Terms & Conditions

Please read the following terms and conditions before you buy a licence to use the SimBox (the "Software") from us (the "FlyingArt", "developer").

This contract is only available in English. No other languages will apply to this contract.

1. Introduction

SimBox is a software that enhances the realism of flight simulators, including Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, X-Plane 11, and X-Plane 12. The software consists of a client app for mobile devices and web, and an app that runs on PC together with the simulator (the "SimBox Control"). The software is developed by FlyingArt and is available for purchase on the SimBox website.

1.1. Product Description

1.1.1. Base

The SimBox Control app communicates with the simulator and passes data to the client app. It can also be used for configuration and profiles editing. Users can trigger actions on the simulator directly from their tablet, phone, or web app through switches and buttons, as well as a virtual knob.

1.1.1.1. Profiles

SimBox Control is designed to work with aircraft profiles written in JSON format. The developer provides a set of default profiles for different aircraft and simulators. Users can create their own profiles or import them disk or from the web. Developer does not take any responsibility for the profiles imported by the user.

1.1.2. Knob

SimBox Control comes with STL files for 3D printing and Arduino code for DIY devices to increase realism. DIY knob files are available only if special version of SimBox was purchased.
