability to lean straight back, who needs a bed when you have an obutto? The keyboard tray has 3 separate pivot points, and can also be adjusted to have an angle facing you.
This whole setup takes up less room than your average desk, and with the acrylic table tops, this CAN be your desk. You will have no regrets purchasing one of these bad boys, that’s a promise.”
“As a retired Engineer, I have a deep appreciation for well designed products. I have found that the entire R3Volution product line to fall into the catagory of “well designed”. As I ordered one of everything, I can assure those of you thinking about making a purchase to delay no longer. All of the components assembled without any issues. Having a tripple 27″ monitor setup is superb. I have my speakers mounted on top of the monitors and the monitors mounts are up to the task. Were I ever to purchase another Gaming Cockpit again, I would purchase another R3Volution.
As a side note, this cockpit has completely replaced my dedicated Computer Desk as it is no longer required.
Hesitate no longer, this product line is first class.
“It’s a great product. Wasn’t hard to assemble.
Also I use this as my home workstation. I work from home 3 days a week. I am a technical operations manager for a silicon valley network security company and I honestly feel that this makes me more efficient when working. I have always had 3 monitors but it was never “comfortable” in regular office chairs.
Thanks for making a product that fits both my needs 🙂
Well worth every penny.”
“Just wanted to pass on my thoughts a week into owning and using an Obutto R3voultion. I can’t get across how much I am loving this awesome, awesome, product. And also how great the whole experience has been so far…..
I have used the R3V so far for iracing, BF3 and typing things like this post.
My overall improvement in comfort and posture, compared to using a desk and chair, makes this thing well worth the investment. I’ll also not forget to mention the fact that the thing looks freaking awesome in my study.
So to wrap up, Chris and his team are absolutely brilliant, the product they have produced is so well built, so well finished, and so inexpensive for the quality, that I am recommending it to all my mates, whenever I can.
Also a massive thanks to Brendon and his team at Simparts in NZ for the excellent experience I have had dealing with them, all my emails were responded to quickly, and I would have no hesitation buying anything off them in the future.”
“My boyfriend harps at me all the time for buying this computer gaming chair, but I don’t regret it for an instant. There’s a huge difference between piloting my Armored Core mech using a lousy keyboard and mouse and sitting in a custom cockpit with a joystick. He just doesn’t understand the gaming experience. This thing puts me in the thick of it with comfort and responsiveness. Everything is adjustable and looks really cool. Boyfriends suck, the Revolution is awesome.”
“I just wanted to let you know that I’m very satisfied with my Obutto cockpit. It seems almost overbuilt, very sturdy, and very comfortable. After reading some comments about competitor’s chairs requiring welding repairs, I had emailed to ask about large users (weigh about 315 myself), and you assured me that the cockpit would handle my size quite well. You were absolutely correct, it’s solid and handles my size without strain. It really makes long racing sessions almost effortless. I really enjoy GTR2 and EVO much more now that I don’t have to chase my pedals around.”
“Just wanted to let you know that I received my cockpit a week or so ago and it is awesome. But you knew that. No complaints at all. I do have a question for you though. Do you have any plans to perhaps sell a monitor stand that would allow for a triple monitor setup? I’m sure I can rig something up when the time comes, but I would much prefer a dedicated solution. Thanks again. Terrific product.”
“Just gotta let you know how fantastic the oZone is. There is nothing out there that can touch this rig for price AND construction! It is rock solid stable and comfortable. Seat and wheel position is spot-on per-fect. I can’t imagine driving a rig with the steering support between your legs. Anyhow thinking about buying an oZone, don’t hesitate, you won’t be sorry!!”
“I just have to tell ya that I’m really enjoying my obutto cockpit. Been playing first person shooters and driving sims and its a blast. It is so convenient and comfortable. Been spreading the word bro :)”
