Any chance your company is thinking about producing a force feedback joystick any time in the future?
That would get a lot of attention I am sure. We live in hope.

Happy landings,

I second this. Please make FFB one. Looking forward to this new design avalaible in my country

If a FFB stick is made again I really hope that Logi LEARN from the farce that was the G940. Cheap pots that they tried to mask with software and wires too short in the throttle arms.

Regarding the possibility of the throttle being sold independently, no plans at this stage but we'll keep listening out for requests.
Selling sperately shoukd be considered. As more boutique makers enter the market like Virpil and VKB modular setups mixing brands will be more common.

I’ve just got a T-16000m FCS bundle. If you sold the throttle separately I would seriously consider it as the feature set it excellent by comparison.

Seem to be a good news. I was desperately looking for a first HOTAS to start with DCS and this update comes at the right moment. I will wait for the first reviews to see the differences with the previous model.
I also hope that Logitech will consider selling the throttle separately. VKB and VPC are going to release their throttle but it will be expensive (300-350 plus) and there are people want to mix a x56 thottle with a better stick.

I solved my problem of ghost buttons presses by getting me a separate, powered USB hub. And plugging my X-56 joystick (throttle and stick) only in that hub. The moment I plugged any other USB device (e.g. USB G-35 headphones) in the same hub the ghost buttons presses reoccurred.

From a Logitech fangurl I have brought Logitech stuff for years [my old blu G15 stll works grat from bran new after all these years] but the G940 was a vry big disappointment... the rudder pedals have lasted the longest so far.

So make some great high end pedals

Logitech has a long way to go to regain any trust in them from me after the G940 and the total lack of support after it turned out to be a lemon. These baby steps are a little encouraging, however I will wait to see if they can follow through with real support for their products.

I bet that continue using the same pot's of previous model, only X and Y axes (of X-55, X-56) use HALL sensor. AFAIK the same Melexis 3D 90333 used in T.1600M and Warthog.

Pot's cost too cheap for joystick industry for they think in stop use, VKB say that in batch joy pot cost less than $ 0.10 (each).
