The Hornet Stick is real/ correct for the Hornet...but appears to have fewer buttons...However, if I'm doing the math correctly there number is the same...

Both have a Paddle switch, a pinky sw, a weapon release button, 2 stage trigger, a Trim Sw, a 5 axis CMS switch , a mode / recce event switch...the only switch the Hornet stick lacks is the 4 axis TMS Switch...

But according to rumors, the Hornet Castle switch and Trim switch both have a Z-axis. (press in)

The Hornet also has a slider just above the recce sw.

If my math is correct, That's the same number of buttons as the Warthog.

Rocker is probably a better description, forward, back, and depress.

It has the same amount of buttons as the warthog stick.

So is the exhibit floor open to everyone Friday or do we need to sign up for one of the "Captains Corner" lectures to get in? The website doesn't mention general admission on Friday.

While not ABSOLUTELY positive, I do believe the trade show floor is NOT open Friday. Presenters for Captains Corner are four seminars; Prepare 3D, Jetline Systems, Navigraph. ORBX and X-Plane. They are timed seminars, one right after the other.

Hopefully Mr. Wags will clarify the 7th (Friday) only comment. I am attending the Captains Corners seminars, however I don't believe the Thrustmaster, or any vendor booth is operational on Friday.

Hopefully I'm wrong and will be corrected. I'm hopeful I could see the DCS new module previews, but would need to know the time as to decide which other seminar I may have to forgo to see them.

Cheers,

Bob

Edit 4/17: I did talk with the admin folks for the show. There is no access to the vendor floor on Friday. Captains Corner conferences are in another breakout room for most of the day Friday the 7th.

Here's an idea for the multiplayer guys which wouldn't be able to attend in person, to set up a mission flying to the virtual location of this Expo in DCS and watch it while flying if it's going to be a livestream.

I'd even donate a few coins to who are close but would need some assitance (ED could vett them they're really real and check that they really go), but I don't want to be the one organizing that. To kinda kickstart the public to go out for these events more.

That is a great idea.

Too bad SATAL won't be running until Saturday, that's an impressive showcase for DCS and Thrustmaster's generous sponsorship. Prob worth at least having video running.

But yeah a fly-in would be cool.

Glad to see this Wags. I went to flight sim expo last year. I told the organizers they should include DCS world. I am formerly a civilian flight sim enthusiast (X-plane but a years ago also FSX) but it has lost a lot of appeal when compared to the leaps and bounds DCS has made in the last few years. I chose not to attend this year primarily because I did not see a DCS presence. I think this is great, and I hope you guys chose to keep attending US based flight sim conferences as I think it would really help boost the DCS customer base. If this is the case I will definitely come out next year.
