Editor's note: we're as skeptical as the next flight simmer about add-ons that start with fundraising campaigns. However, the miniFCU team has been in touch with us throughout the process and we have no reason to believe their goals aren't genuine. The team sends regrets they aren't able to join us at FlightSimExpo this year.

New hardware start-up obliterates funding goal, raising over 1000% of their target in seconds. See the campaign here.
