Default Thrustmaster Magnetic base

Force sense? Or just a fancy name for the old base - and old grip?

I think they mean that you can now buy the base as standalone unit and buy additional the stick you want.. no longer forced to buy a warthog-stick including the base.. now you can have the base and buy a F-16 stick... but why the hell I should buy a F-16 grip when I have the A-10C grip already?

Way better it would have been if the F-16 Throttle would be re-animated to life….

Looks like they just did al a carte rebranding of the same old parts. So you don’t have to bother repairs to try and buy just the base or just the stick anymore.

If just rebranding - it is a big disappointment indeed!

Isn't the hall-effect base a new feature?

No, since release in ~2010 Warthog base use Melexis 3D Hall sensor (MLX-90333).

rather than force sense, it would be good if they make a non-sticky base like vkb or virpil

Like Cupra said, I think it's the base as a standalone product. As for why sell the stick as the F-16 stick, I'm not entirely sure, it would make sence if the F-18 stick would have been sold as a complete unit (with base). Maybe it has the writing on top? Boy that would be trivial... LOL
