I've been making and selling these for a while to cameramen for £500 including foot pedals. I have 3 units left in stock currently. 

 

Mine are used to simply control the mouse and press the space or other pre-programmed button. Great for playing first person shoot-em ups. You don't need to install any custom software. 

 

Private message me if your interested.

A friend of mine is involved in the production of the hurricane wheels. I already signed up for a pair and knowing him I'm pretty sure they are great.

His project looks great. He looks like he has some balanced handwheels and he has a scale in production slated which will make it worthwhile him doing. I struggled a little because of the costs of the rotary encoders. My margins where so rubbish the project fell a little flat. My hat is off to all those people out there that do actually manage to deliver a product at scale to market.
