Steering Wheel set up for Bombard Aerotec

So i've just got back from the London boat show where i've just bought a Bombard. I'd like a steering wheel set up and i'm just wondering if anyone has one and what it cost them.
Thanks,
Owen.

As an aside it will be very interesting to hear your Honwave vs Bombard views when you've been out in it. There is often chat on here about which is best of the two for this or that circumstance but few folks have owned both.

Did you manage to get a post autumn 2015 Aerotec? Be interesting to see if they've made any further changes over the 2014 models.

I have the Ultraflex steering on my Aerotec. Bought it secondhand for 50euros. Read these threadsħ
Need help finding ultraflex/teleflex cable
Steering: replace monocable

Im having to wait 5 weeks for delivery for the boat as its being made to order by Zodiac, so i assume it will be the revised one, i wasn't even aware it had been revised
I'll hopefully have the boat up and running by may time as i've got some lakes near where i live so i'll maybe do a little comparison thread

Where did you source your steering bar?

>>>wasn't even aware it had been revised

My comparison was between one of the very earliest from about 17yrs ago to a new in 2015 but 2014 made one... info here if you're interested...

A tale of two Aerotecs - with a twist.

Mine was bought during the period Zodiac were in administration so there were questions if they would start up again with exactly the same range. I was just wondering aloud really if they'd changed anything on the Aerotec.

Yeah i heard Zodiac went into administration, i'll keep a look out when it comes if anything has changed. Almost ended up getting an F-Rib instead but it was a fair bit heavier than the Aerotec
Another question i was going to ask was what launching wheels do you use on your Aerotec?
