DDSSTT, yeah. I'm not in any rush at the moment, but the crap mini-stick and lack of return to centre on switches that should have it mean if there's an upgrade available, I'll take it.

Just ordered mine! Super Excited!

As others have noted though, I think it is a weird choice of real estate on that panel attachment to have the ground power switches on there, especially when it already deviates in other ways from the actual panel (moving pivot heat switches for example). I've never even touched them in the sim and have no idea what they do. Would be sweet to have a physical landing gear handle, or jettison button, or EW rotary.

I imagine the first batch should be shipped right away. Any word?

Wow! Mama! This is some serious HOTAS ! I thought Thrustmaster Warthog and that Russian company whose name escapes me, had serious HOTAS. Looks like it could work for A-10C, F/A-18, and serves as cycling/collective. For now I think I'll stick with X56. Not becpuse it is great, it is not! Or easy to program (not really). Or even good, which I do not think it is. I'll stick with X56 becouse my hand muscle memory has aclimated itself to X56 and its quirks.

Try using 4 sticks and two throttles of you really want confusion! It definitely keeps you on your toes ????. The WinWing will add even more confusion yet

Yep, jack of all trades and master of none, that's what happens when you have too many toys

aight... I have unclean thoughts about that throttle but really do not need another stick. Have they released any technical info on the throttle besides the 20cm travel/hall sensor and swapable grips thing?

Specifically -- Winwing Guy -- lots of us are going to probably but the preorder just for the throttle, please provide some detail. What sensor is used for slew? Radar altitude? I am curious about the texture as well given they are metal. But most importantly is that slew, and whether its user upgradeable, etc.

I asked about the slew on Facebook and they said PS4 style, similar to the TWCS (which was good).

The other axes (including radar elevation) are hall sensors.

In a surprise to me they say the friction lever is also a hall sensor axis (I would’ve thought it just did friction).
