Default Thrustmaster Hornet HOTAS?

Hasn't been brought up in a few months, so I figured I would ask again--anyone know anything about this? Wags?

Do you guys (and gals of course) think there will be a full new stick or just a replacement for the Warthog?

Throttles DEFINITELY have to be rebuilt to fit the Hornet, though (IMO).

I'll fight you to be first in line for this bad boy if and when it comes out!

I'm not that bothered about a Hornet stick. It may be more authentic but it's useful having the redundant buttons on the Warthog one, for VR amongst other things.

A throttle quadrant I'd definitely be interested in, but that's a whole new product so I won't be holding my breath.

I would imagine that the thrustmaster announcement next week will be a package of throttle and stick, just like the original warthog.

You will probably be able to buy the throttle separately too I would think.

If the quality hasn't improved, then no thank you. I kind of want the Hornet grip but that means one less hat switch which will make using A-10C harder. Im perfectly fine with the current T-50 base + 10cm extension + WH grip, TM WH Throttle and MFG Crosswind setup. If this throttle bricks too i'm not even considering buying another throttle from Thrustmaster.

I would be interested in just the grip not the base. I'm waiting for the vpc warBRD to ship out to me and will be using the Warthog grip and the T50 grip for most of my flights. If they come out with it soon I may just order the grip but yeah it does seem like the A10/ t50 grip has more functions.

Already own three Warthog sticks and two throttles. Just the grip is the only thing I am interested in.

All we need a new base for the F/A-18C, simulating the "MECH stick", with FFB.

i would love to get the stick alone w/o the base for my T-50


A high quality throttle quadrant relplica would be more than welcomed and imho more urgent than the stick
