I'll just mention for the record that the T16K throttle has the radar elevation control you're looking for and a functional TDC stick. I mean, if you have to fly around on something that's not exactly what you're looking for, there's an argument for not spending any money on it right

On my way back from work i stopped in Canada computers, ALthough the TM Hotas was sold out now, they still do have one on display. IT felt really really nice, like woah . Makes X55 seem like a toy in comparison, which in all honesty in turn back when i bought that seemed like a big upgrade over the simple Logitech 3d Pro.


Another thing i am considering is that is financially more practical to get the TM HOTAS from AMazon.ca ( best price here in Canada i could find) , because with the Virpil base + Hornet grip, it comes out to being nearly as expensive as the TM Hotas due to International shipping costs to NA.

Ultimately Id rather get a full hotas setup for a comparable price than just Stick + base.

SO im going TM Warthog, as it still within an tolerable price for the quality.

Given its a proven product ( produced what 10 years?) and lower cost, im ultimately deciding on the TM warthog.

I don’t know how it is in Canada, but you can occasionally get a brand new TMWH HOTAS set for $300 here in the US.

First thing to do if you’re getting a Warthog is stick a DeltaSim TDC upgrade in it. It’ll save a lot of frustration with the stock “nipple” which is next to useless.

Thanks for the advice guys! It arrived yesterday. Gonna take some time to relearn with a new hotas. Besides being fully mapped out for the A10 module ( for obvious reasons) i was however somewhat surprised to see that its fully pre mapped out for other modules. Very convenient.

yeah looks like something i should get, although wouldn't that void any warranty when i still have a new product?


Also that sounds like quite a wait if the backlog for pre orders is so long that It wont be until October that more are ready for production.
