Wow I would buy this just to avoid any motoring tickets, "officer my passenger took over control when the offence was committed"!

You must say "you have control" and the reply "I have control" This will be recorded on the black box recorder.

You be aware of a prototype called the F200 which was built in 1996 which also had a joystick control. I've had 1 of the 2 prototypes in my workshop and its a bizarre set up.

Here is a video of it in action.
