“Remember we had a preview of the upcoming SIXAXIS controller for PC? Well Garrett has now embedded the whole controller into his model airplane. He also added some special effects such as the motor which will rotate at a speed proportional to the actual throttle
in the game.

Of course, there are ways to use your SIXAXIS controller on your PC, but here’s a way you can create a PS3 SIXAXIS style controller for PC from scratch.

Now the question is, what will he embed it in next?”Link.

Pretty neat, when you play the game the propellor spins and you use the plane as a joystick (it’s the same plane as the game has too) – video here. Not everything is released (custom board) but hopefully it will be later.
