I'll definitely use them.

So bind them to something different?

Whats the estimated shipping price from China to Europe?

Thanks
Dear Gruman,
Yes, the extensions will be there then.
The weight is a problem ,we still work hard to reduce the package weight.
You can buy from our Euro/US store(1.5 more month for ship transport), or send from China by air.

About the desk mounts, we have simulation when design them, when 100lbs force from top and 50lbs force from side work together on it, less than 2mm move on top of grip. It's as strone as your bike structure, you only need to worry your desk board!
Thank you very much.

3. Do you have any other aircraft planned already for additions to the throttle?
Dear Aniron,
1.No plan to sell separately right now.
2.Something more interesting will come later, but all should be affordable.
3.Yes both Throttle and Joystick,more like F16 is ready, please see our previous release: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...ight=F18+HOTAS

Thanks a lot

Winwing,

Can you send a review model to someone well known in the DCS community for a review? Thinking (if they are willing) one of these guys since they have done hardware reviews before:
