About Vamtor Wheel Stand
Vamtor gaming is bringing fun back into flight control and sim racing for the entry level crowds. This unit caters to a broad range of people young and old being easy to set up and store away when not in use. I would of loved this unit when I was a kid to mount my Madcats or Logitech wheel to and sit on my couch and play. I remember with the wheel I had I was always fighting to keep it on my lap and from moving around for consistent driving. I believe this Vamtor wheel stand will help bridge a needed gap for people to get into racing and/or flight sims with great ease without breaking the bank. It will allow people that are interested in simulation racing to get into this hobby, get their feet wet so to speak and then decide if it’s for them long term and then move up to a more dedicated static sim rig or just be satisfied with Vamtor Gaming solutions for their needs. This is a great thing for us simulation hobbyist and I welcome the addition.
So lets get into some detail about the Vamtor Gaming LD10 wheel stand. It’s developed to handle the most main stream range of wheels and flight sticks on the market. This patented design is functional and stylish with the top deck surface holding your wheel and will come pre-drilled for wheels (compatibility below) or allows proper room to use the wheels clamping system. The bottom deck is contoured for your legs with adjustable straps to wrap around your legs to hold it all in place. It also has a side deck to hold your gear shifter that can be mounted on either side of the base. Check out some videos to see how it works with a Logitech G27.
Seems like Vamtor is covering all the bases to make this a successful product! Lets look at the product specs.

I like what Vamtor is trying to bring to the market and I feel there is a need for this. It is not for the high end user and really that market is getting saturated now. I believe it caters more to the entry level user and for those that just don’t have the space, extra monitor or TV that a full size static rig requires most the time. It should also be an easy sale to your partner as not having some huge piece of furniture that goes with nothing in the house. It’s defiantly easily to stow away when not in use. Vamtor is looking to release this December 2017 if the Kickstarter pledge amount gets met. The details for the Kickstart pledges and rewards are listed on his page so check it out!
