Looks legit, must be nearly ready, that is exactly what I expected it to be.


Do they sell the stick and gimbal separate from the throttle now? Is would be pretty grim if someone had to buy a full Warthog hotas just to get the gimbal for the F-18 stick.


However, I wouldnt put it past TM.

It is legit. They have done it, finally! Thrustmaster starts the pre-order cycle today on June 7, 2019. It will be available through their Thrustmaster e-shop. Commercial availability starts from July 25, 2019. Retail price will be around 179,99£. This is for the grip, only. The throttle was not mentioned anywhere as far as I am aware. As a source check the news section on Thrustmaster's homepage. Will be an instant buy for me as soon as it is available in e-shop, today.

Unknown, they've not mentioned about the gimble, other than it’s compatible with the Warthog and Cougar.

Think they might have a hard sell though, considering the price of the stick is almost the same as the gamble AND stick of the Warthog.

If they released the F-18 stick with a new, metal gimbal, for 300€, I'd probably buy it ASAP. As it is now, although I love the Hornet, the stick alone is kinda low on my priorities. Missed opportunity to fix one long-standing issue and make even more cash than they'll do now, in my opinion.

One thing I like is there's a place to rest your thumb. Unlike the Warthog grip.

I'm not sure that's enough for me to spend $200 for it. Probably not. One less 4 switch button that I use for zoom in and out. I'd miss that. I don't like the zoom on the throttle slider.

You can use the little wheel-looking thing. A reviewer said it's actually a 3-way switch (forward, aft, press), not an axis. The amount of available buttons is the same as the Warthog stick.

Yes, but not as convenient. I'm not a fan of 4 way switches with push buttons. It's supposed to be a replica of an F/A-18 stick. It doesn't seem to be exactly.

Plus, i'm just messing around until the F-16 is released. Unless the P-47 beats it.
