Flydigi just announced a new controller – Flydygi Apex 4. It has some pretty great features. It’s priced at 599 RMB, so it should be around $80-100 for the standard edition and $135 for Eva edition. The Eva edition also includes a set of accessories – case, height caps, charging dock and mobile holder.
Edit: It looks to be available for pre-order on Aliexpress, but priced slightly higher at $93 with coupon for the standard edition.
It seems like an evolution over Apex 3 Pro and it’s main selling points looks to be the Hall Effect Joysticks which have very strong return to the neutral position. And the sticks have adjustable tension. And it also had adaptive triggers. It’s available in China right now and should come to Aliexpress and Amazon this month (probably 21th of January).
It looks like a great competitior to the Gulikit KK3 Max controller.
