Default Throttle dilemma

Hey all -

Currently I own the TM Warthog stick and throttle. I love the stick, especially with an extension for it.

However, the throttle I'm not so certain about especially since I'll be likely never flying the A-10c for any foreseeable future. With that said, I do not like the warthog throttle for the hornet. So this is where I'm stuck and need some advice... do I purchase:
- TM T16000 throttle ($80)
- Buy a logitech/saitek x-56 and use the throttle only
- wait for the VPC MongoosT-50 throttle? Who knows when the heck this is going to come out.

Any other ideas? I really do not care for the warthog too much with the hornet. I feel like there arent enough buttons on the throttle.

Thoughts?

I believe Virpil is accepting pre-orders now for their throttle with a July delivery stated.

Excluding dual engine control - what most time is used together, TWCS is the one that fill better the needs with their rotarie and mini-stick, so is a good "workaound" until best solutions don't come.

Expensive solution - and even the 'new gray/black' X-56 still not "bullet proof".

Probable the best to to, but keep in mind that first VPC throttle don't have analog "slew/mini-stick/thumbstick".
